Death (untimely) of a 1996 Lumina
By Lorne Greene on
Vehicle
1996 Chevrolet Lumina 4dr Sedan
Review
Routine maintenance was fine - nothing major just brakes, oil changes, nor =mal service. Car was highway driven and not punished. At 85,000 it needed a new head gasket and at 110,000 blew two connecting rods at 60 MPH. No warning on either - just failure. Liked the car but will never buy another one. My 1990 Toyota Camry just went past 225,000 miles and all it ever requires is rountine maintenance, oil changes an occasional set of brakes and one clutch (155,000 miles).
Suggested Improvements
A reliable engine that lasts more than 85,000 miles
