Nice Ride but Look Out!
By Central PA on
1996 Chevrolet Lumina 4dr Sedan
Bought the car with 51,000 miles on it. It is an inexpensive mid-size car great for trips; however, I am leary on taking it anywhere too far! Had it for 3 months and replaced oil crancase sensor (didn't even drive it for 1500 miles). At 62,000 miles, the transmission went out without warning costing me $2800. Engine very noisy: a lot of lifter tap. Would hesitate on purchasing again!
Nice ride, good looking car, and great gas mileage.
GM needs to make a transmission that can do better than 60,000 miles (when the warranty runs out ironically). Trade it before 60K.
