3.1 gives great milage
By Tom on
1997 Chevrolet Lumina 4dr Sedan
I drove this as a co car since new. Bought it back from Co. at 140,000 miles Always had it serviced by Curt Warner Chev of Van.,WA. I now change the oil/filters. Took trip to Wisconsin this summer and got great mileage. Avg total trip was 30mpg. Never had problems other than normal battery replacements, radiator flush, fuel pump replaced. (in tank preventative.) Change oil every 3000 miles for sure. Keep good tires, brakes, and alignment. Great car.
Comfortable seats. Smooth tranny. Nice large rear doors. Smooth engine. Aerodynamic design for mileage. Not boxy. Bright daytime running lights.
Better coffee cup holders. Adjustable visors for swing to window. Go strong on the visor clips. (all of this said for newer GM products of course) My 2005 UPLANDER Van has good visors/clips.
