1997 Chevrolet Lumina LS 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car from my mother who bought it new. It has almost exactly 193,000 miles on it and I just got the death sentence for it. It has been leaking coolant, which is common with the Luminas, for probably the last 60,000 miles. The coolent has finally leaked into the engine parts causing random misfiring. It has tranny problems. This car had terrible brakes. I constantly was replacing brakes and rotors. It had suspension problems. In addition, it had annoying electrical problems. The driver's window stopped working, headlight electrical problems, cruise broke, no left turn. This was all electrical, not fixed by replacing bulbs. It was never fun to drive. Bad turning radius

Favorite Features

Roomy interior. Could fit three car seats across the back seat. Big trunk, great car for toting children's equipment, etc.

Suggested Improvements

Turning radius, more peppiness, better brakes.
