1998 Chevrolet Lumina 4dr Sedan


Review

We picked the car out for my mother - in- law in 1999 with 15001 miles on it. She wanted a 6 passenger car so she could drive her bridge playing pals around. Out of about 10 of them she and the Lumina are the only ones still around. She doesn't drive anymore so it's now the #4 vehicle in a 3 driver family. I'm going to put on its first new set of tires and probably keep it for another 10 years.


Favorite Features

It gets good mileage and is very comfortable to drive and ride in.


Suggested Improvements

The company needs to build more 6 passenger cars that are this bullet proof.

1998 Chevrolet Lumina LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this car in April of 2001 with 28000 miles and it has been as reliable as one would want. I had the AC compressor replaced at 45000 and sans the typical maintenance this car has been a dream. Pickup is very good, handles bad weather (snow/rain) well and fuel economy is a solid 20MPG. My only issue with this is the steering ratio is really short.


Favorite Features

Power seats, good pickup, solid MPG average.


Suggested Improvements

Steering ratio is short so pulling into parking spaces can be a pain.

1998 Chevrolet Lumina LTZ 4dr Sedan


Review

Nice looking and fun to drive - but glad I bought the extended warranty. Bought used 3 years ago with 30,000 miles, have since put $6,000 worth of work thru the warranty - fuel injectors, water pump, oil pan gasket, ABS sensors, alternator, replaced engine-bearing failure, sunroof motor,door lock switch, brake rotors - you name it. And all this in a car that has been well maintained and has only 75,000 miles currently. Planning to dump it before the warranty expires.


Favorite Features

Good looking car and respectable power and handling in a larger sedan.

Review

I bought my lumina in October 2008 and I have already had an oil and radiator leak. The gas mileage is horrible, it's a very loud car with no power and it seems every time I go and get my oil changed they tell me another thing wrong with it. The interior is falling apart and on a rainy day the interior fogs up horribly, even with defrost on. I hate my car.


Favorite Features

Comfortable interior lots of room.


Suggested Improvements

Not such a crappy engine.
