I ordered my 1999 Lumina LTZ from GM built to my personal specs.
I had only four problems:
1. Alternator went out after 3 years
2. Switch for the automatic windows went out after 6 years
3. I was told my gas line needed replacement after 11 years (Maybe yes or maybe no)
4. When I floor the car the AC fan slows down ( No big deal since it rebounds after a few seconds)
Other than that I have had no other problems.
Every time I consider replacing my Lumina I back off asking myself, "WHY".
I never had the engine tuned, I change the Oil every 10000 miles whether it needs it or not.
The tires get expected life. The Body is in excellent shape minus a couple of parking lot dings

I bought my wife this car because it had the 3.8 and it was so beautiful. I hate Luminas and I didnt consider this a Lumina. It looked different with the package on it...however...it smelled like a Lumina, acted like a Lumina, and it was in the shop once a week like a Lumina.
Interior is very uncomfortable.
Hard for a real man to back into the cockpit without hitting his head and his butt. Seat is too low to the floor.
Knees and legs groaned to get out after 200 miles.
Gas mileage in town is 21 and on the highway is 27.7.
It still got 21 on 30 mile trips.
Had to go on 200 mile trips to get 27.7
Go figure... Intake gaskets and plenums are easy to go out on this.
If you smell antifreez

The 1999 Chevy Lumina is the best car ever. I have only had to provide basic maintenance and it still runs like new! My Lumina has 177,00 miles on it and I'm hoping to get another 100,000 out of it! It's still extremely comfortable and handled VERY well after hitting a deer doing 50mph! It never swerved or tried to leave the road. The damage was under $2000.00. It took the impact very well. I only wish they'd start making the Lumina again...I'd surely buy another one! Way to go Chevy!
