Love my 1999 LUMINA LTZ

Review

I ordered my 1999 Lumina LTZ from GM built to my personal specs. Fully loaded. 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

Nothing but trouble

Review

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

I bought this car in 2000 for 8500.00 w/40k miles. Its had one tune up and replaced the fuel pump/gas tank the first 2 weeks I had it. Since then its been in two car accidents (one was my fault) and had the front end body work done twice. Over 9 years it has had minimal problems. A/c, stuck window. Nothing Major. This year however, I have spent 1800.00 in repairs. 900 of that at the Chevy dealer. Big mistake. All in all. Its been problem free. Now we may be facing a transmission problem. Motor runs perfectly still. We are nearing 214,000 miles and planning to hit 300 by dec! Body is still Nice. Rides great. Mpg 27 mpg when the engines needs it.. We will rebuild it

Great for a to b

Review

I inhearited my Lumina from my mom. She had the car since 02. Really I have seen no mechanical problems. I'm a delivery driver in college and the gas mileage will suprise you. It's not flashy but it will get you from a to b pretty well. One thing I do have a problem with is there is only one cupholder. All in all if given the chance I think I might get another one

My wife and I have had this car for 7+ years. It is the closest thing to being a perfect auto that I have ever owned. Way ahead of the imports! If GM still made them I would buy another.

The Best Car of My Life

Review

The most comfortable, reliable car I have ever had. It was totaled in a car accident when somebody ran a red light and slammed into me. Otherwise I would still have my baby...It was big, smooth, powerful (!!!) AND fuel efficient. All pros and no cons!

It's a toss up

Review

I inherited this car from my mom after I wrecked mine. The compressor and condensor went out after only two years of ownership. Was told it would be cheaper to replace the car than fix it. The fuel guage stopped working after about two years. The ash tray broke off, two of the air vents are broken, both cup holders are broken, the passenger visor is broken and after more than an hour or two the seats become extremely uncomfortable. However, the car has almost 140,000 miles on it and no major mechanical work has had to be done. I would suggest that you weigh what's important to you in a car before you buy one of these.

Lumina LTZ is a best buy

Review

I bought this car for $200 under invoice with 6 miles on the odometer and have enjoyed every mile I put on it since. This car outperforms many cars priced $10K higher... if people didn't have to compensate for their shortcomings with a "name-brand" car, they would save a lot of money! When looking to buy a new car, I researched engines and found that the 3.8 L V6 was highly thought of and I now know why - it is a blast to drive and very reliable. This car has made me a GM customer for life.

This Lumina Rocks!

Review

I bought this LTZ new in January, 1999. The test drive sold me on the LTZs' torque, handling and ride! The 200HP 3.8 V6 and the 'stiff' cop car like ride have made this car a favorite. Four and a half years and 143000 miles later this baby's still going strong. The motor is durable and runs smoothly (no tune up yet!). Only mechanical problems have been an alternator replaced at 82K and the tranny rebuilt at 138K. I firmly believe the tranny issue is connected to a dim wit who messed up a filter change @ 70K... Bought and paid for, I hope to keep this going for, well, another 50-60K at least.
