We bought this car new and from day one we have had problems with it. Had to replace brake drum a couple of times. They were so bad that we couldn't even get them cut.The drums kept burning up brake pads. Had to replace head gasket that cost me a pretty penny. Radiator leaks. Now there are problems with the transmission, sometimes it seems to be stuck in 1st gear. I don't know. I would never buy a Lumina again.
