Lumina LTZ lover
By marylee on
1999 Chevrolet Lumina LTZ 4dr Sedan
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
The 3800 series motor. It cruises.. No hesitation up and down hills. Slices thru any amount of snow.. Handles well in any weather. Oh. I got 5 speeding tickets and almost lost my license. Didn't even realize I was going that fast. Ticket free now 4 years. Think the car is having a hard time with
I love the performance of my 99 LTZ.
200,625 miles as of today.
Religious about new oil and filter every 3,000 miles.
There were some issues however, tranny rebuild, plenum leaked coolant into my oil pan, air conditioner has a leak, plastic interior parts suck, new ignition switch, anti-lock sensor taken out by broken tone ring.
Aside from all that, I love.
I will rebuild when needed.
