This is my 2nd Lumina, both purchased
as 1 year used from Avis Auto Rental.
My commute is 46 miles/day, with 1/3
city and the other 2/3 freeway. I
average 28 MPG (UNREAL). Other than a
front brake job at 60K miles on my 2nd
car, I have had ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS
WITH EITHER VEHICLE requiring dealer
service. I currently have 73k miles on
my 1999 and STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL
TIRES with legal tread! A great front
wheel drive system: I live on a hill
with lots of snow in the winter and
have had this car on many mountain dirt
roads with absolutely no power or
traction problems. Chevy gets a GOLD
STAR for this very well designed, basic
Simple but comfortable interior:
headlights always on; great
reliability, economy and FWD traction
in snow, ice and wet weather. Smooth,
quiet ride even in windy conditions.
Redesign of air circulation to bring in
COOL outside air w/o having to use
A/C. Recommend slower speeds for
intermittent wiper. Both Luminas
developed slight ""clunk" noise when
shifting from low to 2nd gear...never
got worse or seemed to cause any
problem....just annoying at times.
