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
Raise seats up and widen door openings
strengthen head gaskets and plenums
