1995 Chevrolet Lumina LS 4dr Sedan


I inherited my 1995 Lumina in 2001 with 4k to 5k on the odometer. The Good. No interior rattles, all power accessories work well, and now with 72,000 miles the engine still runs like new. Smooth ride and tranny. Feels safe. The Bad. It is not the most reliable of vehicles. At just 10000 miles or so i had a leaking intake gasket manifold that cost $800 to fix. minor things such as the power door locks breaking, the AC not working, brakes warping, needing a new ball joint, and fuel injectors needed cleaning. The seats are not very ergonomic and feels like i am sitting in an old catchers mitt. Overall...the engine has adequate performance for freeway merging and makes for a tolerable commute.

Best Features

Big, juicy, American-car styling. Alloys look sharp. Very little rust for a 15 year old car. With this car being manufactured in 1995, it was way ahead of its time. Feels solid and interior does not rattle like new cars from Toyota, Mazda, Nissan etc. Smooth transmission feels flawless.

Worst Features

Suspension of a 1970's Buick needs improvement. Needs firmer seats with better lumbar support. Early engine problems do not inspire much confidence with GM products. GM should think about extending factory warranties to compete with Hyundai and Mitsubishi.
