1995 Chevrolet Lumina 4dr Sedan


Review

70,000 miles and the Intake Manifold
fails. I work in the automotive
aftermarket. Now that I have had this
issue, I can't hear enough about what
a piece of junk this 3.1 is. Mechanics
said they see this problem all the
time with the 3.1. Most leaks
leak 'out'. Mine leaked 'in'. A gallon
of antifreeze in a crank case is never
a good thing. Loved the car, hate the
engine. You would have thought GM
would have said something about the
chronic problem. A new manifold isn't
that much to replace....a new engine
is.

The car has since gone away, now I understand why, not that the Malibu is any better.

Review

bought for 6 grand with only 27k at 5
yrs old. good power from reliable
engine, nice styling, back seat is
huge, but at expense of front room. I
had to replace rotors, and brakes are
not the best in general. No other
repairs in 3+ years. Handles like a
beached whale, though. If the seats
were not so mushy, and the interior not
so cheap plastic-ey, I would like it a
lot better. But, with a wax job, and
those alloy wheels, it looks damn sharp
in the driveway. And, with the money i
saved driving boring cars like this, I
live in a half million dollar house.
Not so bad for a school teacher




Best Features

The engine is powerful and makes a really cool growl when you hit the gas. I personally like the ex. styling. The alloy wheels are very sharp too. Backseat is big enough to play touch football.


Worst Features

If the seats were not so mushy, I'd actually be pretty happy. The dashboard is pitifully cheap plastic. And no rear defroster? isn't there a law about that?

Review

The 3.4 spun a rod bearing at 50,000.
Ever since I have a 'tack' noise in
the upper end of the motor. Otherwise
it has been a great car to own/drive.


Best Features

Very peppy, ride is above acceptable.


Worst Features

Bring the car back and put the 3.8 in it.

Review

Well, I've changed my mind on this
vehicle. I'm now at 140,000 miles and
I've had to replace another fuel
injector which cost another $300. The
mechanic said that the 4 other injectors
will probably short out in a year or so.
Great. Also, I just had to pay $150 to
get my left turn signal fixed. I havn't
been impressed with the build quality.
Cheap materials are used throughout the
whole car. I can't recomend this
vehicle, I'm getting rid of it as soon
as I can.


Best Features

The torquey engine puts out some nice low end power. Lots of room. Nice exterior styling, but not the best ever as I seem to have said in my earlier review.


Worst Features

The seats need neck support. Increase the quality of the interior materials because they're extremely cheap. Needs standard anti-lock brakes. Definately needs better fuel economy.

Review

I bought the car with 75000 miles. At
82000 miles, the transmission went out.
At 90000, the head gasket went out. It
warped my heads due to the block being
iron and the heads being aluminum. I
felt kinda bad for those people who had
the 3.4L engine; those head gasket kits
were NATIONALLY BACK ORDERED. Must have
been a very bad winter on a not-so-good
engine. Now, at 93000, I noticed
transmission fluid leaking. It bothers
me that I still owe more than it's
worth and that I've put over $1300 into
it the two years I've owned it. If I
were you, I wouldn't buy one.


Best Features

Good power - V6 Gas mileage ok Good speakers


Worst Features

Engine Transmission More comfy seats Dash is separating and I don't know why.
