Death (untimely) of a 1996 Lumina

1996 Chevrolet Lumina 4dr Sedan

Review

Routine maintenance was fine - nothing
major just brakes, oil changes, nor
=mal service. Car was highway driven
and not punished.

At 85,000 it needed a new head gasket
and at 110,000 blew two connecting rods
at 60 MPH. No warning on either - just
failure.

Liked the car but will never buy
another one. My 1990 Toyota Camry just
went past 225,000 miles and all it ever
requires is rountine maintenance, oil
changes an occasional set of brakes and
one clutch (155,000 miles).


Worst Features

A reliable engine that lasts more than 85,000 miles
