Nickle and Dimed to Death

1996 Chevrolet Lumina LS 4dr Sedan


I have owned a 1996 Lumina LS for the last 8yrs. I have replaced the following since purchasing. Water pump, alternator, fuel pump, driver- side power window motor, and ignition assembly. In addition the 3.1 V6 engine has a problem where the Intake manifold gasket fails every 30,000 miles. I have replaced this twice ($1100 each time). This item should be subject to a recall by GM but is not. I highly recommend you avoid this vehicle. You will spend a fortune on repairs.

Best Features

Styling. Roominess.

Worst Features

3.1 V6 Engine by GM is unreliable.
