1997 Chevrolet Lumina 4dr Sedan


My girlfriend bought this car a little over a year ago and it was a very realiable car until about a month ago. The frist thing was the intake gaskets had to be replaced at about 115000 miles. We got the car back and it ran fine for a 3 weeks when a new leak devloped. Took it to a shop and found that the timing chain cover was leaking. So that will be another $350 to fix. If you don't want to sink a lot of money into a car then don't buy one with the 3.1 or the 3.4 they have nothing but problems.

Best Features

Lots of interior space.

Worst Features

Don't use plastic gaskets or almminum heads on a cast iron block.
