Nice vehicle but unreliable

1997 Chevrolet Lumina LS 4dr Sedan


The Lumina LS has a smooth ride, handles
well, and looks good. It
takes alot of pressure to brake,
especially if you need to do so quickly.
Great gas mileage for a V6
mid-sized sedan. The real issue with
this Chevy is reliability. The vehicle
only comes with a 3 yr/36000 mile
warranty. A couple months after mine
expired the trouble started: the fuel
pump died once, a gasket went bad, a
wheel bearing need replacing, and more.
I've had three repairs of $1000+ and
one of almost $500 - all in the last three
years, between 36000 and 70000 miles.
This has discouraged me from EVER buying
a GM vehicle again.
