Not to bad for an old car
By Phoenix on


1997 Chevrolet Lumina LTZ 4dr Sedan


Bought it with just over 97,000 miles on it. Put on about 10,000 since. But after about two weeks of owning it the engine would heat up very fast but after continuing to drive it for about a minute straight it'd go down until at an idle stop. Had a cracked cylinder head, worn hoses and cracked water pump. Then about a week after the A/C had a slow leak for a few days until it was dead. No money to fix and was moving to Phoenix! Still never found out what was wrong with it but dont want to spend the money to fix it. 2 months into owning it, engine runs very rough until driving at freeway speeds or engine is warm. Won't last me long but overall a good car, would be great if no mechanical problems

Best Features

Bigger car then the new one out. Interior is great, last long, cleans well, good head and leg room. Wish all new cars had this type of interior space. 'll miss the room once I get a new vehicle. Engine has good torque to speed up fast when needed.

Worst Features

Body has a lot of small dents from other cars. Wish it was a bit stronger exterior since people in AZ don't care about other people's cars. Car had leaks, first water pump, then A/C. Sure it happens but this car was very well kept, have all service records so shouldn't have happened
