Review

I bought my Lumina from my boyfriends mom in November of 2008. It had 180,000 miles when I got it, now has 215,000. I'm the second owner. I have had to fix some minor issues here and there but the car is amazing. Takes it like i give it. I have no disappointments in the way it drives or handles. Incredibly reliable. Gas mileage is pretty good, without sacrificing power, which is great with today's economy. I recommend this car to anyone looking for a roomy, comfortable, reliable vehicle.


Best Features

Acceleration, Huge backseat when front seats are up. Handling, Great in snow.


Worst Features

Bucket seats! I Hate the bench! better floor heating vents.

1998 Chevrolet Lumina LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased the car when it had 141,000 and it now has 156,000 The car is great. The engine and ride are both smooth and it is steady at 20 MPG. The only thing I would change is the turning radius. It can be a pain but, overall the car is the best I've ever owned.I wish they were still making them.


Best Features

Rides and runs smooth, steady MPG


Worst Features

Turning radius

Review

I bought my lumina in October 2008 and I have already had an oil and radiator leak. The gas mileage is horrible, it's a very loud car with no power and it seems every time I go and get my oil changed they tell me another thing wrong with it. The interior is falling apart and on a rainy day the interior fogs up horribly, even with defrost on. I hate my car.


Best Features

Comfortable interior lots of room.


Worst Features

Not such a crappy engine.

1998 Chevrolet Lumina LTZ 4dr Sedan


Review

This car was my moms for 10 years and I just got it as my first car and what a great car it is. the only problem so far is a hole in a plastic elbow for radiator fluid line but its a fairly easy fix the only thing i don't get is why use plastic for something that's holding pressurized hot liquid ? The stock not supercharged 3.8 kicks on the streets and can spank most stock cars off the line


Best Features

3.8L Engine !!! Leather seats sun/moon roof


Worst Features

Aluminum rims stink - they oxidize and change size when heated and cooled and due to that they leak! Also 16" rims w/ AMC bolt pattern = Lame. fix = 15" Chevy bolt rims Front wheel drive is boring. give me some Rear Wheel drive !!!

Review

We picked the car out for my mother - in- law in 1999 with 15001 miles on it. She wanted a 6 passenger car so she could drive her bridge playing pals around. Out of about 10 of them she and the Lumina are the only ones still around. She doesn't drive anymore so it's now the #4 vehicle in a 3 driver family. I'm going to put on its first new set of tires and probably keep it for another 10 years.


Best Features

It gets good mileage and is very comfortable to drive and ride in.


Worst Features

The company needs to build more 6 passenger cars that are this bullet proof.
