We purchased this car for the handling, horsepower and price. It had 25,000 miles on it at purchase. We've owned it since 1999, with no problems except brakes. With the sport tires this car drives like a sports car. At $200 each for tires, I purchased the cheaper Aquatread tires, don't do it. We finally need a bigger vehicle, and my wife doesn't want to give it up. It has been a great car for two kids, with a big trunk and enough separation in the backseat to keep the kids reasonable distance apart (a little less fighting).
Horsepower and handling. Highway mileage is good
Some cheap GM parts, like visor lock came out early in life
I purchased this car for its safety ratings and its overall design. I did not want the "Soccer Mom" mini-van but on the other hand needed something big enough to get the job done. This car was it. It looks nice (rather sharp I think) I like the leather interior and the alloy wheels. I love the interior design for the most part. The major flaws are only one cup holder and the postioning of the ashtray (almost non existent). It is a little tricky with the brakes (abs) and I am having now problems with CV joints. Other than that, it's great!
Moon Roof, Stereo, and the Power Seat! Defintly the seat, I am short and it adjusts perfectly. I like the seat belt can be positioned down for short drivers.
Theft Lock issue on the stereo (make it easier to get the code)more cup holders and diffrent positioning of the ash tray.
I've had this car for about 18 months; it is not a race car, but fuel economy is good.(24-27mpg on avg) The only serious problem has been with the anti- lock brake system (sensor?) The ride and transmission are smooth. The exterior looks okay and is holding up well.
I bought this car thinking that I would
just keep a year or two. It was a used
car, but I love it. I usually drove
Dodge vehicles and just lost my Stratus
to a bad car accident. I have to say
this car is wonderful. I intially
thought it was a "Old lady" car. But
its sharp even at its age. I have to
say I lucked out it only had 15000
miles on it upon purchasing it. I
think its a very sharp car. It had all
the extras and even the rims are cool.
I have had other Lumina owners
say "wow" I wish I had all those
options. It looks more like a Monte
Carlo on the inside and it mentions
that on the orignal sticker and the
I like the leather seats,moon roof, and
the wheels and the dual exhaust.
The spoiler should sit up more and
chrome should have been included on the
I have driven this vehicle for 77000
of its 103000 miles. Only parts to be
replaced over its lifetime are
ignition key lock cylinder and the
generator. Other than this there have
been no problems. The vehicle has just
had its mandatory annual state
inspection and passed flawlessly. It's
a good car. Too bad they stopped
Automatic running lights and
headlights go on by sensor at dark and
turn off when the ignition is turned
