"This is my second Lumina. I had a '96 which I bought in 2004. I drove it for 9 years with minimal repairs. I liked it so much I bought this '98 Lumina. So far, after a year of driving it, I've had to replace a bypass hose. It cost $8.00. These are very reliable cars if maintained."
"Ive had this car since 2005 when i started buying high end luxury cars to just drive this in winter. 10 years and over 110k later i am completely satisfied. I put some $$ into it but it has with stood the rigors of Ohio elements and also served its purpose. I will be letting it go after this winter, but this car has been on numerous road trips and has stood strong and tall to frigid temps and all."
"This car is my first car, it was first owned by my great grandmother, then my grandfather, and now me. When I received my car it only had 40000 miles on it, with the original tires, brake pads, and even spark plugs! I had to do some minor maintenance (radiator flushed, ac unit charged, brakes, tires, tune up) but nothing major. My grandpa has replaced all the motors for the power windows at least once, and currently only three of mine roll down, not that this is a major issues but it can be annoying. My car has no rust spots (although we have used some touch up paint in a few areas), and the body is very rigid and sturdy."
"I own this car and it has been great. I have about 170,000 miles and get great gas milage for the size of this car and would recomend this modle to everyone. Have 3.1 engine and get 26 miles to the gallon on the road"
"Well, on the plus side it is roomy inside but that's just about it. Bad things about the car include poor fuel economy around town and not much better on the highway. The ride is too soft so there is a lot of body roll and the bench seating only adds to the effect. The interior is extremely cheap and unpleasant to be in. The automatic gearbox is mediocre at best. The door handles let exterior air pass through them so a breeze comes from the interior door handles anything past 50 mph. Air conditioning doesn't really reach to the back. The engine doesn't have much power thus (even though it's a 3.1 liter V6) it's natural top speed is only 107. The body is very boring and simple. Overall the car is boring, slow, gas guzzling, cheap, and uninspiring to own and drive."
