Loaded, and just in from Texas, for our first camp hosting job in MN. I could pack everything in her that I could pack in our old Suburban!

"my transportation and home as we are homeless. She carried us back and forth to Texas and Minnesota so we didn't have to live in the cold in her. Just spent around $2000.00 in top of the line parts(and labor), so she would have a longer life. Now I am trying to get her back to MN so I can give my son her motor, as well as sell the brand new brakes and rotors. Best, easiest, greatest car, to drive and self-maintain!"

Pros: "A real workhorse, giving me YEARS of service"

Cons: "City MPG not as good as newer vehicles."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"I bought this car used in 1999 with about 30,000 miles on it. Since then I have driven it about 90,000 miles in 16 years. The Lumina has to be one of the best Chevrolets ever built. In addition to being a great car for me, I still see a lot of them on the road in my local area. Not bad for a series of cars built in the late 1990s. Reliability has been pretty good for a low-priced car of this age. Currently, I am dealing with a problem with the brake lights. It appears to be an intermittent electrical issue but my mechanic will keep working on it until it's fixed. There are a few small oil leaks, but as of now I would not be surprised if I got several more years of service out of it. At the time these cars were manufactured, this particular V6 engine was considered to be one of GM's best, and mine has stood the test of time. I had the transmission pan pulled at about the 100,000 mile level. Mechanic reported no issues. With its overdrive transmission I have often gotten 30 MPG on the highway. City mileage is typically a lot less, only in the teens."

"This car, even at almost 20 years old, still runs great! The only complaint I have is the paint chipping away. This seems to be an issue for this particular car, since I've seen this same issue on other white ones of it's year. But, as far as get up and go, it's got it!"

"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."
