1992 Chevrolet Lumina Reviews

I've owned my lumina 4 just over 1 year (used), had 74,000 miles and 1 owner. I've had to replace the starter. Tires. Just now needing brake pads. there's some weird thing happening with the low coolant light (comes on periodically and then just goes away, never overheats), but other than that, all of my cars from this point 4ward will be this model!!!
This was my first car, and I loved it unconditionally. Everything was amazing, and she even had 200+k miles on her. I miss her dearly.
Love it!!! Makes it out of lights faster then even the new little sports cars, big and roomy i dont like driving other cars i feel traped in and closterphobic, big and wide but drives and turns like a small car, some basic repairs due to age and milage but in the long run hes a tank !!!
