1992 Chevrolet Lumina Reviews

We bought this '92 Euro from a woman who had it in her garage for 14 yrs with 103,000 orig miles on it! New tires, battery, plugs, fresh freon charge... Had it 2 years now, zero issues. Nicest older car on the road, drives perfectly, huge inside, quick on the street too! Love the 4 wheel disks and velour interior! Comfortable!! Bright red annoys wife but sure stands out in the parking lots arou...
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.
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!!!
