You Have To Drive It To Believe It! — One good memory of driving this car was when returning from a long trip to visit with my mom. When returning home, I was casually driving along the highway......that had very little traffic.... in the travel lane at 85 mph, when two smaller cars go wizzing by at an accelerated speed. I pulled out and followed these 2 cars going 115 mph for about 30+ minutes straight! I was so proud of my car's performance! The Lumina Z-34 did not shake, sway, vibrate nor did the engine whine one little bit!

So Lucky To Find This Car — This car is beautiful. And going on 20 years old, she still get to highway speeds with no problem. Pretty decent interior, but missing a few amenities (cup holder??). So satisfying to drive. Very responsive acceleration and braking. Long front end means I have to watch the terribly designed entrances to some parking lots in my area (no lowering kit for me). Gas mileage is 22 - 27 mpg. Not too bad. Overall, a powerful car with a semi retro look and good quality. With good maintenence, she can last another 20 years.

Lumina Z34 — This car used to be my mothers, when I turned sixteen, we couldnt agree to a car for me. So she decided to give me this one. I still have it, but its parked in my garage, covered up. I didnt drive this car long, but I loved it. No one made fun of me for driving this Lumina! Watch the door handles on this car, they're easy to break, and VERY costly to fix. My older brother about died when he had to pay for it. The alternator's like to go bad in these cars. My dad put six of them in, before he had a friend build a speciality alternator, made to go on Police cars, to keep it running.

Pros

FAST! big engine, nice ride, lots of room

Cons

UGLY! some trouble with automatic transmission sensor (won't always shift to or from 2nd at high RPM's)

Lumina: It's What's On The Inside That Counts — Car is an amazing people hauler...but it is definitely not lacking in performance...V6 3.4 liter engine gives it plenty of pick-up and it is suprisingly quick and agile for its size thanks to a well-tuned suspension. Only problem-the car ain't so pretty-gray color and drab styling make it an ugly duckling with a heart of gold

'93 Chevy Lumina 2dr Euro — Performance is good, acceleration is relatively swift, and the brakes are good (the ABS works which is nice), with discs on all 4 wheels. Build quality isn't great on the inside. The dash coverin has warped and is peeling in places (around the windscreen heater vent and under the dash lip on the passenger side.), also the fuse cover in the glove box is broken and the trim panel in the footwell on the passenger side will not stay on. The car looks pretty good, with a pointy nose, 16" milled aluminium wheels and a spoiler it looks quite sporty. The interior is quite nice with front bucket seats, and a faux leather sports steering wheel, the rev counter adds to the sporty feel, though seems a little un-necessary in a car with an auto-box. On the whole, quite attractive. Gas mileage isn't bad, around 25mpg (US gallons are only 3.6 litres, and octane levels are lower 87, 89, 93) on 89octane gasoline. Maintenance has been relatively cheap so far, Oil filters, spark plugs and air filters are pretty cheap, as is the transmission fluid filter, though batteries are expensive by US standards at $89 (side post batteries seem to be more expensive). The car is relatively fun to drive. Some where between a family car and a sports car i guess. Though the fun factor is hampered by front wheel drive and an auto gearbox, though the 3.1 V6 does provide enough power.

An Excellent Car For The Money — I originally got this car for free but had to do a bunch of work on it. I ended up having about $500 in it and it ran and drove perfect. It drove as good or better than some cars worth over 10x as much! It got good gas mileage, and NEVER broke down on me. I really liked it.

Get up and go was never a problem. Where ever the car went a lot of heads would turn and questions asked about it.

Head Turning Sports Car — A sports car that is great on gas, good handling with amazing acceleration. It makes a great teenager car or could be a great family car as well. I got this for my son's first car and I felt comfortable with him driving it.

Go Hard Turtle!!!! — My Lumina is my fall back car. Any time I have problems with my other car, I drive this one. Its a 3.1 liter v6 with a cool air intake. It once was the shmoobing car, everyone wanted to ride in this car. Ive wrecked it many times but it still came back strong.

.... — everything about the car as far as performance goes is top notch. it runs well and there are hardly any problems with it. We got it when I was two and just this last summer the air went out. could have gotten it replaced but it was a bit expensive. never really had alot of engine trouble. there are a few scratches but no dents.
