Pros

More than enough power to get me where ever I needed to go

Cons

It had a driver that was tough on it and like any vehicle it gave out

My First Car.... — I loved this car. I inherited it from my parents when they bought a Ford Edge so I could get to the college without having to rely on friends. I beat the crap outta that car. That car was very solid, pity I was such a harsh driver. Petal to the metal acceleration eventually took its toll on the transmission and the engine it seems. In terms of performance, it was fast. I due to lack of road I never broke 170km/h but then again that car wasn't meant to go super fast. It gave me the impression of being more power and strength than speed. Build Quality. HAHAHAHA. It doesn't matter how tough you build a vehicle, you'll always find a way to break it. If I took care of it, I'd still be driving it. Everything that happened with that car was my own fault :P Appearance. Not the nicest car... doesn't compare to something like... I dunno, a Chrysler 300? But it was a good one. All the dents and scratches I put in it offroading just added character to it. Nothing quite gets me like people in their big shiny 4x4 trucks, babying them, never taking them off city streets. Where here I am, barrelling down back roads, climbing mountains, doing things that car was never meant to do. It didn't cost too much to own. Apart from the repairs, less than $2000 for insurance and about $80 bucks a fill. I managed to get roughly 400 km out of a tank but then again that was usually with me speeding to and from Cranbrook so that always hurt the tank a little. I found that car "Fun" enough that I regret being so hard on it. If I had a choice in what car I have now, I probably would have gone and bought another. So yea... I'd recommend it.

Reliable — The appearance of the car is that of an old cop car. It is a very comfortable vehicle that seats 6 passengers. The build quality is outstanding, the car barely needed anything done to it, and when it did everything was cheap. The acceleration is no sports car but its safe. The braking and handling both are good. Very Safe vehicle.

Pros

Pros = Family car, plenty of space, 3.1 liter V6 provides decent gas mileage.

Cons

Cons = Fairly ugly car, Passkey System, and i personally like smaller cars.

25

'95 Chevy Lumina Ls — It drives good. But the real problem is the passkey system that Chevy installed on it. Other than the fact that it cranks when it wants to, it drives just fine. The car is big enough for a whole family. It is rather fuel efficient and fun to drive.

Nice Car To Drive, Very Reliable, Good On Gas Easy To Work On. — I liked the comfort for long trips. This car had minimal road noise. Always started no matter the weather. Very reliable car never was left stranded. The only negative thing I can say was the paint peaking issue, otherwise great car.

Lumina Is To Family What Cake Is To Fat Kid — Amazing family car that just has everything a family needs. Ours had the big v6 engine so power was never a problem and it was very easy on the wallet. She is not a sports car but, she has some pep...

It Runs, And I Dont Have To Do Much Work To It, It Works. — I have a 1995 Chevy Lumina, that has 208,000 miles on it, peeling paint, but I only paid 500 dollars for it, so I am not going to complain as of now. I like the way it handles, but I am a little worried about how it will handle on snow and ice, as I just got the car.

Boring?

It's A 15 Year Old Car, Boring, But Fairly Reliable — I have a white 95 base Lumina sedan. This car is so plain, it should have "Generic" stenciled on the sides (and the way the paint is peeling, it may get the stencil sooner or later.) It's a fine little $1200 car, gets decent mileage, and the A/C works here in Tucson. It's had minor problems, the EGR was loose, the thermostat was stuck open (previous owner was running straight water in the radiator,) and the return hose for the power steering arced on the alternator and started to leak oil all over the carport. When I got it in January, for $1200, the previous owner had replaced the windshield and put a set of new tires on it. He'd buggered up the A/C, but a little artic cool solved that problem Fun? Well, not very. But it's comfortable, very quiet, and loves the highway. If I had money, I'd be driving a sports car. The Lumina is very good value for not a lot of money. I think if I treat it nice, it'll last forever. Might even have it repainted at Maico or Earl Scheib!
