Really Nice Car Fun To Drive Around — really fast for a 93 and alot of people underestimated the quicknes and the speed of it but its just a really fun to just drive and chill in hoopin to put some more things in to it but it will come.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its pretty fast for a 93 and look good doing it

Cons: still have stock rims and its getting kinda old

Not The Car You Want Right Now. — It has 204000 miles on it and body is just getting so rusted out and paint peeling off of it left and right. Interior is just worn out, it looks like 40 years old. Just not my car at the moment.

Pros: Better on gas milage

Cons: engine acts up so much

Not So Great Car, At A Good Price. — I'm not looking for speed/accel performance, I'm looking for economy performance. For that, it's terrible. I'm pulling every trick in the book, and managing 26-29 MPG, mixed city/highway. Drives well, but has needed work since I acquired it at 113k miles. Traded a used laptop for it - they had 3 cars for 2 people, and I had 3 laptops for 2 people - worked out both ways.

Pros: Not much at all. Your average midsize sedan.

Cons: Chronic GM W-Body issues (oil leak, exhaust leaks)

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

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)

'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.

Pros: Looks, low maintenance costs, ABS

Cons: build quality, auto gear box

Bad Ass Lumina — The Chevy Lumina is one of the best cars to come out in the past 20 years. I say this because the 93 lumina that my Aunt handed down to me that was purchased in 93 minus a few minor repairs has all of its original parts and has 265,00 + miles on it and still runs great with a few minor things that need to be repaired, but it is 15 years old and like i said it has 260k miles on and what car with that doesnt need a few things fixed on it. the car is comfortable to ride in and the interior is strong after 15 years of wear and tear, being used as a construction vehicle it still looks great.

Pros: Runs Forever

Cons: Its Old

Amazing Car — I have 2 1993 Chevy Luminas and I absolutely love them! They are a fun car to drive and are very reliable. One of them was used as my first car which I got in an accident with but is currently being repaired. No problems other then what usually goes on a car(brakes,spark plugs and wires). Very good choice when buying them!

Best First Car — We got 265,000 miles out of this car before we finally replaced it. Only major issues we really had were transmission related, had to replace it a couple times in the last couple years, but other than that, good performance, good mileage, and great reliability, I miss the car, but it was getting old.

Pros: Sporty, fairly modern styling for the early 90's; was extremely reliable; spacious and comfortable.

Cons: Handling was a little heavy, high RPMs during acceleration compared to newer cars, paint faded really badly.
