    1996 Chevrolet Lumina 4 Dr LS SedanReview

    Overall An Acceptible Car — The chevy Lumina is a decent car for work or school driving. Bought this car with 37,400 miles now has 49,700. The car handles good, but has slow acceleration. Gas mileage is between 20-25mpg. Problems that I have had where with the lower intake gaskets leaking happend twice, and I have replaced the front brakes. This car also uses synthetic motor oil. I would only recomend this vehicle to people who know how to fix cars since this vehicle is known for some engine problems, and problems with the front suspension.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good for going to work, or the the store

    Cons: May need many repairs
