The Car With The Ex Bf — small interior but good size trunk, not comfortable for long trips. Hood crumples easy in an accident.

Pros: comfortable ride, nice stereo, easy to replace parts

Cons: easy to get front end damage, rock chips, etc.  hard seats

Good Car For The Money. — It's a good first car.. it's been very forgiving of my heavy foot. Of course I'm getting better, but I'm not sure how many cars can take that kind of abuse. It's a hand-me-down from my grandma & she put 40,000 miles & I've already put 2000 (42000 in all) on it. I intend to trade it in because it's more car than I need. But it's definitely a good family car. Seats are lacking in support, but comfy nonetheless. It's big enough to fit 3 large western saddles (maybe more if I had more to squeeze into it) & be a good farm car. MPG isn't all that great, but if you drive a certain way, you can achieve about 25 average, I average 20. Overall, I don't mind being with this car until I can get one that's better fit for me (smaller, better MPG). I'm lucky to have such a reliable car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good first car. Reliable. Good family car/working car.

Cons: MPG, seats aren't very supportive. if you're short you can have issues reaching the pedals (I'm 5'6-5'7).

When Gm Built This Car They Did It Proper! — The Lumina 2nd generation sedan has a good balance of comfort, fun and practicality . This car is excellent on long trips, in terms of ride quality and fuel economy, There is little road noise inside the cabin and the Ls suspension remains firm yet still forgiving on your hind end even in the back seat, thanks in part to the Lumina's the 16" wheels. The 3100 engine is very reliable, and with over 310,000 km still offers plenty of power and no doubt about its reliability. I must cay when Gm Built this car in Oshawa they did it properly !

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: excellent overall fuel economy, outstanding ride comfort, And a surprisingly stiff and sporty suspension for a 4 door saloon.

Cons: There are a few features or lack there of that come to mind when I think of when i consider the Improvements that could have been made to this car. The lack cup holders in the back seats which means your passengers feel inclined to store their open beverages in the back of seat pockets, and that the rear seats do not fold down, allowing larger objects to be placed into the boot.
