1991 Chevrolet Lumina from North America
A great car to drive every day
This car probably holds the record for miles on a Lumina with the original engine. The motor does not use or burn oil and I drive the car 80 miles every day. These are not exclusively highway miles, as the car has plenty of city and country miles on some rough Louisiana roads. The car's original transmission lasted until 380,000 miles. This has been a great car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

That is awesome---My 1991 Lumina had 320,000 miles on the original engine, but the body became too badly rusted for it to pass inspection up here in the snow belt (Buffalo, NY.), which is a shame considering it still ran like a champ showing no signs of quitting. The Lumina certainly is a superb, reliable vehicle!! They should start a 300,000+ club for Lumina owners, since it seems to be a common theme. I personally know 4 people who have early 90's Luminas, with well over 300,000 miles!

The lumina is great a tough reliable car. I bought one from a guy that has been sitting all winter in Michigan cold (-20 below.) One turn of the key she fired right up and drove off like a champ. This car never let me down, only minor problems such as oil leak 2 drips a day, to minor rust, power steering loses fluid, but hey what can you expect from a 91 that's over 15 years old. very good car. fun to drive.
