1992 Chevrolet Lumina Z-34 3.4L DOHC from North America
Sporty and Practical
The timing belt broke at 100,000 miles. The head gasket blew at about the same time. A rather expensive repair.
An O-Ring in the engine went at 110,000 miles. That was extremely expensive to fix.
This car gives you all the power and handling you could want from a performance sedan. The acceleration and top speed are very impressive considering the weight, and the car just looks great.
However, It get terrible gas mileage for a V-6.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If the shop that you took your car to knew the engine, or anything about the GM 60 degree V6 family of engines, they would have replaced the distributor O ring when they had the heads off doing the head gasket. I would have made them eat the bill for it since they failed to do it while they were in there.
