1995 Chevrolet Lumina APV 3.8 Liter from North America
I have had to replace brakes twice.
I had to replace the brake cylinder because it was leaking.
Service Engine lights comes on a lot.
Replacing Battery & Spark plugs a royal pain due to van design.
Replaced Ignition Modulator.
Had to get the battery terminal posts tightened.
Broken driver and passenger side door handles which seems common after reading your website.
Windshield wipers have an electrical short somewhere in the dash. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.
Service Engine light still comes on despite tune up and replacement of ignition module. Runs rough when the light is on.
Sometimes my van just won't start, and sometimes while driving down the road it just loses power.
A/C fan switch doesn't work on high, just on medium and low.
My van has good days and bad days. On good days, when no service engine light comes on, it rides like a champ. I love the automatic door and I love the space age looking design. Very roomy, and very comfy even to my very tall husband. If I wasn't having these electrical problems, I would probably rate this vehicle very highly. If anyone else has had similar electrical problems please reply. The factory speakers that came with my van are excellent. Thanks
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Every review I read has the windshield wiper problem.
Does anyone know the solution. My van has the same problem.

We have had similar problems with our Lumina Van. We have had to replace the door handles as well. We also have Windshield Wiper problems. Estimate to fix - $800. Way to much to spend on this car. There is also something leaking onto the floor of the driver's side. Neither the driver's window or passenger's side window will go up if you put them down. The rear door will not lock. We've replaced the battery three times in 9 years. One good thing is the car is paid for - just wish I didn't have to buy it every couple of years in repairs...
