My dad has one of these vans. He bought it about 8 years ago. He has had no problems with it, other than the usually wear and tear. The motor has stayed together for 250K miles and still runs like brand new. The van has been great considering the torture we put it through. Only major thing that went wrong was the radiator went out and a bolt in the front to seats broke. But that is all. Just watch out for the front window. They cost at least $500 to replace because of the special tent so the sun doesn't blind the driver.

1990 Luminas came with a 3.1 liter engine, not a 2.8.
