owned one for 4 years, very dependable!!

only had to replace altinator, very reliable, inexpensive to maintain. Mine had a ticking sound the whole 4 years i had it and was louder in cold weather but it didn't effect the car at all. My friend has a Lumina and his does the same thing, but doesn't effect it. I would recommend this car any day!!

Just keeps on going

This is one trooper of a car, you can't go wrong with one of these! Good reliable engine, sturdy transmission, durable body, and has plenty of feature options.

Bring back the Lumina!

This is my 2nd one. I owned a 1998 and traded it in after owning it for 8 years. Best car I ever had. The 2nd one I bought is a 1996 with 153,000 miles on it. The previous owner took meticulous care of it and it runs like a top. Dead of winter, below freezing temps and the car pops off with 1 turn of the key. I use it as a spare car but I still love it. I wish GM would bring it back with all the reliability they were made with.

Granny Car

This is a granny car!! It has a column shift for Pete's sake! But seriously, it's very reliable, has lots of pep. (Not something you'd expect in a granny car) Also somewhat good on gas.

Bought used

Nice handling has somewhat of a style. Seems very popular. Good for transportation, not a woman getter, but is reliable.
