Hi drivers,

we moved to Canada from EU and were looking for van. Found Chevy Lumina 1997 (latest should be 1996) V6 3,4L 207CID FI gas for 1400 CAD (~1000 USD). According to current owner (3rd) it was a city car only before she bought it. About 185 000 km, engine+transmission changed 50 000 km ago - don't know why. Other stuff works fine except brakes - sometimes pulsing during braking - I guess something with brake disks?

The girl drove it thru British Columbia, Washington, Alberta, Yukon, visited even arctic ocean without any problems.


I checked autotrader.com and found only more expensive ones:
- 1996 336,010 miles $851
- 1996 101,718 miles $3,999
- 1995 176,978 miles $1,997


Review are mainly positive:

Did not find any major flaws except age (I guess insurance will be higher). MPG is same as in newer vans. So maybe just safety stuff and some new sensor.

Is it good deal? OR should we stick with our old plan which was some Dodge Grand Caravan from 200x ?
