'Lumina has always symbolized great value,' said Don Parkinson, Lumina brand manager. 'Among its long list of standard equipment is an impressive safety package that helps parents feel secure while transporting their children. It helps provide the intangible peace of mind parents are seeking in a worry-free family car.'
For 2000, Lumina adds to its long list of standard features power windows with driver's Express-Down feature and lockout feature, rear window defogger, a cargo net and an AM-FM cassette stereo with speed-compensated volume. A few other standard features include:
• Air conditioning with CFC-free refrigerant
• Dual power outside mirrors
• Cruise control
• 4-wheel independent suspension
• Tilt-Wheel™ adjustable steering column
• Variable intermittent windshield wipers.
The Lumina 3100 V6 engine has become LEV (Low Emissions Vehicle) compliant in states requiring California emissions, and gains 15 horsepower and five lbs.-ft. of torque from the help of new cylinder heads.
Lumina lists many standard safety features, a few include:
• Driver and front-passenger air bags*
• Automatic Daytime Running Lamps (DRL)
• Child Protection Package.
Worry-free features include 100,000 miles between tune-ups†, 6-years/100,000-mile corrosion protection and long life engine coolant.†
For added confidence, Lumina provides a 3-year/36,000 mile GM bumper to bumper limited warranty, 24-Hour Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation programs for its owners, plus PASS-Key II and the optional dealer-installed OnStar system.
'Lumina represents Chevrolet's continued commitment to practical individuals and family-conscious buyers,' Parkinson added. 'It provides many standard features and plenty of peace of mind.'
'Lumina's quality and attributes have not gone unnoticed. The Chevrolet Lumina won the 1999 J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study in the premium midsize car segment, with just 87 problems per 100 cars. Its high value earned it a Consumer Guide Online (web site) ‘Budget Buy' award in the midsize car category for 1999.'Source - GM Corporation
