Lumina 3.1

Shame on general motors, just like most other problems they ignore, they refuse to admit they have a serious problem with the head gaskets on the 3.1. everyone i talk to says the same thing, stay away from front wheel drive gm's..... it is no wonder they are in trouble, they blow you off when it comes to standing behind their product, and we roll over and take it. we need to send a clear message to general motors and their piss poor attitude by spending our hard earned money at a reputable car company..... i know it's the last gm i'll ever own.
