2010 Chevrolet Lumina Picture & Review

The Chevrolet Lumina sedan , coupe and minivan were first introduced in 1989 for the 1990 model year as a new range of vehicles from the Chevrolet brand of General Motors to replace both the Chevrolet Celebrity sedan, and the Monte Carlo coupe. The Lumina was an answer from General Motors to the Ford Taurus. All Luminas were built at the Oshawa Car Assembly plant, in Ontario, Canada. The Chevrolet Lumina had the longest length from any other W-body car at the time.

Consumers were ultimately confused by having two different vehicles (the Lumina sedan and the Lumina APV minivan) share the same name, and the concept was eventually dropped when the Lumina APV was replaced by the Chevrolet Venture in 1997.

The North American Chevrolet Lumina was based on the mid-size GM W platform, which was shared with the Pontiac Grand Prix, Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, Oldsmobile Intrigue, Buick Regal and Buick Century (after 1996). Although the Lumina became a popular seller, GM was widely criticized in the motoring press for being late to the game in introducing a direct aero-designed competitor to the Ford Taurus. The Chevrolet Lumina's first generation ended production in 1994, making this the shortest-lived generation of the first-generation GM W-body cars.

In 1989, the Lumina became the nameplate under which Chevrolets were raced in NASCAR, more than a year before the model was available to the public. Irate fans bombarded NASCAR with letters protesting the unfairness of Chevrolet being allowed to race an aluminum car.

This is called the exhaust system and it is made from mandrel-bent stainless steel pipe that is 2 1/4-inches in diameter. On the roll of the muffler is the edge, angle-cut, 4-inches from the end gives a very stylish appearance.

Made with SUS304 pipes and flanges, manifolds are strong enough and designed well enough to quell the nine-wheel hp and 7 lb-ft of torque when combined with the turbo back. In turn, the increase in power came early, giving you a wider and more usable power band. So, if you want more power with a simple replacement part, then this can be manifold worthy candidate.

Tune In Tune And Out
With only a ten minute commute to work, I do not really listen to the radio in the car for a long time. That kind of sucks because every song sounds better in the car. But for those with a long journey, a new EZ900HDS receiver from Kenwood will be a great investment. This new receiver is a step in the technology that has three different tuners in one. It can take AM / FM stations, HD Radio and Sirius Satellite radio, which means that there is a lot of music to listen. Forget the CD, you do not really need them if you subscribe to Sirius Satellite Radio, and with sharp, clear reception you get with HD radio, personally I think a lot of radio songs that go will make you forget what it's like groping through CD. Now, if only I worked about an hour away.

Tuning Is Everything
When modifying the engine, one of the most important factor in getting the most out of your modifications are tuning. AEM introduces the Engine Management System (EMS) for the latest Honda engine line-up. This new plug and play system available for all '01-04 K-series engines (including Element, TSX, and Accord) and '01-04 D17A1 engine and manual transmission A2.

Now those newer Honda to join in the fun by tuning tuning AEM products offered.

Is Your Car Swing Both Ways?
Want another modification that will make fans Lambo-style door and maybe even some owners of Lamborghini jealous? Showoff Inc. is proud to present WingDoors Mark I, 90-degree vertical door conversion kit. This kit features a hinge that makes the door open farther than other kits on the market and also provides easy installation. This kit will make the door open far enough to allow you to fit a refrigerator or even mother-in-law in a small car. Are the types of items will fit in the car when the door closed is another story. With this kit, your car will be the talk of the town, making people runny Lamborghini drivers to give your car a second look.

Back in Black
Complete a cool, dark look of your interior with the HKS EVC Black Limited. Basically the same thing as before EVC kPa Ver. 2, but it looks cooler. Main, and possibly only, difference is that it has a black foreground and white background screen, as opposed to black foreground and white background on previous units. Now, not only would be cool because you drive a turbo car, but you will have to follow the controller increases the coolness factor as well.

Cool Fuel
I personally have never heard the fuel pump is dying out or breaking, but I'm sure it's possible. Besides, to prevent this from happening, or at least to prolong your life fuel pumps, BG has released a "heat sink." The heat sink is a nice little device that you put in the loop with the fuel pump and in turn cool the fuel that goes into your machine. And We all know, the cooler your water, oil, and now fuel is, the better your engine will of the run.

New Toyota Sienna 2011

The New Toyota Sienna was redesigned for 2011, and observers agree that the minivan is much better than before. No longer stuck behind the Honda Odyssey, the new Sienna took a former class leader in the dynamics and comfort, while the loss of soft style that marked previous Sienna. Most reviewers say that Sienna 2011 is the best minivan on the market.

The first change most will notice in 2011 Sienna is revised exterior. Muscular and beautiful, the new Sienna implant design style to a segment that is marked by anonymity. Car and Driver echoes feelings of most reviewers, saying, "We can go so far as to call the search Sienna minivan is still there-the best." Stepping in the 2011 Sienna reveals an all-new interior as well. While reviewers criticized some of the materials, most agree that both are designed with intuitively placed controls.

Starting from $ 24,260, the base Sienna is equipped with tri-zone air conditioning, power windows and door locks, seven airbags, cruise control, LED taillights and alloy wheels. The base Sienna minivan is one of the least expensive, but Dodge and Kia also offers a minivan with a starting price similar. Although the Sienna can be extremely expensive when fully charged, most of the models is a strong value for the class.

While the review comments on the slow acceleration of the base-liter four-cylinder 2.7-new engine, some argue it is quite adequate in most driving situations. The optional 3.5-liter V6 receives high praise for, a strong and subtle nature of fuel efficiency (four-cylinder Siennas is EPA-rated at 19/24, while the V6 models are rated at 18/24). The Sienna also stands as the only minivan on the market to offer all-wheel drive is optional.

New for 2011 is the sporty SE model. Reviewer says SE oxymoron that works. It's only available in front-wheel drive with V6 power, and observers expressed great pleasure in returning the steering wheel and suspension setup - though looks sporty which may not be for everyone.

Other minivan to Consider
Despite the fact that General Motors and Ford have abandoned the minivan market that supports the crossover, the Sienna still face high competition. The biggest competitor is the Honda Odyssey. Although the consensus among reviewers that the new Sienna minivan is king, 's perch Toyota will be challenged next year when it releases redesigned Honda Odyssey. Reviewers generally supports the driving characteristics of the Odyssey of the Sienna, commented that only the sporty SE Sienna can compete with the Odyssey to road manners.

Dynamic short fall compared with Sienna and Odyssey, the Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan is a feasible alternative to current efforts Toyota minivan. Although Chrysler and Dodge have interior material is worse than Sienna, they offer more storage space, including underfloor storage in the second row. This storage can also house a second row stowable seats - something to consider if you regularly transport large items.

Those who seek to examine the value of the Kia Sedona, which starts at about $ 2,000 less than the Sienna and equipped with standard V6 power. However, buyers should know it also rides on a wheelbase 5.5 inches shorter than the Sienna - which means offering less interior room. If you need more space, you can buy Sedona LX models, which ride on the same wheelbase size Sienna - but also started at almost the same price with the Sienna, so it will not save money.

While Sienna Toyota was not involved in the accelerator pedal recall, some critics have begun to raise questions about the quality Toyota. For its part, Toyota says remains committed to quality and safety. Toyota has set an override brake system in 2011 Sienna, the bypass valve when the brake pedal is pressed.

Chevrolet Blazer

In 1991, Alex Hardy, 37, was driving through a 1987 Chevrolet Blazer White Hall, Alabama Blazer was damaged when the rear axle, the wheel right to free assembly and sent the vehicle into a roll. When the door opened, Hardy was thrown 30-40 feet in the air and suffered serious injuries that made him permanently paralyzed.

Lawyers who represent Hardy filed a lawsuit against General Motors. They alleged that the defective door latch Blazer's injury contributed to Hardy, and that the Blazers GM intentionally sold with defective door latches that opened in an accident like that is owned by Hardy.

GM denied the accusations, arguing that Hardy should be blamed because she had been drinking and fell asleep when his Blazer rolled over. Witnesses to testify that GM Hardy flew through the window because he was not wearing a seat belt.

GM asserted that "their Type 3" bolt the door of a safe and meets federal safety standards. They further stated that the level of side-door ejections from vehicles involved in fatal accidents was 0.77 per 100 inhabitants. Finally, GM's experts testified that the door latch Hardy was only slightly damaged, shows that it does not come open during the accident as he believes.

"Once again, a giant car trying to avoid the facts to obscure the issue," said the lawyer, a nationally recognized auto defects, John Bisnar. "Internal documents-including GM's 1982 study estimated that such hooks could fail about 18,000 times a year-damaged properties underscores GM's third type of door latch This latch has been installed in about 40 million GM vehicles starting in 1978.

A version featuring dishes support only installed on some 1987 models Unfortunately, GM chose not to spend around 916 million U.S. dollars needed to replace all latches .. It chose instead to issue a 'quiet mind' where the dealer was ordered to replace the bolt without notifying their customers. Unfortunately, there were still about 30 million vehicles on the road which is equipped with a hook. "

An Alabama jury awarded $ 50 million in compensation to Mr. Hardy and his family and $ 100 million compensation to the producers for what the jury determined was "guilty knowledge of GM's" of the handicapped slot. This is one of the largest verdict against GM.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began an investigation into what GM knew about the defect clearly on the door latch. A former administrator of the Federal agents say often took aggressive civil litigation like the Hardy's to dig up evidence and documents that otherwise hidden from federal regulators.

"This decision reveals the fact that GM has known for at least 14 years reprehensible that the U.S. would be hurt and killed by a poorly designed door latch, the part that has failed in the accident after the accident," said Brian Chase from a national auto defect law firm Bisnar recognized Chase. "Actions Mr Hardy in taking GM to court is an example of our justice system at work the jury award for GM-American messages in this case, big enough message that their failure to act was not accepted .. Hopefully, this lawsuit will help convince car makers to respond effectively to safety defects known to prevent further injury to its customers. "
