1993 Oldsmobile Achieva SL 4dr Sedan


Review

I used this car all through college and it was wonderful. Great engine and power, loved the driver-oriented dash and all of the gauges. Plenty of room front and back and lots of features for a "compact" car. I had to replace the alternator (a common GM problem), the variable-effort steering rack, and the paint began to peel in odd ways - but for sitting outside and getting lots of use, I couldn't really complain.


Best Features

Interior design. Excellent power with the 3300 V6. Absolutely love all of the gauges, the traditional Olds styling, and all of the "comfort" options that most cars didn't come with at this time.

1993 Oldsmobile Achieva S 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car new in 1993 and over
the years I have had to put over
$5000.00 in repairs. I am getting rid
of the car because it needs another
head-gasket, that right another! The
first one went in around 60k and now
with 114k it needs another. Buy any
other car, surely it can't be worse.

1993 Oldsmobile Achieva SL 2dr Coupe


Review

This car has been used to run around
town/work primarily. Has been oaky
for the most part but has seen its
share of days in the shop. Currently
it has a cracked head which was also
worked on about two years ago.

The "check gages" light has frequently
come on for no reason- several
mechanics have attempted to locate
problem, but without success


Best Features

Good exterior design, fair gas mileage


Worst Features

Change the engine- does not seem to be durable.

Review

Quad 4 has a bad reputation but I've
had good luck with mine accept for a
seep leak in a cracked cylinder head
which I've ignored for 50 000 miles.
The car has 137000 and still runs and
looks great.


Best Features

great fuel mileage for this size car.


Worst Features

Quad 4 has a bad reputation
