1995 Oldsmobile Achieva Sedan S 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had this car for 9 months and i put 25,000 miles on it. Until now the only thing i replaced was the altenator, but now at 102,000 miles the bearing went and the engine is shot no one will rebuild them cause every mechanic I went to said there just a Pain in the ass. I new engine from GM would cost me $3200, I only paid $2600 for it. When it ran I liked it great gas milage for all the power it had. If you lookin at one i think ya should go with the 3.1


Best Features

Good Power, great fuel econemy


Worst Features

2.3 Quad Fours should not be used i've heard from many people that there a pain. Like everybody else thinks I think the interior is kinda cheap

Review

I have the Achieva 3.1L 6cyl. It's a fine car--always starts, always runs, strong engine. Handles quite well, no squeaks or rattles at 123,000 miles. No rust at all and paint quality is fantastic. Exhaust has lasted over 60k miles too! Easily equal to an Accord of the same vintage. My car drinks coolant faster than a Green Bay Packer guzzles gatorade--I can't find the leak, probably the water pump, no big deal.


Best Features

Superb paint quality, strong engine, super economy, nice smooth tranny. Hood has gas struts, no prop bar needed.


Worst Features

Front seats too soft, lack any side support. Inner door panels a bit cheap. Low beams not bright enough. I'm not crazy about the door-mounted seat belts.

Review

I had my car for only one year and at first I was pretty satisfied with it. The car picked up quickly, especially when I needed to drive through pesky freeway traffic. But, now I am having engine and radiator problems. The mechanic told me that antifreeze is leaking internally and mixing with my engine oil so now I am forced to either donate my car or junk it.


Best Features

The car is reliable. Even when my car would over heat, it would never break down on me. I had plenty of time to drive to a safe place and park.


Worst Features

My car was involved in a minor traffic accident and the women was driving 5mph. and ripped my whole front end components off and ruined my hood.
