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.
