Terrible

1997 Oldsmobile Achieva SL 4dr Sedan

Review

The ABS light is always on along with the CHECK ENGINGE light and the ETS OFF light. This is a pain and will not ever go off. The engine has very little power and not worth it. The car also has a tendency to stall out on me. It would stall and then take at least 5 minutes of pumping the gas and turning the key. This is not what I want in a car.

Review

This was my grandfathers car, now my moms car and I drive it often, so I am very familiar with the car. First of all, it is a good little car. It already has 118K on it. The ride is very smooth for a small car. The safety features are big pluses. The dislikes is the "check engine light", as well as the "ETS off" lights are illuminating at times. Repair shop said oxygen sensor, but cannot figure out what that has to do with the traction control. They are either both on or off, which seems like they are linked. Also, when first started when engine is warm, there is a rattling sound, that does go away after a minute.

Great car for daily commuting

This is an economical car to run, reliable, easy to handle and park. Not too small like a sub-compact, but not too big for city driving. Plain look inside and outside, but comfortable. Never had a problem mechanically for four years. Highly recommended.

Next best thing to a BMW

Review

This is one of the most comfortable small American cars I have ever driven. The drivers seat has a tilting base and the seatback has a lumbar adjustment as well as tilting. For a 6'5" driver to get comfortable in this small of a car is wonderful. I could drive this car across the country with no problem. The suspension is very supple yet responsive. After driving it for a week it reminded me of a BMW I owned back in the early 80's. This car is actually fun to drive. The "Quad 4" engine is smooth, powerful and it gets great gas mileage. This is a superior vehicle that represents truly great value.
