1997 Oldsmobile Achieva SL 4dr Sedan

Review

This car handles great, tight turning, and great accelleration. I had the 2.4L engine, it had 69k on it when i bought it, and the water pump goes out at about 70k miles on almost all 2.4l's. also, the ETS off and the check engine lights only come on when it's hot outside, they turn off in the winter, it's a confessed mistake by GM. Though there is nothing wrong with the ETS or engine, the lights do come on for no reason at times.

Favorite Features

ABS, Day time running lights, Power Windows, and the car looks funny without the spoiler, if it don't have a spoiler... don't buy it... lol

Suggested Improvements

Water pump is hard to get to and requires dis-assembly of almost the entire engine and is a very costly repair job
