1998 Oldsmobile Achieva SL 4dr Sedan


Review

Replaced suspension 3 times, gone through 4 alternators, 3 batteries, electrical problems, etc. This car doesn't handle as well as most trucks and suvs, and gets about the same gas mileage. The traction control is a joke, and the abs is constantly making noises when I'm not even braking. Save yourself alot of time and money and stay away from one of these, unless you want to buy mine!


Favorite Features

trunk, safety


Suggested Improvements

everything-brakes, suspension, engine, transmission, you name it, this car has a poor rendition of it.
