Vehicle: 1997 Oldsmobile Aurora

A great car have had since new,16years and 121,000 miles, nice style, power, good ride. No major issues, except leaks oil, minor trim issues with rubber seal around trunk, mirror comes loose and costs ~$600 to change plugs/wires. Had A/c compressor changed 3 times ( no charge, life time warranty)

Love the nana car

I bought my Aurora a year ago at an auction, I am only the second owner and it had 90,000 miles on it when I bought it. We were not in Modesto on preview day, so did not even know if it ran, but it was in such pristine condition and had such low mileage I took a chance. I paid $3000 for her, and she started right up and i have been in love ever since. This car looks as good as it did the day it left the showroom and while the in-town mileage is not very high, on the highway she gets between 27-34 mpg. My son the mechanic says with the low mileage I put on it and timely maintenance it should last me many years.

I miss my aurora!

I love this car however I don't have it anymore,but given the chance again I would go back to a V8 Aurora any given day. This car had every thing and It satisfied my need for 'power' and speed' performance was good enough for me.The 250 hp is great I have raced other cars who just thought this was an ole man car? oh man they were surprised. this is the only V8 car that I would purchase used again and again. pure American horsepower. i'm going to get another one really soon.

I love her

I do love my car. She drives like a dream, she has all the little extras I wanted. I am 2nd owner & have had for nearly 10 yrs. Yes I have had to have some repairs and they were costly but to me worth it. ^The only problem Ive had is the radio/cd/cassette. I have purchased 2 new ones and both times the cassette has went out. And ever since I've had my girl she about every 3 to 4 wks I have to put 2 qts. of oil in. She doesn't leak oil or smoke. But it goes somewhere. Also the paint has flaked off really bad and I have noticed this in oter same year model Aurora's. She gets average gas mileage. I think I'll keep her. She's paid for and she has been good to me. Again I love my car.

So many good things and

I bought this car when it had about 75k miles on it and drove it for a year to about 89k miles. I loved the highway acceleration and the sound of the beautiful engine and quiet comfortable interior. However the rear seal on the engine leaked oil onto the exhaust manifold just under the engine which was a serious fire hazard and after paying $3000 TWICE, the problem was not fixed. Just after that a head gasket was blown. I traded it in as soon as I could!

Reliable, at a price

Purchased used in 2002 with only 23K miles. Has been a great vehicle. Only complaints are the pricey repairs that started at about 84K, A/C, electrical problems, Oil pan seal (requires transmission removal to replace seal) MPG 19-20 City, up to 32 Hwy.
