1999 Oldsmobile Aurora 4dr Sedan
I bought this car when it was 4 years old with 9,000 miles. I have since driven it up to 75,000 with only one major problem ($900), and I'm pretty sure it would have been a cheaper fix had I not been in a strange town. Overall the car has been superb. I have friends who have the newer style, but honestly they just don't compare. If I can ever find another deal (low mileage, old body style) again, I'll do it! The powerful V8, smooth handling, and sleek look make it a very enjoyable ride. As typical with American cars resale is horrible, which is why I would never buy one new (I paid $12,500...sticker was $37,000). I don't receommend many American cars, but this one is a winner!
250hp V8, heated seats work excellent, excellent HVAC system, great stereo, excellent gas mileage for a vehicle of its size.
Get away from premium fuel requirement. Tends turn burn a little bit of oil (dealership says this is normal for this motor). I would've preferred RWD, but FWD was great in snow.
