I'm very happy with my

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I've owned my Olds for 3 years and I have to say it's the best car I've ever had! It's very comfortable to drive, especially on 3 day road trips. I get 33mpg (highway driving). Amazing what high octane fuel and K&N air filters can do for mileage and passing power! It's very safe/stable driving on highways or in the city in all whether conditions be it be rain, ice or blizzard. I can't even tell the roads are bad it handles so well! Here in Canada we have extreme road conditions and I have no problem passing other cars/trucks (good or poor road conditions). There has been no work done to the car except regular maintenance. No breakdowns or problems. Car has 77,400 miles on it so far.




Air pump/drive shaft problems

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Air pump problems at 50,000 miles and again at 75,000. drive shaft replace around 30,000 and again around 35,000 2 electric motors on rear windows, which are rarely used front end problems around 50,000 GM has reimbursed me for some of the work, but air pump is acting up again at 80,000 poor design. I love the looks and the handling and it has so far it has not let me down on starting will I keep it? not sure at this time




What a bargain

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I bought mine as a used car and got a fantastic deal. I knew the car was underrated, but it is much better than expected. It has a real luxury car feel with solid performance. My wife considers it the equal of her Lexus ES. The understated but elegant styling, attractive and classy interior, comfort and multitude of features get many compliments. As a long distance all weather cruiser, it is hard to beat.




Low mileage driver

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

My 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora has low mileage. It is driven mostly in the city and suburbs on fairly heavily traveled roads. It is the only car I have ever had that didn't require any repairs or recalls. It performs beautifully, has good pickup and gets fairly good mileage. The ride isn't the most comfortable but it is adequate. I am very satisfied with this car.




I liked it so much

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I bought a used 2001 and liked it so much, I wanted a brand new one. The 2001 was a 4.0 and the 2002 is a 3.0. I really like the style of this car. I had a Cutlass and I really liked it, too. They made a big mistake when they got rid of the Cutlass. People ask me all the time "what kind of car is this?" It's not the best on mileage and it doesn't have the pick up that the 4.0 has. The DIC is the best and I like the radio info, also. The only thing I regret is the light color of the interior. I wish it was black. I'll keep it for a while. I don't think the resell value is the best.




Aurora is traditional

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Aurora 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Have driven my Aurora now for 18 months. Considering the price I could not be more pleased. It has been 100% reliable and very good on gas mileage, 24 mpg over all. In my eyes the styling will endure for some time. It feels solid and safe. Only wish GM could this more often and people give them a look!
