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 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

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.

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 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.

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!
