2002 Oldsmobile Aurora Sedan 4.0 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I like this car a lot the style is great the interior is top notch. I think the best thing is I got mine with the v8 which is believe it or not is rather good on gas I average 23 mpg that is better than my Taurus when running only did 18 mpg now it does 0. I should have purchased this car along time ago. I am done with v6 motors I have had no luck with them .


Best Features

V8 has a lot of get up a go. I also love the cockpit style, the way it is designed reminds me of my 94 t- bird


Worst Features

GM never should have closed oldsmobile down. The V8 should had been a true northstar 4.6 L

Review

An excellent car to drive and with the interior extras very comfortable for long distance trips. The vehicle was purchased used with 43,000 miles and after 10,000 miles the only trouble so far will be to replace the original rear shocks which are rather pricey due to computer linkage. Plenty of power and for a V-8 on the open highway I can get 25 miles to the gallon.


Best Features

Comfortable leather seats. Great air conditioning system with the extras to control the temperature via a thermostat.

Review

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.


Best Features

The comfortable lumber support/heated seats. The DIC gives assurance of the cars driving capabilities/tire pressure/low fluid indicator etc. Great sound system & faces the driver, front & side air bags, dual climate control, OnStar, traction control, anti-skid control, no outside noise/wind


Worst Features

Ablity to lower the back seat or have a bigger hole though it to carry long/bigger objects.

Review

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


Best Features

Looks and comfort


Worst Features

Put parts on that will last more than a few thousand miles fix the poor design of the air pump improve fuel economy

Review

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.


Best Features

Comfort, low operating cost/value, style, secure feeling (FWD, ABS, stability & traction control, and side airbags), heated seats.


Worst Features

Resume production! Add a 6 speed transmission.
