Nightmare vehicle

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Oldsmobile Ciera

I must be the only one to negatively comment on this car but it has not served us well. We had to repair the alternator, engine, ignition, transmission and replace the batterys 3 times turn signals 2 times and coolent compartment 1 time. It only had about 65k miles on it which is bad since this is a total figure. I could see the metal bars behind the seat cloth, the radio sounded bad even with good signal, and I could look down at the road through the rear passenger door. I even nicknamed it the Christmas car because when it did run the engine sounded like jingle bells.

Reliable after all these years

Vehicle: 1995 Oldsmobile Ciera

This car was a dealership demo when my elderly parents bought it. It fell into my hands upon the death of my dad and mom could no longer drive. As of 11/2007 it only has 46,000 miles on it. I have been driving it for a year and the only problem has been the alternator and now it needs new struts. I am selling it only because it is a very boring car but it is still very reliable and solid. I don't have any complaints about it other than that. If you can find one with low miles at this age, it should hold up fine.




198,000 and still running strong!

Vehicle: 1995 Oldsmobile Ciera

I am an auto mechanic and most cars at 198,000 miles are pretty turdish. Being a Wisconsin car it does have minor rust but my friends always comment that the car rides really nice. I purchased the car from one of my friends (another mechanic) for $900 a little over a year ago at 173,000 miles and the car has never let me down. I have another friend that finally junked one of these at 260,000 miles.




Great midsize choice

Vehicle: 1995 Oldsmobile Ciera

I just bought this car a little over a month ago after I totalled my Escort. It has the 3.1 V6 engine, 4-speed auto transmission, and 107,000 miles. So far all I had to do was put on two new tires and fix a trans line leak. It's going to need a power steering pump and a new starter soon, but those are just minor items to replace on an 11 year old car. The engine is quite powerful even though the looks don't suggest it. I also get around 25-27 MPG so it's decent on gas for a midsize. I wish the car didn't have the granny suspension so it would be better on windy roads and wouldn't float as much.




Still going strong

by on
Vehicle: 1995 Oldsmobile Ciera

My 1995 Oldsmobile Ciera had 36,000 miles on it when I acquired it, and at 63,000 miles, three years later it is still going strong. It has required only normal maintenance. I am experiencing some minor electrical problems as things like the power window motors wear out. While not a "cool" car for a teenager or college student to have, it has been very reliable. The roomy trunk and back seat have moved my posessions from home to dorm room and back again many times now without my parents having to bring anything else in their car. I'm not overly impressed with the quality of the radio/sound system, though. Its gas mileage is usually in mid-to-upper 20s, I occasionally gets 30 mpg.
