1996 Oldsmobile Ciera SL 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car brand new in '96 with the 4-cyl. engine. It has never stranded us though it has had some major problems. They include eating three head gaskets and bad rusting near the trunk/rear end. There are two baseball sized holes at each rear wheel well into the trunk. and while it has not been a real problem, the fuel pump whirrs loudly, enough for the passengers to always ask "whats that sound?". Otherwise it has a great ride and comfortable seats, which makes up for the lackluster acceleration and performance. This car has developed more and more rattles and squeaks from the dash. I guess it's not TOO bad for an American car with high mileage and not garaged for its whole life.

Best Features

The HVAC system is strong, it has a smooth ride, comfortable seats, and it is quiet.

Worst Features

Give it more horepower, the 4-cyl. engine is SERIOUSLY underpowered. Also, it needs better rust protection for the long run.
