Review

Car runs great and gets good gas mileage when everything functions properly. Cheap aftermarket parts can be a real problem. It is important with these cars to only use high quality ignition components for optimum performance. It would not be a bad idea to replace the vapor canister and EGR valve every four years or so to keep the exhaust clean clean and the car running good.


Best Features

Torque Converter Clutch

Review

i got this car at about 100k in 2000, now its up to 242k. It has been a very dependable car over the years and needs next to nothing for repairs as long as you keep up the owners manual service guide. I run it on 91/94 octane fuel and have only tired regular gas a few times, but there is a noticeable drop in acceleration and response. I have the 3300v6 3.3L


Best Features

My favorite feature is the Driver Information System


Worst Features

Best battery you can find, poor charging system. 91/94 octane fuel. Change your oil and air filter premature for best results especially in dusty areas.

Review

this vehicle was in the family for
years. Never broke down once. Did have
it's problems- ignition coils went,
went through 3 alternators. Part of
the transmission went at 90K. Other
than that, a dependable car.


Best Features

Easy access to everything in the engine. Can do a lot of the work yourself if you know how. Good mileage- up to 40 MPG on the freeway.

Review

This really was a great car to modify.
At less than 2600 lbs, this peppy
little 4 cyl took very well to speed.
Rebuilt engine, flowmaster exhaust, and
bigger stock wheels made this a very
fast and unexpected street car. Lots
of room in engine compartment for
aftermarket additions. No one expected
a car like this to race so well. This
eats hondas like popcorn. 185,xxx miles.


Best Features

Great stock air intake, no need to replace. No restrictive air box. Great throttle response. Even the automatic tranny races well.


Worst Features

Braking distance kinda sucks, especially in the rain. Also is difficult to fit a turbo to.

Review

Its been a very long time since we
bought our Oldsmomile back in 1990.
The car still runs strong. We had no
big mechanical corrections until about
a year ago. We put $800 into it, but
thats the most its every needed. The
engine for a couple years was running
on three cylinders, because of a stuck
spark plug caused by a blown gasget.
For a four cylinder this thing gets up
and moves. My father drove this car to
his work (45 miles) everyday for 10
years. This is why the car now has
183,250 miles on it and is still
running strong. We have never owned a
car that had this many miles before.
Overall my family was very glad to have
bought this car.


Best Features

180 horsepower 2.3 litre engine Ability to "kick it in" at cruising speed


Worst Features

Can't say much since Oldsmobile does not make this any more, but thats okay. Its very uncommon to see these cars on the road today, and thats why I am proud of the miles it has on it odometer.
