This is an excellent car for the money. Extremely reliable, awesome power great mileage. Long road trips are a breeze. Very pleasant ride, a bit soft when packed with luggage or passengers, easily bottoms out. Perfect as a commuter. Everything is easily accessible in the engine compartment, BIG plus!!

Where to begin...my parent bought the car in 1992 and gave it to me when I got my license at 96,000 miles. I have been driving it ever since. Now, at 211,000 miles, after 3-4 hail storms (the largest with hail the size of baseballs) and storm chasing, a deer running into me, this car just impresses everyone that has experienced it with me. The 3300 V6 and 3-speed auto transmission have given me surprising fuel economy as high as 31 mpg, and once with 18 during cold, city driving winters. I consistently get 25 mpg in a mix driving. I replaced exhaust, water pump, heater core, harmonic balancer all because of age, not defects. I have religiously performed basic maintenance and wear items were replaced. I need new window motors, but I can't complain for what it has done for me.

I know no one cares about this 15 year old car, but I own it . So far I;ve put 300,00 miles on my 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera with NO major problems. OK, the struts go out annually, it has an exhaust manifold leak, I replaced a radiator, power window motor, water pump (twice), alternator, stereo, and a few windshields. So what. The car fires up in -20 temps., gets over 26 mpg., and WORKS! The 3.3L V-6 engine w/4-speed OD tranny has to be one of the best combo's ever! This car is truly outstanding!

Purchased at 100,000 miles. Had been
well used, but maintained. Service
engine light on, local GM dealer unable
to provide a reasonable cost estimate.
Rear brakes binding to drum, no holes
in backing plate to loosen the shoes,
needed to rip drum off of car, added to
cost of repair. Driver's seat springs
broken, have had other vehicle in
excess of 200,000 without this problem.
Power window wires all broken at
bellows on L/F door. Common problem
with GM cars. Expensive repair ($200).

I have had the car for 1 year and 8
months now. I bought it with 80,000
miles on it in January of 2002. It
currently has more than 112,500 miles
and is still running in great order.
It is more reliable than any other car
I have owned(a 1993 Ford Taurus and a
1993 Dodge Shadow). I'd also recommend
it over the Camry and Accord(I have
friends with both of those cars and
they have not been as satisfied as they
hoped they would be).
