bought my 1993 Olds Cutlass Supreme S for 800 dollars back in February due to my other car having a seized engine, put in maybe 500 dollars into a new battery and tires and some sensors and runs almost like new. couldn't beat the value. have been using it to drive to work daily since May and at 136k miles runs quiet and like a cadillac.
comfortable ride, seating is pretty comfortable, plenty of space, easy to work on, parts are rather affordable.
1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme International 2dr Coupe
I've owned a good number of cars and by a large margin this is one of the best so far (only better was the Audi). Bought in 2000 with 40,000 miles on it, my odometer just turned over 110,000 miles (as of 8/2010) and I've had few issues short of cosmetic stuff (dash warp, minor rust, etc.) Basic parts are cheap and easy to find. Design is very solid, maybe a bit too sparse on the interior, for some people. Even with the full options package it doesn't look as fancy as the other Olds models. The ride, however, is through and through a Cutlass Supreme. Nice gliding feel like a heavier car but handles sportier than previous years. This is one car that I will drive until the wheels fall off.
Perky 3.4L DOHC V-6; that can be modified to use the supercharger off a mid-90's Buick Regal (pictures on request). Full options package on the Int'l Series is like driving a Cadillac. Trunk space is huge for this type of car. (5'x 5'x 3') Imitation Shaved door handles! (pain to replace)
The only grief I have is the huge V-6 is jammed into a space made for a 4 cyl. making for some banged knuckles. Rear wheel drive would have made this a real sports car. At 100k miles the timing belts MUST be replaced ($1500 and has to be done at the dealership or the engine could lock up, DOHC only)
1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme International 4dr Sedan
I just bought this car for $500 while it was at the young age of 16 and having 200,000 miles. :) I was super impressed when I first drove it, everything was really smooth, especially for it's age. Not long owning it, both front ball joints went out, and I think the the struts might be done too. But everything inside the car it great. The AC and the Heat works well, all the gauges and lights are fine. Basically, when the car you are looking at is a 93, make sure that there is nothing or little wrong with it, otherwise you'll be paying alot more than it's worth to fix. ALSO, when I was in Grand Rapids, MI, I swear I saw about 50 of these cars in a few hours, must be a good sign!
The dark red interior! Hot!!! but really, it's quite dependable overall.
I loved this car from the day it was introduced. I wanted this car the first time I saw it as it was the Pace Car for The Indy 500 that year. i did rebuild the entire fuel system 2 months after purchase as I was unsure of its condition. Since then it has been a very reliable and fun car to drive. I drove it to Florida (I live in Indiana) and this be hard to believe but I averaged almost 40mpg. The designers at Olds knew what they were doing. So, if you are an owner of one of these gems, hang onto it. It will be considered an antique in 3 years and since Olds has been phased out, not only will they retain their value but they will also been a sought after vehicle.
All-over good looks, suspension and great acceleration.
Car has 150,000 miles but runs so smooth on the highway at speeds of around 95. Has great power drives like a boat at times, bumps feel like going waves. Love to drive it though, brakes are the biggest problem. Spacious 2 door, 3 people fit comfortably in the back and trunk space is big.
Drives smooth on the highway. Interior space and the look people give you when they see the car.
