My 1996 Cutlass Supreme SL is the reason Oldsmobile went under.
The stereo quit after 6 months - was replaced under warranty with what turned out to be a "refurbished" unit - tape deck quit right after the warranty ran out.
Head gasket blew at 49,000 miles.
Intake gasket went at 56,000 miles - found out the intake was cracked when I was replacing the gasket.
Tranny died at 100,000 miles.
I'm honestly afraid to drive this car more than walking distance from my house - and don't.
I drove a 1975 Cutlass I inherited from Virginia last summer - I'm restoring it to replace my 1996...I felt safer driving the 1975 than I do my '96.

when i first got my car i had a lot of
things go wrong with it, but now
everything is working perfectly. i love
the way it handels, but i think that
2nd gear is set at to low of a ratio.
mine is a 96 with a 3.1. but i have
managed to get it up to around 200hp. i
also love the 5 spoke wheels that came
with it. im going to get some 17's or
18's in the near future. screw a system
this car already sounds awsome with out

This Car still gets glances for its
modern styling. Many people do not know
what kind of car it is and think it is
a foreign sporty car.
Often people can't get in because the
door knobs are not in the normal place.
Also, due to its styling it appears
smaller than it really is.

I purchased my second Cutlass Supreme
last spring and wouldn't choose
anything else. I have had squeaky
brakes that the mechanic blames on GM
for having a bad break year, and I had
a leak in my back window that cost a
few bucks, but all in all the engine is
solid, handles great, and I already
have my dad asking to buy it when I'm
ready for something else. Dream on
dad.. it is mine!!

I purchased this vehicle with 42,000
miles and after almost 4 years, this
has been the best car I have ever
owned. I have owned 22 cars in the past
35 years and yes, this is the longest I
have kept one. I love the ride, the
handling is like a sport car, also
great on those long trips. The cup
holder is situated at the absolute
right place. I have driven this to
105,000 with no repairs other than
tires, brakes, and headlights. The car
burns no oil, is as tight as the day I
bought it. I just gave it to my 20
year old son who thinks this car is
cool. I would buy another in a minute
and I wish GM still made them.
