I was excited when this car came out because it had a lot of nice features on it. I had it for 10 years and was satisfied for most of the time. The big complaint I have is that the head gasket went at 80,000 miles and it would have cost more to fix than the car was worth at that time. I enjoyed driving it and would have kept it a lot longer but it was cost prohibitive. For my next car I went with a 2007 Hyundai Sonata which I still have and am very satisfied with.

I bought the car used in 2005. Great ride, very comfortable. But, the intake manifold has been a huge problem. GM should have spent a little more time on making quality not quantity. Great car with a lot of potential. But, it is in the shop constantly.

My 3rd cousin sells it to me at 114k miles, up to 150k miles. Since I bought this car for my wife's birthday, she was very happy with the car. Once I drove this it was very good, smooth ride, great handling, compared to Honda Accord. Once made a trip from New york to Georgia, with car filled with suitcases, boxes, gas mileage was very awesome, got 35 mpg with cruise control. Power was great. Need improvement quality of leather. Seats cracking and back seat comes apart.
Oldsmobile retires the Ciera and introduces the Cutlass, based on the same platform as Chevy's new Malibu. Cutlass is more upscale that its Chevrolet counterpart, offering a slightly more powerful V6 engine on all models, and a sunroof option, standard leather interior and larger wheels on the GLS.
