My Last GM car after after 6 Oldsmobiles

1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass GLS 4dr Sedan

Review

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.

Olds Cutlass

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.

Review

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.

Review

I got my Oldsmobile Cutlass from a friend. I had to get it because of my new baby. When I first drove it, the handling was solid. It had senstive steering, good power. I'm not sure what the fuel ecomony is like yet. When I got it the check engine lightwas on. Two thousand miles later, after losing coolant, I had it fixed with a new waterpump and cap. I talked to dealer, this is a common problem with this car is intake gasket leaking, dealer reapirs once only $700, one time but if you have own mechanic will cost less, otherwise it is a great, reliable car. It has a smooth ride with new tires.

Review

Bought car used with 60000 miles, put another 27000 on before totalling in an accident. Body cage does its job, as I wasn't injured at all when car was totalled. Never had the car in the shop except for regular oil changes. This car was very reliable! Standard 3.1L V6 provides a lot of power for a car this size; acceleration and passing are a breeze. I'm so mad that someone hit me and totalled the car, as it is impossible to find another Cutlass GLS loaded for the $$ insurance will give me. No one wants to sell theirs it seems. The Cutlass and Chevy Malibu twin are a great value for the money in the midsize class.

This car called out to me like a siren. I was looking for another Prizm Lsi but got no further than this. It offered everything at the expense of nothing.Performance did not disappoint. If it did not perform at least as well as my Geo I was not going to give it another second of thought. It blew the Prizm out of the water.

This Isn't your daddy's Olds

Review

Great car, well worth the selling price. The 3.1 v6(160 hp at the wheels) is silky smooth begging you to take a visit to the redline. Cornering is very precise. There is a little body roll in hard cornering, a small price to pay for the excellent ride quality(even up over 100 mph).The transaxle shifts quickly and transparently.The car accelerates to 60 in 8.5 second, 8.0 with performance tires. All while averaging about 23-25 mpg in mixed driving(with a heavy foot). The interior quality is excellent overall but the radio bezel looks a bit cheap. On the other hand you won't find leather more comfortable on anything less than 40K.

My last GM car for awhile!

Review

During the first 2 years of ownership I rarely had to wash the car because it was back for repairs so often, that the dealer kept it clean. After replacing struts, rack and pinion, power steering pump, disc brake rotors, plus many other ongoing problem; I am now looking forward to replacing this very undesirable car.
