My last gm car after

Vehicle: 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass

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.

Great car, few troubles

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.

Good car excellent handling!

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.

Nothing like it

Vehicle: 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass

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.
