1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan


Review

It all started when a girl wrecked into me and the insurance money got me a 1999 Oldsmobile Cutlass. The gypsy dealer was selling it for 3800 and i got it for 2800 with 108K. My friend's dad (also a mechanic) warned me about this car being a lemon but i didn't believe him and it was a bad choice on me. In order...brakes, tires, pulley tensioner, water pump, head gasket, spark plugs and wires 2x, alternator, and now the A/C has gone out. I've spent 3G's on the car and it doesn't even include the $1,500 rims, new headlights, complete stereo system. Im at 125K and im afraid of more things going wrong and I'm only 18 going to college! Stay away from this car!!!

Review

Had this car for 12 years -- getting a new one because now have children and I had the bare bones version of this with no LATCH, auto windows, etc. I kept up with maintenance, and over the years did replace intake manifold (per GM service note), a couple of batteries, and an alternator (it had been left undriven for three months), water pump, and AC controls. Most of these have been in the last couple of years, which makes sense once the car hits ten years old. Car was very good about warning lights -- most times warning came early enough to get it to a shop and I was never stranded.


Favorite Features

Powerful engine -- excellent at going from stopped to highway speed. Huge trunk. No rust.

Review

I bought this car from the original owner back in June. It already had 172,000+ on the odometer. The car was having trouble with water pouring into the crank case. Turned out the water passages in the lower intake manifold had blown. Was able to get both intake gaskets and valve cover gaskets for only $50. Plus went ahead and put a new timing chain and cam and crank gears just to further its life. Of course with a new timing chain cover gasket, I spent under $120 on parts and the car runs amazing. There does seem to be some rotor wear but not too major. My gas mileage is more like 30 highway, 21 with the AC on and about 22 in town travel. It's extremely reliable which is important to anyone


Favorite Features

Fuel economy, handling, stereo, and interior room that I can finally get my wheelchair in the backseat by myself when I'm driving solo.


Suggested Improvements

An intake gasket not made out of plastic and more under the hood room above the firewall to make changing the spark plugs and rear valve cover easier. Also, a transmission dipstick so the driver could check his transmission fluid level without going to the dealership to pay for it to be done.

Review

I've treated this car like absolute garbage since I bought it at 40,000 miles, all I've done is a 5000 mile oil change and change the tires. Some cheap parts on the interior and the passenger side window doesn't work all the time when it gets hot, other than that, I need to give a tune-up soon so it wil go another 108,000 miles


Favorite Features

reliability, everyone complaining just got a lemon


Suggested Improvements

better interior to match the comfort of knowing my car will run FOREVER

Review

Not all of the problems with this car have been with the car. Mechanics have had a hand in it. Excellent winter car performance wise. Rust after 9 years just beginning to show through. Performance comparable with the BMW and Saab that I have driven. 3.5 like a small v-8. Wife was hell on the front end. Nice size for Christmas shopping. Smiles


Favorite Features

Performance. Good power. Not a hot rod. Handling on curves and winter


Suggested Improvements

comfort
