I have owned three Cutlasses ('68, '71 and '80), an Alero, an Aurora and a LSS 88 and this has been my favorite Olds. Right now I have 175K on the original motor and tranny and can still pull 100+ mph speeds on closed track. Reliability has been excellent. Repairs have all been within reasonable parameters for a car of its age and mileage. She's starting to show her age cosmetically, but still rides like a dream and runs like a rocket. Love the control placement, cabin ergonomics and handling.
3.5L V6 - can't kill it. Great sound system. Love the moon roof. Seat design and foot well are wonderful - - at 6'3" and 275#, this is important. Still runs like champ with lots of low and high end power.
Bring back the GM designers that put this together. I still can't believe that a lemon line Buick survived and Olds was put to pasture.
