I've had this car for four years. I purchased it used at 30,000 miles and now it has 70,000 miles. It has had no problems thus far. It has great pick-up, with stable handling thanks to its wide tires.
I love how it gets 30 MPG+ on the highway - not bad for a V-6! It has great pick-up and a solid ride.
Not that it matters anymore since Olds aren't made, but they could have done away with the variable assist steering feature as it doesn't add anything to the performance and only adds a sometimes annoying rattle when turning.
