I bought this car in April of 2006 to replace my 98 Chrysler Town & Country van which had been totaled. I needed a winter (front wheel drive) vehicle as my other vehicle is a 2WD Ranger which is no good in winter weather. This Olds was traded on a new Cadillac. It was a one owner vehicle with 55,300 miles on it and a new set of tires. Although not my fantasy car, I paid what I considered top $ for it @ $5,995. No problems with it until around 88K miles when I replaced the belt tensioner and belt. Also recent heater problems cost $138. Replaced tires @ 90,000. Normal tune up/transmission service. Its been very dependable and a gas sipper at 25MPG ave. I hope to keep it forever.
