Great car
By Matt00002 on


1997 Oldsmobile Achieva SL 4dr Sedan


This car handles great, tight turning,
and great accelleration. I had the
2.4L engine, it had 69k on it when i
bought it, and the water pump goes out
at about 70k miles on almost all
2.4l's. also, the ETS off and the
check engine lights only come on when
it's hot outside, they turn off in the
winter, it's a confessed mistake by
GM. Though there is nothing wrong with
the ETS or engine, the lights do come
on for no reason at times.

Best Features

ABS, Day time running lights, Power Windows, and the car looks funny without the spoiler, if it don't have a spoiler... don't buy it... lol

Worst Features

Water pump is hard to get to and requires dis-assembly of almost the entire engine and is a very costly repair job
