1999 Oldsmobile Aurora 4dr Sedan


Aurora's are nice..but be very careful when buying one. Northstar engine is notorious for having leaky head gaskets at the back of the engine. they have a GREAT deal of power..but if you ask me, the heads were not designed to take the power. Interior was great. Options were wonderful. Has 174000 miles on it and all the bearings needed replaced at the same time! thermostat is $51!~ Tires are hard to find and expensive! Parts are very expensive..and they hold no resale value cause Oldsmobile is closed and the Northstar has a bad rep. I drove five of these before I found mine.

Best Features

Interior had lots of gadgets! Like a cockpit of the space shuttle! It was so fun to drive!

Worst Features

Replace front struts with shocks. Put diff engine in it.
