2001 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0 4dr Sedan (4.0L 8cyl 4A)


Bought used over three years ago. All repairs (zero strandings and little inconvenience) have included window regulator (free under 60k mi warranty,) cam sensor - light (free again,) water pump (housing developed small leak which after several thousand miles had done for $200,) power steering pump (also a minor problem done at our convenience for $200.) A timing belt change on an economy car would have cost more than what we have spent in 70,000 miles of use. The only complaint I would give is the magnasteer unit which occasionally gave incorrect drag during high speed turns. I disconnected the magnet/rack (free and took two minutes) and now have generally perfect steering.

Best Features

Safe, quiet, comfortable, fast, decent economy, super cheap to buy

Worst Features

Magnasteer needs improvement and this was addressed in later models with the same type of steering, could use a turbo on the V8, nice power, but could use more off the line, highway power is perfect
