"I think if I ever sold this car be in amount of $600 because probably wouldn't have the best blue book price read reviews these cars suffer lots of major problems. I drive a 97 Achieva SL car is okay in reliability but it has suffer some mechanical issues as left me stranded out on the desert roads while vacation in Nevada with 110'F degree weather overheated and everything a mechanic kept my car for over two weeks because can't count the problems went wrong in that amount of time. It runs well being a Oldsmobile GM vehicle but will never buy another vehicle from this manufacture again after giving me the Olds BLUES had nothing but overheating problems. Thank goodness have an air condition and heater still working overall the car exterior and interior looks good being in Wisconsin weather no rust spot anywhere. I do like the car but love how it drives like a more luxury car that is it other than that be a money pit in expensive repairs so a between love hate relationship out this vehicle. Gas mileage is very good so far just needed major recalls on mechanical issues GM never recalled as didn't do with Chevy Cobalt, Saturn Sky and Pontiac G5 my next ride will be a Dodge."

"Bought this car this past year with 36,000 miles for only $3,300 - couldn't pass up the deal on a car I've always liked the look of. I love Oldsmobile, and this is a pretty good car, but I'm a little surprised at some of the uncomfortable interior materials. The seats are a little unforgiving, but not completely unbearable. The look of it is definitely distinct, one which some like and some don't. I have the V6 and get decent mileage given it's a 17 year old car. It's been reliable in spite of its age, and I hope to get at least a few years of good travel out of it."

"Not even a month after I Bought the car, the security system acted up on it. I have spent over $800.00 in the last year just on the security alone. And I still have problems with security. When it first started, they told me to turn the ignition on and leave it on til the security light stops blinking..preferably on a battery charger cause I'm always near a freakin outlet. There has been times that I have waited almost two hours before I could get the car to start and its worse when winter is around....Goood Luck Getting It To Start!!! The car is 15 years old..parts are gonna start breaking down eventually. So far I have put brand new tires on it, a new gas cable, the battery has been replaced, I got the front aligment done,serpentine belt has been replaced. The car does get a regular oil/filter change. The car is a great car but the biggest flaw is the security system. That is the one problem and the biggest problem. Thats why I wont recommend it for that reason. I will say this though, I do alot of highway driving so I need a car thats good on gas(if well taken care of)....and good when it comes to winter and this car is."

"This was my 1st car for high school and it is durable and I feel safe (good for accidental fender benders). Very comfortable. However. It is money consuming because I had to invest in it every winter and summer. The tires are hard to find and very expensive. The security on it malfunctioned and would make it so my car would not start. It had a lot of continuous brake and alignment problems as well."

"This is a great car. low miles, great on gas and very safe. I've kept up on oil changes and tune ups. It has brand new tires and breaks. I have 3 kids now and I need a new/ bigger vehicle. The trunk is huge too! Its a great car for anyone, its just not brand new. It would be great for a first time car owner or maybe to even use as a "work " car. it is absolutely fantastic on gas!"
