"This car has been in the family since 8/2007 and has traveled up and down the eastern seaboard as well as westward with only minor repairs performed on it. If I wasn't looking for a truck to pull my boat, it would remain with me. It was originally a graduation gift for my daughter but reverted back to me when my daughter purchased a new vehicle. It has served us well."
Pros: "I paid $20K for this car. Got my moneys' worth."
Cons: "that cup holder behind the gear shifter is all."

"This car is amazing. I have over 100,000 miles on it and hope to get another 100 thousand. I have hardly put any money into it. The gas mileage is very acceptable. There is not a drop of rust on it, for being 14 years old. My only complaint is the cup holder that is located behind the gear shifter. You have to put the car in drive to be able to access it, but who really cares? The other cup holder works fine, we only use the unaccessible one when there are two people in the car with drinks, which is super rare. I have a few people asking me to sell this car to them because it looks so nice. For 14 years old, it fits right in with the newer cars and doesn't look old fashioned, nor does it look worn and torn. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this car and wish Oldsmobile didn't go out of business."
"This car came from an inheritance from a retired female with 20,000 miles in 2005. My husband & I used the car as a third car to travel short, medium and long distances. It really takes to the road after about 40 or 50 miles. We had had minimum amount of work done on the car besides, tires, oil changes, battery, etc. Wonder car but she just purchased an SUV for the road travel."
"This is a good vehicle if you have the 3.4 L engine. Most items that require normal maintenance are easily accessible. I have personally put 180,000 miles on this car after it had 136,000 miles on it when I bought it. I have had no major problems, and no engine or transmission problems."
