"i love this car, stylish, unique, and very tough. had this vehiclce sicne 2003, recently trade it in but i miss it alot. the only thing i would say about this vechile is that when the transmission starts jumping its kinda annoying. we needed a part for the transmission on our aurora and they told us that the parts was discontinued so had to deal with a jumping transmission which is one of the reasons why we traded it in. its very costly on gas but i enjoyed every inch of the driving experience of it,."

"I love this car. I got it in 2013 with 157k miles, its at 173k now, and it runs and sounds like a new car, no clunks, no rumbles, smooth and quiet... it has gorgeous leather seats in perfect condition and all the extras. NO complaints, best older car I have ever had, hey, olds did a fantastic job trying to save their company with this car, it is a classic and the body style looks about like a new Altima but racier... absolutely beautiful car, doesn't come off dated. mine has v8 engine, strong and boss. most cars don't run too bad, if you change the oil, someone obviously took good care of my car in the years before I bought it. Thanks!"

"I thought this was a beautifully styled car of the day, and it was voted the best design of the decade during that time. I know Oldsmobiles are no longer built, but I am sad for several reasons. Mainly because I grew up in Oldsmobiles: my dad bought a new one every 3 years. I have never been unhappy with this car, and I bought it with a 5 year 60k extended warranty directly from Oldsmobile new. I extended that warranty to 75000k, and am very happy that I did. I have never had to spend any significant money for repairs. All problems that I have had were covered by the warranty. Water pump replaced, electronic A/C control module replaced, alternator replaced, transmission shift solenoid replaced, and A/C compressor replaced are some of the major repairs, and the most expensive ones made. I also had to replace the rear air shocks at about 50k, but not surprised at that. I get between 19 and 27 miles per gallon depending on whether it is city or highway, but can normallly get 400+ miles per tank. For a full-sized car, the mileage is exceptional. I am a lead-footed driver, so you probably could do better with better driving habits. I will never sell this car. I have taken care of it, and hope to never need to replace it, as I believe it is a highly popular car. You don't see many of these for sale, and believe in 20+ years may become a collector car. It has essentially held up well for a 2nd generation, 1st year release vehicle. I have heard very few complaints from other owners, and most reviews I have read reveal most will not consider getting rid of the car. It has never burned oil, nor leaked anything. Engine runs quiet, and smoothly. This engine is based on the Cadillac Northstar, but is called the Shortstar due to the 6 cylinder design (Northstar is a V8). If you are interested in a collector car for future value, look no further."
