"Bought my 1997 Oldsmobile Aurora new in early 1997. It is always covered and garage kept when not in use. As of the date of this review it has just over 41,000 miles. The exterior has a great aerodynamic design and I think it still has the look that can compete with the designs of todays vehicles. The only thing I wish was available for the exterior is aux. driving lamps. The interior was very well designed and is very comfortable on long trips. The audio and climate control systems were well thought out and work flawlessly (at least mind does). The seats with their leather skins and heat system make nice on those cold driving days and nights. On one vacation, and staying near the posted speed limit I obtained an average of 28.3 miles per gallon, combined highway/city . Needless to say I was very surprised with the mpg I got on a 4.0L V-8 engine. It also has very good acceleration and smooth performance. The transmission shifts smoothly even under high acceleration. With that said, I could not tell the difference in the "normal" or "performance" modes on the transmission shift column. I do like the where the battery is located, under the rear seat. My first battery lasted 13 years before I had to replace it. This is most likely because it is not near a high heat area such as the engine compartment. The only negative for me is that you need to used the higher priced Premium gasoline. Although it is not a supercar, I and wish it had more HP, I do love my Aurora and would not sell it for any money. As a matter of fact I would like to buy another 1997 if I could find one in as good of condition as mine! (mine is in mint, but not show room condition)"

"This machine is incredible. I just purchased it and it is one awesome car. Granted, previous owner has replaced Starter, alternator, tires, brakes, and rotors. This thing is a a monster! LOL! She is averaging 22 miles per gallon. The interior is pure luxury and the 4.0 DOHC engine is purring like a kitten! Black leather interior, and the AC is extreme! It even has rear environmental controls!The sound system is incredible! All this for a 1995! What? What? 107k and it just rocks it! Beautiful car as well! This is definitely one of the best GM cars ever made. She is for sure my new baby! Love it! She has some quirks, but I have never driven a car like this before! And all too boot, she is a 1995 model! Incredible!"
