"My 1995 Aurora is 20 years old and everything still works perfectly. It's had good maintenance but the quality of the build and strength of the body has made this one of , no the best car I've ever owned. Look into the figures and you will find that the Aurora (gen 1) was unsurpassed in it's day. Mine runs and drives like new, yes it does use a little oil, but it was designed to, (look it up). Those that passed this car up, it was expensive, missed a bargain even at $37,000 in 1995. It didn't come with may options because it already had them all as standard equipment and then some. Would I buy it again? You Bet!"

Comfortable, Powerful, Luxuorious

"When I first sat in an Aurora for a test drive it was like slipping on a perfectly fitted glove. It's a pleasure to drive. While it's a fairly uncommon car and part of a defunct brand I've yet to encounter any major mechanical problems. The V8 engine provides plenty of power even if it does handle a little heavy on corners."

"This is my 2nd one that I bought coming out of a 2 yr lease. My 1st one I traded in a cadillac.....no comparison. The aurora is so much better. The ride is so smooth & it has turbo power. It can GO!!!! No major maintenance just tires, belts, the normal stuff. EVERYONE can't believe the age of the car."
