Pros: "comfortable, luxury, well designed interior"

Cons: "handling, orphaned"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"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."

"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)"
