"Okay, so I love my van, but seriously, I am on the third transmission and second engine, in just 212,000 miles. GM transmissions are awful, expensive to work on. When it's on the road, very comfortable, can't beat it for road trips, but hard to forget the almost $6,000 in repairs in the last few years. (first trans. van was still under warranty) Awesome gas mileage, better than any new van out there. Not sure I would ever buy another GM product though, too bad Oldsmobiles are extinct anyway."

"We got this car a while ago, and it was great. Over time it became one of the biggest holes in our checkbook ever. In the past few months we've lost a couple thousand on repairs alone."

"140,000 miles and it's finally over (head gasket blew). Two lower intake manifod gasket replacemnts ($850 repair- once at 24,000 and again at 85,000). Water pump, tie rods, two cd players, master and slave brake cylinders, handles break, interior parts crumble. No wonder they no longer make this."
