Pros

I've owned an M5, Merc E, and Toyota Supra Turbo Mark3 and the Olds was the MOST RELIABLE CAR I EVER HAD. Never put hardly anything into it except TLC and I've been hard on it occasionally. At 78,000 miles it still drives almost perfect but I'd prefer a new Caddy CTS-V of course. The car actually handles well for a cruiser and gets about 26 mpg on trips. Needs bigger tires/wheels with Air Suspension if I had my way.

Cons

Average city mpg for 4.0l but V8 is a beast on acceleration with average snow traction. Also seat bolsters could be better but its a $37,000 car new Not $50,000 ever.

Best Reliability Of Any Car I've Owned Considering Its Complexity. — RELIABILITY, Acceleration, Comfort, Looks, and great Highway mpg. Lousy City mpg but any V8 is the same. Will stand against ANY German make I feel of the similar year. Amazing V8 overhead cam for GM and rock solid 4 speed Transmission with Sport mode selection.

I Love It, And I Would Recommend It To Just About Anyone, But Get Rid Of The Factory Wheels — I love this car! I have owned it for 2 years, and have only had to work on it once which was the radiator (but that doesn't mean I haven't worked on it more!) i have done many things to my car, and I love it because it's a V8 that can get 30 mpg on the highway, but still light up pretty much all of the little ricers that pull up beside me...it also rides like a luxury car and handles like a sports car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Cons

premium gas only

Loud And Proud — performance, torque steer is manageable build quality, did have to fix wiring between frame and drivers door. appearance, great sheet metal with awesome aerodynamics, and fully loaded black leather interior with power seats, heated with lumbar, heated mirrors, tinted rearview mirror, fun factor, is a ten, big heavy car with a ride as comfy as a caddy, but with the balls that it will smoke a civic any day of the week

Pros

V8, spacious, good looking for a sedan. nicely styled interior.

Cons

parts aren't as easy to come by and maintanence can be costly, (when it is needed that is, i have never had a major problem.)

As Sleek, Spacious, And Powerful As A Sedan Can Get. — I'll admit it wouldn't be my first choice of car, but it has served me well. it's got a lot of room and handles well for what it is. The styling isn't bad, although a different tail would be nice. The V8 certainly doesn't boast excellent fuel effiency, but it gives it a decent amount of HP to play with. Overall, not a bad car at all.
