Pros

Great looks , plenty of power . Bought it in 1999 with only 750 miles on it. Now at 130,000 miles burns no oil and still responds great.  GM people told me it was suppoded to be a Caddi, so it has all the bells and whistles for 1998 , including power sun roof.  Normal maint. has been as expected including one set of brakes and shocks/struts around , 1 radiator.  2 power window motors
Gets apx 18mpg in city and 25-26 on highway trips at 70 mph

Cons

A little chatter in the pwr steering on slow tight turns.

Still A Great Car — Liked the looks of the car since it came out in 1994. Still one of the best looking cars in the Country Club lot. Most new cars today look generic and don't have the style of this classic silver torpedo.

Aurora Is A Classic: A Short Review On The Classic Body Aurora — Luxury performance, leather accomidations, and wood trim. The car is 11 years old at the time of writing, it has held up quite well with no major malfunctions. The engine is still snappy it is a 244ci V8 from Cadilac. If you get the chance to drive one of these beauties go for it!

Great Car — My car is pretty cool. Even though it was not meant to be a sports car it's very sports like. Has a decent bit of horsepower and plenty of torque. The northstar or whatever you want to call it performs very well. I love my caddy, I mean Aurora. :) -performance is much better than any car that I have ever owned. I think it accelerated very well in the few races that I have had. It handled well at 110 miles an hour and it brakes just as well. -I think the car is built very well. I have a few problems with it and need to get it painted and some very light body work done but otherwise its solid. -The car looks great on the inside and good on the outside. Maintenance sucks and it guzzles a decent amount of gas but not as much as you would think for a V8. - This car is alot of fun to drive especially if you like to race.

Oldsmobile Went Out A Winner — Its 10 years old, been repainted and has 90K miles. But its a great car and has a V8! It can cruise at 100mph with 4 adults sitting comfortably. Its the best car GM ever built and its a shame that the Oldsmobile brand went away.

Fast, reliable, comfortable, easy to fix.

Right now needs a new case, but I can use Epoxy for a while. Few scratches, but nothing a buffer couldn't fix.

Possibly The Best Luxury/performance Ever Built By Gm. — The galloping ghost is my go-to car. She's fast, comfy, and gets the job done.
