Luxury Sports Sedan (on A Budget) — The Aurora was redesigned in 2001, and the new design left the car with a sportier, and more modern look. This car was Oldsmobile's last attempt at an entry luxury sedan - it was available with two engines a 3.5L V6 and 4.0L V8. Standard features include leather upholstery, 6 way memory power seats, burlwood dash, projector headlamps, power everything. This car is a driver's car. The center stack is sharply angles toward the driver with radio and temperature controls within close reach. On the top of these controls is the Driver info center which has a variety of features, including, date, time elapsed, fuel used, fuel range, fuel economy, oil pressure, voltage, etc. This info center also communicates messages to the driver, like "Headlamps Suggested" or "Change oil soon". This car offers quick performance and is a joy to drive - its agile and nimble around town as well as being quiet and comfortable on long road trips.

Pros

Build quality, Acceleration, Comfortable to drive, Bose.

Cons

Fuel economy(v8) 15-23. Northstars aren't complicated motors even the v6 is just a shortstar v8 still as complicated.

4.0 — Its a cadillac STS with a slightly smaller motor. Acceleration doesn't make you forget its a v8. Interior and Exterior are both nice and doesn't look cheap. Wish the v8s had standard moonroof and heated seats, even though it has rain sense wipers and memory seats. Nice riding car.

Pros

A real head turner, beautiful, and a cadillac-like ride, and awesome features.

Cons

a little rattle over harsh bumps, not a gas miser, fog lamps don't help much

My Realistic Dream Car — Beautiful car in my opinion. i love it, it is well built, well balanced, and a tremendous value for all the options it has. not the cheapest on parts, but i still love it. a dream to drive, every time i get behind the wheel, it's relaxing, yet powerful when provoked. a true blend of stunning looks and practical performance. want more power? get the 4.0, but kiss gas milage goodbye.

01' Olds Aurora 3.5l — This is one of the best looking cars ever produced. Even almost 9 years after purchasing the car, it still looks better than most mercedes, acura, infiniti, lexus, and caddilac models. It has great aerodynamics which help the mileage greatly on the highway. the only major issue was that it needed a transmission rebuild due to the control module going berzerk. I wish we had the 4.0L version as it would be even more fun to drive but it handles well, accelerates nicely, and is a great cruiser as is.

Excellent Comfort And Luxury For The Money. — This car has had very few maintenance issues. It has 160,000 miles on it currently and is driven on a daily basis, in the harshest of conditions...the "start & stop" traffic of New Jersey. Great car to drive anywhere! Very comfortable and roomy back seat, good performance and power for long trips.

If you like luxary and performance its for you

Cons

If you cant handle the power of a V8 stay away

Beast — Its a fine line between performance and luxary when it comes to Oldsmobiles, specifically the Aurora. Not only is it a full size, fully loaded, sedan but it also comes with some of the best handling for a car its size. Always a smooth comfortable ride. The design of the interrior of the car is very driver friendly. Olds didnt skip anything when making auroras, from the leather to the bose sound systems, from the heated seats to the rims, overall one of the best cars GM has ever made.

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

2001 Olds Aurora 4.0 — performance its a mid size car with a 4.0 so vary good acceleration and it handles well if not a little to heavy in the front end the rear and kinda slips around to much for my taste Build quality seems to be very poor many small fixes and issues to be dealt with. other then that is a very sharp sporty car that i enjoy driving very comfortable for long distances

Great Car For A College Student, First Time Driver, Or Even A Family Car! — The turning radius is not as good as other cars I've had, but it handles great otherwise! I've enjoyed good gas mileage, comfortable interiors, gReAt sound system, compliments from passengers, low insurance rates and pretty easy ownership and maintenance costs!

One That Has Been Maintained Is Worth The Investment If You Can Afford To Keep It Up... — I love everything about this car except for the transmission speed sensor wiring. It's been a pretty reasonable car to maintain. Transmission was replaced at 121,000, but the engine continues purring along just about as a new one, just with a little less gas mileage than I'd prefer.
