V8+family Sedan=perfection — Interior is all leather, extremely roomy, huge trunk, great looking car. I wish I could have another one. enough power to go anywhere. Fuel economy not so great but who cares when you have a v8 dual cam under the hood. They are expensive to fix, but luckily I am a mechanic so for me it just cost more time. But to be simple...I loved this car and you can't spell perfection any other way.

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.

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.

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.

2001 Olds Aurora — Beauty of a car... pearl white and looks fast just sitting... sad because the electronics seem to be a bit testy but overall I love this car So far, cost of ownership is low but it's a bit early to tell for sure... I would recommend to others... Much nicer than my 93 accord it replaces :)

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!
