1993 Oldsmobile 98 Elite from North America
I love it, the Olds is my baby
Transmission had to be replaced before I even had the car 1 month, but the dealer paid for that.
The automatic trunk stopped closing the latch all the way.
The dashboard lights flicker on and off each time you hit a bump.
The paint has started to wear away on certain spots of the car.
The trim has started to come off.
When I turn hard to the left or right, you can hear a popping sound.
Over all, I love the car, and plan on buying another next year. This car has a lot of miles on it, and was a 93 when I bought it in 2003. But none the less, I love it. Except for the transmission, all of the other problems have been minor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The popping noise is probably bad cv axles. They should have replaced them when they did the transmission. If they didn't, you should replace them now before the damn wheels fall off.

I owned a 1993 98 and work extensively on my own cars. I think you should check your tire rods as they can give a "popping" sensation if they're broken when you turn the wheel. A big clue is whether the steering wheel shakes. If it doesn't, it's usually a CV joint, if it does, look at the rods. Just a thought, hope this helps.
