1992 Oldsmobile Achieva SC 3.3 V6 from North America
A steal for the price paid
Over all this has been a great car. It has lost a step since I bought it, but the acceleration and power are still there. Very little engine work has been put into it for having it over 3 years. New water pump at 125,000, couple split hoses and new oil pressure sending unit cause place screwed up changing the oil. (I know I know, I usually do it myself even though the filters a pain to get at, but it was freaking middle of Feb. in Michigan) 10 yr old car and 150,000+ miles and only a few hundred bucks in engine work isn't too bad for me. Power window motor wore out around 115,000 and was replaced. Rust starting to show up in wheel wells, but been parked outside in Michigan year round so not too bad.
Over all it's been a really great car, good styling 2 door with spoiler. Premium sound is good. Suspension adjust is a great feature on the car, the handling is excellent, handles better then some newer performance cars I've driven. Been really happy with the car, really good for high school and college students. Still do 0-60 in 8 seconds and no problem with higher speeds. (still no problem hitting 110 plus at 150,000 if needed) Pretty comfortable unless your over 6'3 going on a long trip.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
