1992 Oldsmobile Achieva SC 2.3L DOHC from North America


A great car!!!!!


When I first got the car I knew the motor was going to have to be replaced, it was a 2.3 Quad 4. It had 112,000 miles on it. Well it finally gave in, so I replaced the motor with a 2.3L Quad 4 DOHC. Now the car is better than ever. This car is great, it really moves.

General Comments:

I love this car. You couldn't ask for a better car for a kid. The only wish I have is that it could have been a manual. But other than that it is great. The interior is also nice. Just the way it wraps around you when you are in the car. The looks are also great. I have the Neon Blue, dual exhaust, rear spoiler and fog lights. The car looks great.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I love my Sport Coupe. It is fast as hell and the interior is so awesome. They are by far the most fun cars.

The shocks have been replaced twice while under the 3/36 warranty.

Water leaks - front and rear windows.

Vents on dash boards fall out.

Driver's seat - loose - took the dealer three attempts to fix.

Numerous warning lights keep coming on for no reason on the dashboard. Different items on the vehicle have been replaced, but the problem still occurs.

General Comments:

Poorly built vehicle - Does not handle very good, and the ride is terrible.

Every bump on the road makes you think you are riding in a tank! The dashboard warning lights light up like a Christmas tree. We have grown used to the lights, because all the checks have results with no problems with the vehicle.

I have a 92 Achieva that I bought in February. I am also having the same problem with my dashboard warning lights. My ABS light and my check oil light are always coming on.

Yeah have the same issue with the lights.

Filled up my gas tank the other day and my lights didn't come on til the next time I started the car, I think I confused it.

I bought my car back in April and my speedometer doesn't work unless I have been driving in the rain for a period of time, check oil and check gauges are always on... unless the speedometer has decided to work.

I am having the same problems with the dash board lights. They keep saying check gages and check oil. My driver window is also off track. The car hesitates in the middle of the road and I am petrified to take it on the highway.
