1994 Oldsmobile Achieva S Coupe 2.4 liter quad 4 from North America
A stylish car that will fly
I have had the rotors replaced once which helped the brakes since I put in heavier rotors.
I have had both door panels replaced twice..
I have had the trim replaced under warranty..
Had the car repainted one year.
Had the air conditioner coil replaced under warranty, the tilt fixed and the bright light and signal unit replaced..
Most of the work has been under warranty in the first year, after that a great car!
I love the speed of the car and that mine is stylish. The braking system in this car is not the best and it likes to break shocks. But I plan on getting another GM product, maybe another Olds.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I just bought a 1996 Achieva for $2500. It was "broken in" with 155000 miles when I bought it. I was originally going to just use it as a people mover, but have decided that I want to try something different, and wish to soup it up some. I have absolutely no idea where to start, since the market today in my area is geared towards Japanese and German subcompacts. I see all types of "rice burners" buzzing down my street, and ask, why not go for an Olds Achieva Type R? I have found the car somewhat easy to work on, minus the fact that half the bolts are standard, and the other half metric. An obvious GM flaw that completely baffles me. I think in my adventure to soup up my Achieva, I'll start with the intake and exhaust, and move to the engine, and maybe get a trick muffler tip or a Flowmaster. If anyone knows any helpful tips, or of places that have body kits and performance parts for my Olds, please e-mail me at Sniperontherooftop@Hotmail.com.
