1995 Oldsmobile Achieva S 3.1 from North America
Typical GM car
Inside door panels falling apart on both passenger and driver side.
Both widow motors died, as did the sun roof motor.
Passanger side door lock difficult to lock/unlock.
Turn signal lever sticks when using the left turn signal.
Car has taken a beating has kept on going.
The interior could use better materials and design.
The gas mileage in the car when in good for is great. I've gotten close to 40mpg.
Lowering the car a couple inches helped a ton with handeling.
Changing the oil is easy, anything else requires a lot of work.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree with everything you had to say about the Achieva. I had to get clamps from my mechanic to hold my door panels on. I've had the two front window motors replaced, the rear two still don't work. I also have to use my manual locks because it is expensive to replace all my power locks. My turn signal lever sticks when I turn left, but it only seems to happen when its cold to me.
I got my car for cheap, so I don't expect perfection. After 144,326 miles mine still runs very good. I have one problem though, I'm not sure if its just wore out, but my transmission shifts a little hard, espicially out of first. Any solutions would be appreciated.
