1995 Oldsmobile Achieva S from North America
This car is a severe waste of money
My door panels are falling off.
My transmission slips and stalls.
I've had to replace the cooling fan motor.
I've had to replace the water pump.
I've had to replace the coil.
I've had to replace the radiator.
The car has been running hot since the day I bought it, even after all I have done to it.
I am having problems with the electric window swith.
I am now having a problem with the door locks not working properly.
I have had nothing but problems with this car since the day I bought it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Check Oil light stays on unless I start the engine and immediately turn it off, then restart it. The Check oil light will remain off for the remainder of the trip.
Heater core had to be replaced at 209,000 miles.
Overall the car has performed well with 215,000 miles on the odometer.

I can top that heater core figure! I bought mine from a dealership, used, 2 years ago. I had my car a few months when the heater core went out. my car was at 74,000 miles! $600 later, chitty chitty bang bang was normal again.

I live in post-katrina land and almost everything around here cost more nowadays. but my 1995 acheiva s heater core job will cost about $300. to replace part and labor. I don, t know where you guys are at to have to pay $600. for that work. it, s gotta be at a dealer.
