Beautiful Car with a lot of Issues
Don't have my maintenance file here with me while I write this review, so I don't have exact dates & mileage information, but I've had several problems with this car, including:
Fuel Rail (three)
Cruise Control Stopped Working.
Transmission started slipping at 80,000 miles.
Starter went bad.
There's plenty more that I don't recall at the moment...
First let me say that I think this is a great LOOKING car, with a fabulous interior.
However, it's expensive to maintain, as it requires Premium gasoline, and holds 7-1/2 quarts of oil. And nothing on this car is cheap or easy to repair! Small wonder Oldsmobile went out of business. I think this car in particular is a perfect example of why people buy Toyota's!
It's unfortunate that American auto makers just pale in comparison to the Japanese. I however never have, and especially post 9/11, never will drive a foreign car! I LOVE my big gas-guzzling-expensive-to-repair-AMERICAN car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
