1995 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0 from North America
Nice looking, but costly to own
Bought the car at 64k.
Everyother 5th time or so that I start the car the turn signal noise comes on and stays on until I press the brake pedal! What the???
At 65k the crank sensor went $550.
At 76k the speed sensor went $325.
At 130k the an injector went $800.
At 132k the part of the Trany went $900.
At 133k the water pump went $500.
This car is killing my retirement savings. What was GM thinking when they pieced this thing together? Nice looking and all, but if you'd like to hold on to your $ do not buy one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

3K$ to get to 133K. Doesn't sound that bad, considiering the ride you were getting. I won't sell my SC 96 Riv, but I drove the V-8 Aurora today, and I'm getting one.

All I have to say is, if spending $3k in repairs by 133k miles is reasonable to you, you must have owned some real piece of $#!% cars. I've owned Ford, Toyota, Plymouth, and 2 Volvos and have NEVER spent that kind of money on repairs! And these were all high mileage cars ranging from 138k to 210k miles. Buy a reliable car and you will see my point.
