1995 Oldsmobile Aurora 4.0 V8 from North America
The transmission needed some sensors replaced at 30,000 miles.
The lumbar seat support adjustment failed.
The electric antenna was replaced at 100,000 miles.
The car was recalled for seat belts at 130,000 miles after they would not retract.
The car was recalled for a fuel leakage problem after 130,000 miles. The fuel rail all the way back the gas tank was replaced free of charge.
General Motors was slow to act on the fuel leakage problem. When brought to the dealership, their reply was that they did not have the parts to fix the problem and I would have to wait until GM made them. Eventually, 6 months later, the dealership ordered the parts and replaced the fuel lines and rail.
Overall it is a wonderful car that so far, knock on wood, has been very reliable. It was a good contender for the BMWs of the day. Back then it was ahead of its time, but now it simply keeps up with the competition. The bar had been raised quite a bit these days.
I only wish it had a manual transmission and the bigger Northstar V8.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
