This has to be the most unreliable vehicle I have ever owned. I had to buy another car just to have a spare when this this is being repaired. I should have bought a tow truck.
The lower ball joints were replaced at 40,000 miles and again at 75,000 miles.
Heater control replaced at around 55,000 miles.
Rear brake calipers freeze up and have been replaced twice. Also on its second or third set of rotors. Actually the 3rd set of rotors isn't that bad since my 2001 Impala is on its sixth set of front rotors.
Ties rods and drag link replaced at 70,000 miles. I wonder why I have it lubed every 3000 miles.
Transmission replaced at 89,000 miles even though I changed the fluid every 40,000 miles.
How can I forget, wheel bearings again at 98,000 miles.
Just starting the shuttering BS when turning. maybe the transfer case fluid again.
Windshield wiper fell off the other day.
Alloy rims leak air and I have to put air in the tires weekly.
At times the headlights go dime then get bright again all on their own. Part of the circus act this car provides.
Fuel pump sounds like a chainsaw. Probably because it has to pump so much gas to the engine.
This vehicle gets 14 miles to the gallon even when its being towed.
I know that I am missing things here but you got the picture.
My family makes fun of me because of this car. My kids tell "Bravada" jokes. I was going to offer it for sale but its being driven (hopefully) to the crusher this weekend. I've have had enough and don't want anybody else to be its victim. R.I.P Oldsmobile.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
