1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass 3.1 V6 from North America
A dependable car that will last
The most common problem with this car is that is has had a number of leaks, from transmission fluid to coolant and oil. Most have not been that expensive to repair.
I have gone through 2 water pumps, the first at 125,000 miles and the second just recently at 202,000 miles.
Only major engine repair was at about 150,000 miles when it needed a new engine coil. It cost about $500 but has not had any engine trouble since.
Also replaced the struts at around 120,000 miles.
This car is very reliable and will keep running without any major problems as long as you maintain it.
It offers a smooth ride even at a fast speed. Even with 202,000 miles it still rides smoothly even at speeds up to 100 miles an hour.
This car is great on gas for it's size especially when used on highway conditions.
This car has also done well with rust. Has been in Canada and exposed to winter conditions there numerous times. Other cars there are rusting away after 10 years, but this car had very minimal rust.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
