Summary:

Great styling and performance. A great convertible!

Faults:

A/C pulley had to be replaced because it was making a noise.

General Comments:

Great car! Excellent car all around fun! Future classic!

This car is worth the cost to keep on the road and enjoy. Take it to a car show with the top down and enjoy!

Low production numbers make this car a perfect candidate to be a classic with only 8,160 convertible produced, and not too many had the 3.4l.

Summary:

The Bomb

Faults:

Have had very little problems with my Cutlass. Only thing is more power. Take care of it and you've got Gold.

Get an MDS Air intake along with a Glass Pack, and it will increase the power and torque, and make you happy.

Summary:

Already looking around for another one to drive daily

Faults:

Alternator was replaced at 48,000 miles.

Starting to see a few drips around top of windows when it rains.

Most puzzling problem now is power locks will start jumping up and down in unison while driving down the road and sometimes while parked with the engine off. Sometimes locks will not work at all by use of the button on the doors or from the key fob... when this happens either the overhead light on the roll bar will remain on or one of the lights on the rear-view mirror will remain on. This usually lasts for a couple hours and then all is fine until the next time. This problem has also caused the keys to be locked in the car at least twice... once running and once with the engine off. This has also killed the battery overnight on 3 occasions.

Not able to find many interior or exterior trim parts except at a local salvage yard and most of those are in worse shape then the parts you have.

A/C is only blowing cool air even though it is showing proper pressures on the high and low sides and was topped off with freon. Looking into that now.

General Comments:

Love the classic styling of this car... for sure will be a classic.

Mechanically has never let me down, but my mechanic hates to work on it... rear plugs hard to get at, have to take the wheel off to replace the alternator, etc...

Have yet to see another Limited Edition, so not sure if the Black Leather seats with red and white leather inserts is original in my white car with a black cloth top. Grey carpet that matches the floor is on the door panels, and has the factory Oldsmobile floor mats.

Did I say I love this car... always get positive comments when I drive her somewhere, and people get to look her over.

Summary:

A good car for its time

Faults:

Car ran fine until two weeks after purchase, then the problems started.

Car was making a clicking noise every time it shifted gears; I had to accelerate at a very slow pace to keep this from happening.

Then when the car shifted into overdrive, it would jerk, I let off the gas an it was fine.

Took it in and found out that the transmission and timing chain are bad, and now I can't get a hold of the previous owner to ask about these problems.

All in all, it was a great car.

General Comments:

A great car, but the seats weren't the most comfortable.

He got the car when it had nearly 200,000 miles on it, so the transmission was worn out. A '94 Ciera is an OK car, but the '89-'93 version was much better as it had the 3.3 liter V6 rather than the 3.1 liter.

Hey I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera & let me tell you the 3.1 liter is no slouch!! I destroy brand new Hondas, Acuras & other wannabe sports cars on the highway all the time!! That & I get well over 400km to a tank of fuel.

I love my 94 Olds! I've had it since 2004, it's now 2010; just general maintenance, brakes, etc. I did have a transmission issue that turned out to be a fuse that wasn't allowing the car to communicate with the transmission. An 80 dollar fix, as opposed to who knows how much! It's 16 years old and gets 22 miles a gallon in town. Hmmmm, come to think that, our other car is nearly new, smaller, and gets less gas mileage.
