1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible 3.4L DOHC from North America
The Cutlass Supreme is a bucket of fun
At first the car was using some oil. I replaced the valve covers to correct this problem. The new valve covers had the oil breather in a different spot, this corrected the problem.
Second, I replaced my timing belt at the same time. Even though the car only had about 30,000 miles on it, since it was going on 6 years old at the time I decided to replace it. Plus I have heard of premature snapping on the 3.4L DOHC.
I recently replaced the convertible top and the alternator. Other than that, the car has been great and lots of fun.
The front defroster's plastic dash cover tends to pop up on these models. Mine has started already.
One rear power window has problems going down unless it is helped by hand. The window however has no problem going up so I haven't fixed it.
The one thing I have done consistently is change the oil. Since I only driven the car on a limited basis, I change the oil every 2000-2500 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I just wanted to warn any other cutlass owners about the rear window problem. My window didn't work very well either, and then one day it shattered. It took me 2 months to find one window and I was quoted $450. So fix that problem!
WOW I wrote this review 5 years ago. I still have the car and I only drive it about 200 miles a year now. The car is great but I could really use rear quarter window moldings.
I bought my 94 Cutlass in 2008 with 46000 Kilometers. This car is awesome. Super fun to drive and looks great. I change the oil every 5000 Kilometers with Synthetic 5w30.I saw the reviews about the 3.4 DOHC. I have had nothing go wrong with the car. I drive it on sunny days. This is one of the nicest cars GM ever made.
