This car is absolutely beautiful. I haven't had a problem since I bought it, and it is the sweetest ride in town.
Try lowering it, it does wonders for the appearance.

I DO love this car! It is replacing my '71 MGB that I bought new, and have just passed on to my oldest son (It was my first car!).
I still need a car that will hold a family, and as I was not prepared to live without a convertible, this was the car that fit my budget. Got lucky, and this car is the same colour as the MG, (Green on tan).
It is equiped with the 3.4 and loves to cruise at 130-140 KPH, the plate reads "HI WARP" (I'm Canadian). It begs you to pull out and pass, and does not disappoint.
I bought the car with 77K (metric) on the odometer. I have had to replace a metal coolant line that runs along the firewall (rusted out), and have done the timing belt as I now have 130K on the car. (did this myself with the help of a Haynes manual, and saved $360).
Fixing this car does not bust up hands the way that working on the MG did! My dislikes are:
1) The amount of body twist this car produces on rough roads (hey it's a large car with the top cut off).
2) The boot cover was an "afterthought" that does not want to stay put.
Just remembered that I had to replace the wires. The factory wires were big bucks. For $50 more, I purchased Magnacor wires that have a lifetime warranty, and are far superior. My biggest problem with this car is that I have trouble getting it off my wife! (lead foot!!!!)

The looks I get with my white on white leather (white top) are aplenty. This car loves to be pushed and handles well. it was worth every penny second hand. the previous owner babied it and I bought it with 149000kms on it. this car rides tight and looks great. I decided to winter store it as they are kinda rare and I plan to keep it for some time. I've got a small spot of rust on passenger door. Anyone else seeing rust on their car? I have a '95 3.4l

I have owned my 1994 for a month. It is triple white and a real attention getter. My mechanic tells me I need to replace the back springs for about $800. Everything else works fine. It has 62,000 miles. I plan to keep it for the rest of my life.

I have a 1994 Cutlass Supreme Convertible with 37,000 original miles. I bought the car in 1999 with 26,900 on it. Although I have spent money servicing it, I must say it gets more looks with the top down than any Miata, Z3, 230 SLK that I know of. The typical questions I get are: Who makes that? It looks new, what year is it?
Recomendations!!!Change your oil every 3,000 miles. Make sure to inspect your timing belt for premature wear. Replace the valve covers with the replacement design that GM service buletins recommend as a correction. This is especially true if your car seems to be using oil.

I bought a teal 1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme convertible on EBay a couple of days ago from a small dealer just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
I am in the process of moving from Newfoundland to Prince Edward Island, and will be flying into Atlanta on the 29th of June to bring the car back.
I paid $4850 US for the car, which was about $6614 Cdn. It looks to be in v.g. condition and has 64,000 miles on it.
I've got all the paperwork done to get across the border, and plan to make the car as perfect as possible and still be able to drive it on a daily basis.
I've wanted one of these cars in teal for several years and am quite excited to be getting it. I have enjoyed reading the postings - the car has the 24 valve 3.4 liter engine, and the timing belt is one of the first things that I will be checking. I'll post again when I get the car.

I purchased a 1993 3.4 DOHC Cutlass convertible last fall with 61000km. I was actually looking for a late model Mustang V8 at the time. The car is bright red and I recently had the timing belt, tensioner and rollers replaced at a GM dealer. The car is a real blast to drive and I wish the speed limit wasn't only 60 mph as this car begs to go fast. I have had strangers come up and ask what kind of a car it is. They are not real common in Canada and I hope to keep mine, for summer use only, for a long time.

To the person who needs to replace back springs: there are no back springs, I think you mean the struts. That is normal and should be replaced every 70,000 I think, I replaced mine at 117,000 they lasted a while. I wanted to warn you so you wouldn't pay for parts that aren't on the car. Be careful, know your car and always take it to a trusting mechanic.

I too own a beautiful white with black interior 95 Olds Cutlass Supreme Convertible. I bought this Florida car summer of 2005, with only 65K miles. I had previously owned an aqua colored 94... and was the best car I had ever owned. When my lease on the 94 was up, I turned it in.. big mistake!!! I finally searched and found this one on eBay. I like the white, with white top. I love the way it rides, handles and performs (3.4 engine). My only complaints are finding parts, particularly the rear window rubber moldings which are sun cracked. Replacements aren't to be found anywhere!!! And the 3.4 engine is costly to work on and service, but when it runs good (99% of the time), it is an absolute pleasure to drive. I love the five seating capacity. I'm going to keep this car for years and only bring it out on nice sunny days. I'm not letting this one go.

I have purchased a 1994 Cutlass Convertible with only 39720 miles. I flew into Raleigh-Durham to pick it up. The car is red and has the 3.1 engine. I was told to stay away from the 3.4. Drove it back from North Carolina to Illinois and had a blast doing so. I have a question, since someone else remarked as to finding the rear quarter window seals. Has anyone else found any of these anywhere? My son works at a GM dealership and he checked on the GM Parts Locator System. Not a one to be had in the whole US. They do not make the part anymore, but my son said that someone had to have purchased the remaining stock. Anyone know whom or what company that might be?

Love this car although it is a bit costly to keep up. I have just replaced the top with the glass window in it. The problem is no seals so now it leaks all around the top. I have been trying to locate any seals for the 1995 olds cutlass convertible. Any information on these seals would be greatly appreciated. The car is fun to drive and has great pick up, but right now it also comes with indoor swimming that is not good. Thanks for any help.
