Thank goodness for warranty! I purchased additional warranty to 60k. Car has been pleasant to drive. Not overly fast, but fast enough for day to day driving. As with most American cars of this size and class it's got sloppy handling, but very comfy highway ride and is quiet.
Bought it for new baby and has worked marvelously as a small family hauler.
Split rear seats are very handy as well as remote entry key fob.
Leather is sub-par, interior quality is above average for GM.
Tire size is good for this car.
Brake pedal feel has typical endemic GM mush over time, but it's a good indicator the pads need to be replaced soon.
Gas mileage is excellent on the highway for such a big car and for the size of the motor.
Oil changes are a breeze. Buy the oil filter "cap" wrench and you are set.
Engine has idled very smoothly since new.
Bought it for $15,900 from a Saturn dealer.
Two things I covet are: Sunroof and heated mirrors.
Olds was going in the right direction of making a decent car with better than GM average of controls and overall build quality. I wouldn't have considered buying again for the repairs, but warranty and great dealer servicing/customer service had been great from Oldsmobile.
