Very nice-looking car! Projector-look headlights on a GM car back in the 1990's, who would've thunk it?
You're gonna make me cry.....so sad to see the demise of Oldsmobile. I thought this was going to be the car to turn them around. What a shame.
I love it though, congrats on your new ride. Are you gonna do what Saturn did with the NACOTY award? Send the car around to all GMI members that supported this purchase! I want her first!
Haha, if you guys are paying for gas and insurance...sure! I was actually pretty surprised for the insurance rate that I got. $470 every 6 months. Not too bad....Unfortunately the car requires midgrade fuel, but what are you gonna do. It drives beautifully, and rides great too. It has more features that I even wanted, way more and I am getting about 17MPG in mostly city driving, right around EPA estimates.Originally Posted by likearock00
You know, I really never understood why so many people were saying that they wish the Oldsmobile brand were still alive, but now I definitely get it. DOHC engine, smooth but sporty right, tons of perks at a decent price...well here's to you Saturn, may you carry Oldsmobile's flame.
Very nice! These were the best cars GM sold at their time. While everything else had crappo interiors, engines, looks, blah blah blah, the Oldsmobiles were stepped up to be almost best in class. Too bad it didn't work though and they just killed Olds anyway.

Very nice! I didn't realise those cars had two-tone interiors. Looks great! I'd love an Aurora someday; either generation. Enjoy!
Very sharp, TaHoE. I have spent a few hundred miles in a first-gen Aurora, but I don't think I've ever been in version 2.0. They seem to be good used car bargains, and that interior is still better than many GM is throwing out there, 5 years later.

The Aurora is a nice car. I saw a silver one yesterday and I loved it.
Which engine does it have? It had either a V6 or V8, right? What else used those engines? If I recall they were fairly new at the time of the Aurora. Was the 6 the Shortstar?
The Gen 2 Aurora ('01 to 03) has a choice of either a 3.5L "ShortStar" (Although it's official engineering name was the Short North) V6 with 215HP and the 4.0L "Aurora" V8 with 250HP. I don't remember what the engines were used in besides the Aurora (I don't think they were shared at all actually). The Shortstar was only used in Gen 2 Auroras. The Gen 1 Aurora was only available with a 4.0L Aurora V8. Here's more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_Aurora . Mine's a 3.5. Both the 3.5 and 4.0 were engineered off of the Northstar engine design.Originally Posted by paul8488

That is sooooo beautiful, TaHoE <sniff>
Hate it when I get dirt in my eye. Darn.
