Green Survivor by GreenMile from Houston on 04/26/2004. Trim: 1996 Oldsmobile Achieva SC 1SA, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Good gas mileage Still performing well after 130,000 intercity miles
Cons: Replaced CV joints after one year of ownership, felt that was premature. Transmission replaced, 4 years.
Overall review: I have owned my Achieva for 7 years, and bought it used with 30,000 miles. I have honestly driven the tail off of it and most in high traffic areas of the city. Yes, I've had some problems, but I can't say that I've had anymore problems with this make and model of Oldsmobile vehicles than I did a Cutless that I owned. I took good care of my Achieva and obtained proper maintenance which they seem to require more often, and it's been very good to me.
