Sorry, Jim got the last one.

Actually, I don't even see many of them on the road. Were they not very popular?

Only 15 000 were made each year of the classic 95-99, and Oldsmobile is now a discontinued lineup...all gone...

Much like Plymouth...Chrysler canned that lineup too

The 2000+ Aurora is not nearly as nice as the 95-99...they copped out big time...its just an Intrigue on steriods. If I only could choose between 2000+ Bonne or 2000+ Aurora, I would take the Bonneville.


95-99, well, thats another story

I had a new body 2001 Olds Aurora before I got my 2000 SE Bonnie. And I have to say that the cars are very similar. With the Aurora, it seems to be more of a luxury car where as the Bonnie gives you a more sporter feel. I do feel that the ride in the Aurora was a little smoother than my Bonnie but, I have more room in the front for the driver and front passenger in the Bonnie. When I saw the 2001 Olds A ride at the auto show I said I had to have one. So I got a 2001 Aurora 3.5 with 16000 miles. ( a demo ) The owner of the dealership was driving for his demo. I had the car for 1 week and the dealership called me and said that my finance had changed and that my mthly pymt would be over $600. So needless to say that'* how I came to having my Bonnie. But no love lost, I thing it was ment to be. I had a 94 Bonnie SE and for a long time after that car wanted a 99 SSEI, I Really Love that car.

The Aurora is a great car and it'* a shame that it has to die. But long live the Bonnie!!!!!!

I don't think it'* a pumped up intrigue, it'* a classier look, not as curvy, but it'* classier, more of a german car look.

All I meant was that in comparision to the aggressive design intentions of the 95-99, the 2000+ seems like a copped out design. It lacks creativity. And put it beside an Intrigue...from the back they look similar. The only thing that I like about the new Aurora is the front end...very pretty
