1992-1998 Oldsmobile Achieva

If were ever an entirely odd, unusual and unexpected of Car Lust, it would be. the Rampage! But a second (third, fourth, or really, given the people here) is my uncanny BLOARC* for the Achieva.

No, I don’t understand it. The car has no meaning to me; I never owned nobody I know ever one, and I’m not sure ever really want to own By most measures it was neither a good or bad car, certainly that would make any person sit up and take notice.

No major reliability issues, not an performer, but not an underpowered weenie-mobile It looked a little odd and the name is flaky.

But I love it still. And is no doubt due to its rather unique There is no excellent beauty hath not some strangeness in the as Francis Bacon said, and is strangeness in the Achieva’s looks.

It doesn’t really look anything else and that to me.

In a way, it’s somewhat to the Honey Badger. You may not want one but they look interesting and just glad to know such a creature exists.

The Achieva was part of Oldsmobile’s efforts to revamp its line and to compete more head-to-head the imports and also to get away the boxy look of the rebadged models that had taken through the late ’80s. The replaced the Calais in mid-year and came in both sedan and versions. It was a pretty standard car and although classed as a compact, it much pushed the limits of class.

The base engine was a Quad-4 that developed between 115 and 190 horsepower, so it could be out to a reasonable performer in that After 1995 the Quad was as a 2.4-liter Twin Cam with half of the architecture of the engine This was done to smooth out of the rough spots in engine compared with the imports, the Honda Accord.

Horsepower with the new engine reached the heights of the old Quad, but it was smoother and more in line what customers wanted. also made V-6s for those requiring higher

The Achieva didn’t quite its goal of model longevity, replaced after 1998 the Alero, which took its cues from the Aurora. well, we see what happened to after that. I still see a few of these around and they invite a turn of the head.

my protestations above, I could see me around in one of the 190-horsepower coupes.
