It's time to pull my car from storage and , I am forced to sell my beloved Achieva. I will miss this car......


Originally purchased brand new by my friend from Don Howson GM dealer. Owned and driven by older dude until fall of 2007, when I snatched her.


2nd owner

1993 Olds Achieva S with 177 500 km (original mileage)
Some top of the line options as:
V6 3.3 L
Power Steering / with tilt adjustable wheel
Cruise control / Power windows, locks
Map light / light sensor turns lights up at dark like on newer Intrigues.
A/C works like new.Blows Ice cold in summer. (very rare)


The tires and brakes have 50% left. The car drives very solid and tight. There are no rattles or squeaks.The car comeswith four Michelin tires in decent shape. The body is 9/10. It's one of the cleanest Achievas around with some tasty options. The car is driven and insured at present. It needs nothing but good home.

Recent maintanence:
New hamonic balancer, starter, water pump and battery.




Asking $1700 cad.

Just took car out for oil change and cash wash with wax. AC works like charm. It has also a plug for a winter to plug in. Also non-smoker. Better pics coming soon. Not in a rush. She is now at 179k with decent body, and lots of life left in her.

I was busy with work.... So I am motivated to sell the car.

Any offer close to $1000 takes it. Perfect winterbeater. Insured and driven daily.

Certified/etested? I said I wouldn't buy an auto but this looks pretty damn good... (well...mechanically lol)

BTW I was just reading on wiki and if it's the 3.3L it should be Achieva SL not S

The SL came later on. It's like a sporty coupe. My car is 4 door sedan.

THE 3.3L was an option. The 4 cylinder one came with no options. You had the get V6 to get all the bells and what not. My car is 1993 and has 1 touch window going down. Quite neat for 1993. Heat is working very well even at -35 lol (when last winter many cars did not want to start). My car started on first crank.

Certified/etested? If you are willing to give me $1000 , I will certify it and E tested. I will do it anyways because I drive it everyday and , It is insured, well taken care of and cleaned up. I just came from Pittsburgh ,PA with this car , and it was a blast. Now if you are going to come kick the tires and offer 500-600 and want me to get it certified and E-tested. I may not be willing to deal with lowballers. Let alone that AC still works.
