Hi Aurora Gang,
Just wanted to share my experience test drove this car on saturday and made the deal today. My car is 2001 Olds Aurora with 16800 miles and paid $6800. Not sure whether got a good deal. It had low miles because old owner she was around 70 years old and she stopped driving for last 3 months ......
On staurday during the test drive i really loved it i was actually a Japenese car owner and wanted to buy one of those but after driving and seeing the luxury changed my mind completly really awesome ...
Sacred of the maintenance went through couple of your inputs really scared a little seeing the expensive maintenencae can some tell which is the best place to buy extended warranty and what option should i use...and the normal maintenece what shld i do ...

2 weeks ago i purchased a 2001 Aurora with only 4400Km from a Ford Dealer! Let me tell you that this car was NEW the smell, no scratch, everything was just as if it was a 2007!!!!(but we all know there is no 2007 hehe ) The person who traded-in the car as a collection of cars and he took care of this car you woulndt beleive it!! I paid 18995$ for it in August 2006. And i love it! I am looking forward to talk with other Aurora owners.

Wow thats weird me too! I just got my Aurora at a ford dealer its a 2001 as well 4.0 loaded more miles though about 54000 still a new car to me! I got her for 9900 after some serious work at the dealer. Its beautiful though love the bronze mist! I got a good long warranty and I'm glad because she had a sensor go out apparently. I get her back tomorrow.

Let me know when you get it back... Id like to know what was wrong with it. I took an extended warranty on it too, 4 years 80000 km for 2400$ and if i don't claim anything they will give me 50% of the amount at the end of the 4 years.

The price depends on whether it is a 6 or 8 cylinder. The early 2001's did not have onstar built in, but the later ones did. Check the build date on the door panel. 136miles is a lot of miles for the car. I don't know that much about the second genearation auroras. I have the Classic body style.

I went out today to look at it again and it does not have onstar only the 2001 v8's came with it. The car have a few small dings but it looks good for 4500 buck. The power is good all the toys work and it was owned by one guy who bought it new. I will do my own diagostic testin before if buy it.

That's not true. Like Henri said, it's by build date. They didn't have it on the early cars. There are 3.5L Auroras with OnStar. FWIW, the analog OnStar coverage will cease in 2008, so it's a non-issue for the most part anyway. Though you should be able to upgrade the 2nd gen Auroras to digital.
