NEW ACHIEVA NAMED CONSUMERS DIGEST 'BEST BUY'
NEW ACHIEVA NAMED CONSUMERS DIGEST 'BEST BUY' LANSING, Mich., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The all-new Oldsmobile
Achieva is just out of the starting blocks and it's already been recognized by the tough auto experts at Consumers Digest as being a "Best Buy" for 1992.
The magazine said "Rather than spending money to add gadgets and gizmos that look good on the showroom floor, manufacturers are concentrating harder on improving usable performance, overall refinement and quality." Winners were selected for styling, performance, comfort and especially value. In the compact class, Consumers Digest praised the Achieva's wide range of powertrain selections, saying "The Base Quad OHC engine does a good job of providing basic transportation and good economy, and the 3.3-liter V6 is smooth, quiet and plenty powerful." Achieva is also being recognized by consumers: Since Jan. 1, over 6,000 Achievas have been sold. Sales have been limited only by an intentionally slow production acceleration rate to ensure the highest quality. "Our dealers are seeing customers trading their imports for an Achieva and they're ordering all they can get," said Oldsmobile General Manager Mike Losh. "As soon as we're up to full line speed, these sales numbers will be increasing dramatically." All Achieva models -- from the highly affordable S to the spirited SCX performance coupe -- include many standard safety features not found on competitive cars such as anti-lock brakes and automatic door locks. "The Achieva is an intelligently engineered, smartly designed, affordable car that's built right here in America, and that's exactly what consumers have been asking for," added Losh. -0- 3/2/92 /CONTACT: Ross H.
