Flagship sedan from Oldsmobile feels tight and precise like sophisticated European touring sedans. Inside, a single layout works with five-person seating. Front buckets, firm and supportive like seats found on deluxe German sedans, are covered in leather and move in multiple ways to adapt to body contours. A traction control system (TCS) and vehicle stability system labeled Precision Control System (PCS) score among standard equipment. Sole issue for 2003 is the Aurora 4.0, outfitted with a 4.0-liter V8 that hits 250 hp. In the middle of 2003, Oldsmobile will cast Aurora V8 Collector Edition for the final 500 Aurora vehicles. Each will carry commemorative badges on seats and wheels, plus a Collector Edition certificate of authenticity.
