Repair and service Oldsmobile cars in the eBook

Oldsmobile is the oldest automobile brand in the world and was part of General Motors Corporation for most of its existence. It was founded by Ransom Eli Aldous back in 1987, having spent 107 years in the automotive market. During this time, the company has produced more than 35 million vehicles. Correctly the cars were called "Olds automobiles", but in conversations they were shortened to Oldsmobile. & Nbsp;

The company was the first manufacturer to produce high-volume gasoline-powered vehicles. For several years it was the leader among car sales in the United States, but unable to cope with financial difficulties, Olds sold the company's shares to the GM concern in 1908.

The top car at the time was the Limited Touring, produced in 1910. The model became even more famous after being whitewashed in a race at the famous train "20th Century Limited".

In 1937, the factory became the first to produce a 4-speed semi-automatic gearbox, and after 3 years it presented a complete Hydramatic automatic gearbox with 4 speeds. During the war, the company produced large-caliber cannons and shells. & Nbsp;

Oldsmobile was the first company to showcase an 8-cylinder engine in 49 and named it "Rocket". It gave out much more power and was mega in demand among racers. Cars equipped with such an engine were faster than conventional ones. The company was the first among other companies of the concern to produce hardtop, and the first to start producing cars with panoramic windshields. Over the years, GM design has lost its status as a pioneer, the series of cars have tried to update, but all did not bring success. It was only in the 60s that the company was able to regain its leadership position thanks to the turbocharged engine, the first front-wheel drive Tornado model, the Vista Cruiser wagon with a panoramic roof.

Over the next decade, the company's sales increased significantly: design, quality, reliability and reviews allowed to sell more than 1 million 66 thousand cars in 1985, and the Cutlass became the most demanded model. & Nbsp;

In 1977, the company, in cooperation with Chevrolet and Pontiac, developed their own 5L and 7L & nbsp; engines for future replacement V8. It is difficult to point out the differences in the quality of these motors, but the fact that they were different in structure is a fact. Since the demand for Oldsmobile cars was unrealistic, and the V8 engines could not fully meet the orders, most of the cars were supplied with 5L and 7L Chevrolet engines. Oldsmobile sharply lost its position, and instead of new cars, it began to produce rebrand models of the entire concern. With the release of the Aurora in 1995, nearly all of the models were discontinued and replaced with modern variants. Despite everything, GM decided in 2000 to close the Oldsmobile brand. And two days before that, the company released the latest model of the Bravada SUV, which became the bestseller. It was equipped with a 6-cylinder engine with a volume of 4.2 liters and a power of 270 hp. And also the model was equipped with an airbag in the basic equipment.
