This car was awesome to me. It was my first car and best car i have ever had. i had the car for 10 years and during that time ive never gotten stuck somewhere, never had to get new battery, never had to get major repairs, nothing. it truly was the best car ever for me!
I inherited this car from my parents in 1996. It has 262,000 miles on it and still runs like new. As long as you do regular maintenance (oil changes, tune ups, tires etc) this car will take car of you.
The 3.1L engine is fast, fun to drive, and gets great fuel economy (even still at 262,000 miles).
It has had a number of leaks over the years, though none were that expensive to fix.
1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme International 2dr Coupe
Although I have a stripped version with manual windows (couldn't believe this...) I still rate this as the best car I have ever driven (and I have driven many "great" cars). The performance and mileage are amazing. I love the ease with which it's driven and the lack of mayor problems (everything dies sometimes...the question is why, where and how...). I can drive 1,000 miles and I feel like I am standing up from the coach after watching TV! Driving is painless! If I've had all the powered things inside I would never give it up. I reccomend it to everyone - this car rocks! Even mothers-with-child can't help and look on the street!
The 3.1L V6 engine, performance, special look, big wheels, handling, feeling of safety, comfort, and easy driving.
More "electricity" in my version... I'm a big fan of switches and buttons :)
I have had lots of cars over the years but i have been so happy with the two olds cutlass i have had I had to say something. i got 1 with 100k miles and my son put another 65k on it without a hitch... and a first car at that. I have a second one and it has done just as well. if you see one.... buy it
GM had some issue with alternators. they need replaced evey 50k miles
I love my Oldsmobile. It is fast and
powerful, even after at least 12 years
in service. I've had it for 2.5 yrs
now, and only now, after 150K miles is
it starting to show any signs of
finally starting to give up.
Everything inside still works great,
esp. the AC, and I've only had the
battery die on me a few times (my own
fault) and a leak in the power steering
fluid...altho the digital dashboard
odometer, speedometer, and gas gauge go
out once in a while and take a few
minutes to come back on. Besides that,
no major complaints.
Super fast and powerful, great AC, v.
Battery is difficult to get to (for
jumping or replacing), as it's covered
w/a metal bar that needs to be removed
to get to it.
