I got this car after I graduated 7 years ago. It was 8 years old at that time. This car was affordable to buy though it has cost me a bundle in repairs over the years. I figure though that I've not had to repair anything outside of the normal for a car this age. I also used it for racing when I was younger so that put a lot of strain on it (but boy was it fast). At this age of the car I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but if you could find one a few years newer, I'd say you'd have a winner. The styling was very contemporary. Find and take good care of a convertible version and you'll have a classic someday.
Great seats, very sporty handling, good brake control, simple and contemporary styling. Styling blended well at the races while still looked classy enough for dinner and a movie
Thes is the best money that I have ever spent. I have over 300,000 miles on this car and it is very reliable. No one believes me, but it's true, I get 33 mpg on the highway. I've measured it repeatedly and it's true.
The big trunk and good smooth power in the engine.
I bought this car for my mother, recently. I replaced the "rear brakes", one of the low beam headlights, a signal bulb, and a trunk bulb. The car had 297,000 miles on it, when I bought it. It starts instantly with no hesitation, accelerates quickly, is good on gas, has lots of room inside, has huge trunk space, and is just a beautiful car. Oldsmobile did a great job when they designed this car. I would buy the car all over again, if it was still available. Thanks Oldsmobile for such a great car...
The design of the car's beautiful and I love the instrument panel. All of its accessories are easy to reach in a safety manner. The stereo system sounds great with its four speakers. The cooling and heating system is very reliable as well as the rear and front defrosting. Overall, it's a great car.
There aren't any improvements that I can think of. The car's great and very easy on the eyes. An improvement that I would suggest is to create another model, just as good. It's hard to find a car that you really feel safe inside. Oldsmobile, did it with this one.
