Review of the 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Loaded with equipment. Roomy inside. Adequate power. Excellent value.

  • Cons

    Can't match refinement of Accord or Camry, but then, the price doesn't match Accord or Camry V6 models either.

  • What's New for 1998

    No changes to Oldsmobile's fresh bread-and butter sedan, except for the addition of second-generation airbags.

Bought used, works great

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass GL 4dr Sedan

I bought this car almost 5 years ago. It handles well, corners neatly and is comfortable. Driver's seat is easy to adjust esp steering wheel height which is a biggie for me. The seats were leather and not oiled so consequently they are cracking like mad in driver's seat and one of the rear seats. That's annoying and given a choice, I'd have opted for cloth because leather and 120 degree weather don't mix! The gas mileage is supposed to be 17-22 but I easily clear 25 in town and 30 if I do 60-65 on highway. In fact, I drove to St. Louis with cruise on at 55 mph and got nearly 38 miles to the gallon! Overall I'm very pleased and plan on keeping the car for several more years for my daughter.




Not all its cut up

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass GL 4dr Sedan

I bought this car used. It had 120k miles on it. After 4 months the engine blew. We had issues with it wanting to overheat when stopping & going. Issues with the abs light having a mind of its own. Replaced brakes twice in 6 months. Squealy brakes constantly. Think twice before buying this car.




Amazing first car

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass GL 4dr Sedan

I recently bought this car from my friends grandmother, who hardly ever drove it. It only had 52,980 miles on it. I have had it for a month and it now has almost 54,000 miles on it. It is amazingly fun to drive. Even though it is kind of a 'grandma' car, it still can get up and go. The leather interior is amazing. This is an overall great car. I have had no problems with it, but the wiper fluid container has a leak.
