Bulletproof 'granny'

by on
Vehicle: 1990 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Royale Brougham 4dr Sedan

We've had "Old Girl" since 1996 when my wife's grandparents stopped driving. She received it w/ 19,0000 miles. Today we have 186,000 miles on her w/ no signs of slowing down. She's never left us on the side of the road and always starts in the morning (unless the aftermarket alarm power lock relay sticks and drains the battery). The clearcoat on the roof is now gone and the driver rear door won't open (worn out lock mechanism) but she keeps rolling down the road w/ the original exhaust (except catalytic converter), shocks, struts, and complete powertrain. She's spent her entire life in IA, WI, and CO--so that is saying a lot about her durability. She's not "cool" but she's well loved.

This car was left to us by my father in law. It has over 225 000 km on it and is still going strong. The car sat in the driveway for 2 1/2 years and fired right up with the purchase of a new battery. It has not needed any other repairs but a power window on driver side is dead. It has quite a bit of rust around wheel wells, but overall it is quite a reliable car. It gets approximately 19 km per mile.

This car is 210,000 miles old and it is still running strong. The air doesn't work anymore, but other than that, there is nothing wrong with it. What a great car!




Just got this little creature

Vehicle: 1990 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Royale 4dr Sedan

I just bought this car for $850.00. KELLEY suggested that price, EDMUNDS suggested less. I gave that price because the owner had put in a new gas tank, cd system, new fuel and brake lines and the car ran very nicely. It has quite a bit of rust around the tire wells and door handles and antenna mount. The underside of the car (being driven in upstate New York),is pretty rusty, some of it superficial.I have a friend who will do body work. The car is quite comfortable with plenty of back seat room and the material covering the seats is still is excellent and the interior vinyl work is excellent with no rips or discoloration.

I have over 222K miles on this vehicle and only had to replace a few routine items, alternator, water pump, brakes, etc. I live in a rural area where paved roads are a luxury. It has been rear-ended twice and still drives great! This car costs very little to drive and I would buy another one without hesitation.




Best car so far

by on
Vehicle: 1990 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Royale Brougham 4dr Sedan

Bought the car with 90K on it. Noe I have 210K. I have not done any maintenence on it except oil changes and breaks. It is by far the best riding and most comfortable car I've ever had. I get unbelievable milage on the highway. I am dissapointed, however, that it has only one cup holder; but a quick trip to Canadian Tire for a console fixed that. This car is reliable, gets great milage and has enough power to make you feel confident when passing on those busy 2- lane highways. This is a great used car!
