1992 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Royale 4dr Sedan


Review

I have owned my car for two years now and It has always been dependable. There were a few things that wore out over time, but instead of buying another old car I fixed a lot. I put all new brakes, suspension, stabilizer links, stereo, oil and trans gasket, fuel and trans filter, fuel system flush, and a belt. Not all of this was entirely necessary but I wanted it to be really nice. I spent what I would have on another car and I couldn't be happier. The car has 92,000 miles and is great. It rides out like a dream and no longer leans into turns. If someone else is wondering what to do with their Olds like mine, it's worth the money. This is coming from a car salesman.


Best Features

The stereo I put in, but stock would be the 3.8L V6 motor. GM really struck gold with this motor. I couldn't be happier.


Worst Features

More front seat legroom would have been nice.

Review

I just purchased this Olds Eighty-Eight as an interstate work car. It gets good gas mileage to start with, 26 mpg, and I added Toyo Ultra tires and Mobil 1 oil and a Mobil 1 filter. Now it is getting 32 mpg highway or better. I'm really happy with this car. It has great looks, is a fun driver, and experiences NO depreciation. I intend to put 200,000 miles on it and then find another. I hope you find a twin to it. My other car is an '04 T hunderbird, which I don't drive much now..as I like the 88 so much.


Best Features

The good gas mileage, looks, fun to drive and lack of depreciation.


Worst Features

None

Review

This vehicle is great. On the highway,
i can avg. about 27-28 mpg, great for a
vehicle this size. best engine GM made
(and still makes) is the 3.8 V6. like
the styling, although the front end
could be less square. currently has
113000 miles and still going strong.
the seats are comfy, although could be
more supportive. like all of the
features mine has. Problems have been a
bad vibration in the front end(maybe
wheel bearing), Electronic Control
Module went bad, and tape player
mysteriously stopped working. Too bad
Olds is going out.


Best Features

Engine, fuel economy (avg. 27-30 mpg.), power, size of interior and trunk, rear end styling, comfortable ride.


Worst Features

4 wheel discs should be standard, along with ABS. better layout of HVAC and stereo controls, better material quality, better seats.

Review

This car will not stop. I can drive it like a
madman and it will still start the next day all
while giving me 25-30 mpg. I can not belive
GM is killing Olds. They should have pulled
the plug on Saturn instead. With regular care
I'm sure this car would safely and comfortably
get me to every destination.


Best Features

Strong, Reliabe 3.8L engine. Comfortable interior. Great MPG


Worst Features

NONE
