Bought the car with 98,000 miles for my 16 year old son. It has been an outstanding first car; relatively cheap insurance, and a great buy for $1500. No problems whatsoever, it does a fantastic job of getting him to school and to his fast food resturant job! It should last him through his college years. Very pleased!

Bought the car at $1400 with around
249000 miles (original motor). I'm
very happy with the car. It rides
smooth and quiet. I've had no major or
minor repairs besides normal
maintence. Car still gets 22-24mpg.
The paint quality does need

Love the ride and the size. Original
owner (another family member) didnt
have any trouble. I bought the car
shortly after warranty expired. I've
had problems ever since. Replaced
alternator once a year almost to the
day. Eventually our mechanic found an
expensive alternator with a 5 yr
warranty. Now we replace the
alternator every 18-24 months and pay
only for installation.
Horn "buttons" on steering wheel too
cumbersome and too stiff to be
effective in an emergency.
Paint on roof peeling terribly. It's
the only original paint on the car.

My issues regarding my Olds Royale are
not about the car itself but the
dealership who sold me the lemon. I
bought the vehicle with 68,000 miles
on it in 1996. The dealership has a
120 point inspection check off shees
but it did not prevent the $4,000 that
had to be invested in the vehicle in
the first two years with me. I was
also making monthly payments on it of
almost $300! I could really go on but
there is not enough space
here...Beware of the dealership you
