1993 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Royale 4dr Sedan


Review

I just got this car about a month ago, it has 129,000 miles and drives like a Caddy. I paid $1000 for it. The 3800 series engine it has is an easy access and roomy engine compartment to get around in. Fixing it myself is now an option if problems do come up. The only problem is the door seals have shrunk a little and you get a little wet in the car wash.


Best Features

The big front seat is easy to for "kissing" my wife. The back seat can easily fit 4.


Worst Features

Short windows in the front make it hard to smoke in.

Review

I bought this as a first car and love it. It is very roomy and has great pick up with the V6. I burn all my friends. I love the comfortable ride, the swaying by the loose supsension is eh but without that there would be no ride. I did replace the altenator but that was it. Otherwise everything was fine. I crashed it, everything is good except for bumpers, fenders, radiator. I'm thinking of replacing the $1,500 in parts instead of selling it for $500, what a nice car, everyone wants it. The trunk is huge! Take this car, you won't be dissapointed.


Best Features

I love the smooth ride and the V6 engine that it is turbocharger ready. It's so nice.


Worst Features

None really. The weather stripping shrunk so water leaked in, but that happens on every old car. The color wasn't my favorite but it doesn't matter and I think the motor on my atenna broke. I love this car.

Review

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!


Best Features

Reliability, smooth ride


Worst Features

None. Great first car!

Review

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
improvement.


Worst Features

Fuel economy and paint qualty needs improvement.

Review

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.


Best Features

I love the ride! I hesitate to sell because newer cars that I can afford don't have the same smooth ride. Seats are very comfortable. 6 way power seats help a short person like myself "fit" into the driver position. I really like the fan, radio etc buttons on the steering wheel.


Worst Features

Better quality paint and change horn to the "usual" configuration on a steering wheel. DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE ALTERNATOR!!!!!
