I LOVE THIS CAR BUT.....

1993 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight Royale LS 4dr Sedan

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!!!!!
