Review

Inherited this car from grandparents at a bit under 100k miles...drove it constantly, first highway and then mostly horrendous DC city traffic, while there were some repairs (water pump, strut, new brake lines, few electronics) I loved the car, and the Engine was always roaring to go. Only reason I am not still driving it at around 150k is because a tree fell on it in a storm last week. Would buy another but I want something a bit flashier :D


Favorite Features

Engine, comfy bench seats

Review

Bought the car new. It has now 161,000 miles. The car is very comfortable and reliable. Even after 161,000 miles the engine burns no oil and transmission works like new. I installed a external oil cooler which keeps the temperature of the fluid below 160 F. I change oil+ STP every 3000 miles and replace transmission fluid about 2 - 3 times a year by pumping out 1 gallon (thats all one can pump out through the dipstick). Repairs: Cracked head, leaky bypass tube.Replaced trunk lid springs twice. Even now excellent mileage: 29 mpg/ on highway. Best car I ever had.


Favorite Features

Smooth, quite car with plenty acceleration.Compared to my other car, I appreciate the variable ratio power steering and smooth throttle response.


Suggested Improvements

The AC outlets don't sweep the head space, leaving hot air at the ceiling. I added scoops at the side AC outlets directing the air upwards.

Review

This car is awesome. I have owned it for only 6 months now. I bought it was 203,000 miles. It was VERY well taken care for. I couldn't believe how well the people before me took such great care of it. It does have high millage however it still drives like it only has 10,000miles on it. However I am having 1 small problem. I can't seem to adjust the speeds on the heater blower, not sure why! Other than that I would totally buy another just like it. I have never had it break down on me.


Favorite Features

The gas millage is great. It handles wonderfully, Lots of room, Good sound for for the stock radio. Never had a problem with the engine nor the body. Just minnor things such as the switch for the heater blower doesn't seem to want to work well. Also blows heat out the back for backseat riders


Suggested Improvements

Would be nice to have extra upgrades on it from its age such as more indicators on tire pressure, Over all WONDEREFUL CAR all aroun

Review

I have owned this car for 7 years. It has GM's legendary 3.8 Liter V6. Puts out 200 spunky horses. Nice space in the cabin. No cheap plastic console to sit next to. This is a great car. It is no "accident" that GM hit the skids shortly after they stopped making Oldsmobiles. The car has rubber cushions on the bumpers - not just a cheap piece of plastic waiting for the first nick. Until GM can (or anyone) can build a car this great again - I will just keep running it.


Favorite Features

Nice glass area for good visibility, good pick up, really nice style, body mounted mirrors not just shoved where a window should be. Comfortable, well designed space.


Suggested Improvements

None
