I love this used car!!!!

Vehicle: 1997 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight LS 4dr Sedan

Comfortable with no problems at all. We bought it with 30K miles on it and have had not one problem in the past year. My Mom swears it is a Cadillac because of the comfort and pick up. We do change the oil and take good care of the car...it is a great ride!




I love this car but...

Vehicle: 1997 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight LS 4dr Sedan

I bought this used as a second car for the family. I love it and it's totally fun to drive. We also have a 1993 Buick Park Avenue. It's the same car only a little older. I like the updates on the Old's 88 but i'm having some old car type problems. The anti theft system engaged and had to be bypassed. The lighters don't work so I can't plug things in. The fuel sending unit rusted. $600. There just seems to be a lot of little things. I'm not sure if it's because the car is old. My other old car (the Park Ave) didn't have these problem - from what I recall. This car feels like luxury when you drive it. THAT's nice!




American classic

Bought as dealer exec car with 5,500 miles on it. Big brawny rugged reliable American classic. It's a shame Olds is no longer made. We had a Pontiac 6000 LE for 15 years which was a great car. When we looked for its replacement, this Olds 88 was even better.
