1997 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Best Features

Classic brawny but sleek styling. Spacious comfort and reliability. The rear window extending over trunk style has been imitated by many later cars. Column-mounted gear shift.


Worst Features

Make front side windows totally unobstructed without the small vent- like bars (apparently necessary for speakers in front of doors).

1997 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 4dr Sedan


Review

This has been a wonderful car. In
going from the comfort and power of a
Cadillac Sedan Deville (used) to a
smaller car I was a bit concerned. But
it didn't take me long to fall in love
with this vehicle. The V6 Engine has
plenty of get up and go and if I had my
foot to the pedal I could have taken
that Firebird! As far as reliability,
I follow routine maintenance and have
no problems except for a faulty gas
gage. I would recommend this car to
anyone if they can still find one that
was taken good care of.
