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.


Favorite 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.


Suggested Improvements

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.
