1997 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight LS 4dr Sedan

Review

We bought this car to replace our aging '87 Delta 88, which we decided to keep, and still have! Just as the '87 is, this car is a sleeper of a bargain as a family car. They are as reliable as any car can get, We consistently get 33mpg on the highway. It rides like a luxury car, and has the smooth quiet power that everyone enjoys. We live in the snow belt of upstate NY, and this car never ever spins a wheel any time! It's just so sure footed, no need for alll wheel drive here! I recommend any of these cars that have been well maintained. Used ones are plentiful, and cheap!

Favorite Features

The 3800 motor, a legendary motor for reliability, mileage for power available. Not many small cars give the mileage these cars do (33mpg) for the amount of power available for six passengers. It's not a state of the art complicated motor, no overhead cams to adjust, etc. Pretty simple.

Suggested Improvements

Well, they don't make em any more, so the point is moot. I would add more chrome, more styling accents to the otherwise plain body style. Sad to say but the '87 when it was new, was a better lookin car.
