1998 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight LS 4dr Sedan


Review

I absolutely loved my eighty-eight. Only problem I ever had with it was the water pump breaking and the belt breaking (only one-time fixes for me). I drove 12 hour round trips at least once a month and drove it every single day around town, to and from work, and across state for over 2 years and it always got me where I needed to go, no problems. Very reliable and dependable. I miss my Rico. I'd definitely buy another one if I got the chance.


Favorite Features

Comfort, easy driving, electric seats, dual climate controls, easy maintenance.


Suggested Improvements

None

Review

Robbed718 back. Update on the Oldsmobile Eighty Eight I bought with 53,000 miles in March of 2010 from the old lady whom lost her vision. The car now has 77,000 miles on it. I've had to replace a belt tensioner, tires and a sepentine belt since. Everything is still holding up good on the car, engine is still powerful and not bad on gas. (I get about 24mpg) . I think I could get 175-200K out of this baby. I'm gonna plan on it!


Favorite Features

Comfy Seats on Leather, Nice Audio, Nice Performance, Ergonomic


Suggested Improvements

Interior build quality ( a Problem of GM's for this era, but the bigger cars were more solid)

Review

For my first car its a good one. My grandparents had it before me and had no problems what so ever. It's fun to drive and handles well. It gets me through any kind of weather well. The only thing I've had to replace on it was the battery. I also changed out the tape player/radio with a CD player/radio. Over all its an awesome car. I would recommend it to anyone.


Favorite Features

Tons of space, good look to it.


Suggested Improvements

Nothing really.
