1999 Oldsmobile Eighty-Eight 4dr Sedan
My 1999 Oldsmobile 88 was my grandparents car and was given to my twin brother and I as our first car with only 42k miles on it!
We have been driving it for about 5 years now and it has 69k miles on it.
They 88 has been outstandingly reliable, we have under $1200 of maintenance into it in 5 years.
We had the common intake leak and the power antenna is stuck up but else it is perfect.
I use to hate how it looked but it has grown on me.
It is factory Crimson Red and I have white strip tires on it, it looks sharp and stands out among today's cars.
The ride and handling is like a marshmallow, but that is often a good thing.
It is plenty quick too!
I also enjoy the huge trunk!
Decent power, marshmallow soft ride, good radio, excellent visibility, looks out of the ordinary.
The interior panel fitment is horrendous, it has
panel gaps every where.
Uselessly low headrest.
Back seat is cramped.
