97 olds ls

Vehicle: 1997 Oldsmobile LSS 4dr Sedan

Purchased car 4 years ago here in Tucson with 90,000 miles for $3000. Have driven it 45,000 miles and kept it well maintained. These cars are an outstanding value in terms of cost per mile. They are comfortable, fast and fully equipped. Fuel mileage has been 30 mpg highway and 25 city consistently with the AC running. GM parts are readily available and service/repair techs have seen them before. They're not exotic cars. Probably in these four years I've spent another 2,000 to 3,000 on tires, brakes, struts, and ordinary upkeep to accomplish those 45,000 miles. If you must have a new car there are plenty of dealers. If not there are plenty of used ones to shop. You might make a really good deal.

Vehicle: 1997 Oldsmobile LSS 4dr Sedan

I bought my Olds LSS with 94k miles on it as replacement for my trusty commuter Olds Cutlass Supreme, which died on me at 230k. I didn't really like it at first because of very soft suspension. But ones got used to, it became positive future since I commute 3 hours a day. Now I have 169k miles and car still going strong. The only problem I had with this car was AC clutch. 500 dol. and 2 days later car is back on the road and performing well. I should mention synthetic oil change every 6000 miles. And I'm getting around 28mpg on freeway. GM can build reliable, efficient, luxury cars and you can buy them cheap..




Solid choice

Vehicle: 1997 Oldsmobile LSS 4dr Sedan

we bought this as a nine year old car with only 75,000 km on it (42,000 miles). it has been a very good car with only routine maintenance and very few minor repairs ie brakes/wheel bearing etc. very good gas mileage for size of car and is comfortable to drive as well. not the most "exciting" car to look at but does look sharp when it is shined up.




Wonderful car

I think this vehicle is the best car I have ever driven. I can't think of one thng that I dislike on my car. If you ever get a chance, buy one. They don't make cars like this anymore.

I love this car! It has never let me down. Never been towed and never fails to start and run perfectly. Safe, comfortable, and fun. Great ergonomics, everything about it is convenient. Lower insurance rates than most comparable cars.
