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.

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..

And yes, there was a version of the Olds 88 that had a supercharged 3800. It was a trim level called the LSS I think. I don't think it was all that popular, but by the time it came out, interest in ...
