1997 Oldsmobile LSS 4dr Sedan w/Supercharger


Review

Have a 1997 Olds LSS 32,000 miles. Need tail lenses for both sides. Some cosmetic stuff inside. Vacuum diagrams and stuff for heat/AC ventilation problems. Defrost, Lower, Floor. Not switching over to other levels. Steel hub covers not the plastic kind. Parts for this car are hard to find.

Review

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.


Best Features

This car is used on the highway a lot so the cruise is a necessity. AC works satisfactorily (Tucson). Radio/CD and Speakers are great. The comfortable seats enable long travel legs and the fuel mileage/tank capacity (18 gals) let you run way over 400 miles with good reserve


Worst Features

My singular complaint about this car is the tendency to overheat during steep mountain upgrades in hot weather, such as Mt Lemmon here in Tucson in July. Engine cooling could have been better under demanding conditions.

Review

i love this car, i heard there were only 10,000 made w/the supercharger, i wish olds was still in buisness!


Best Features

super charger, i beat an 07' pontiac grand prix, in a 1/4 mile race, the grand prix had 3800 as well, but i guess no super charger!


Worst Features

The only thing i can think of is a little better mpg, but then again i should probably keep my foot of it at times! it's a great car!

Review

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..


Best Features

affordable luxury, reliability, power,


Worst Features

GM - Bring Oldsmobile back!

Review

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.


Best Features

reliability, fuel economy for full size car. comfortable to drive.


Worst Features

seat belt operation/cup holder location always opening cup holders when putting on seat belt.
