Pinch me...am i dreaming?

Vehicle: 1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency Elite 4dr Sedan

The guy needed money bad...the ad said,"excellent, $800"(no picture). Took a chance and a year later I'm stupified. How can a 173,000 mile car be the finest I've EVER driven(used to sell used cars, both import and domestic), let alone now owned! The thing still looks brand new. Bigger, better than a Lexus. 30 MPG hwy! NOT a rattle. Trans "like new"! Everything works! $30,000.00 new! Even had 4 Michelins on it! I've even grown to love the quirky boxey styling! One guy told me they are THE "hot", under the radar, bargain find in used cars. I've already said too much to drive up the prices on these beauties. I've owned Saabs, BMW's(630's), Caddies, and Peugeots. This beats them ALL. Pinch me!!!

218,000 miles and still fantastic!

This car has been unbelievably reliable from day one. It had about 22,000 miles on it when we bought it. We had AC/heater problems for a few years only to find out that the hose was clamped too tight which made the hose collapse. Easy fix and has worked great since. The driver's seat now has a tear, but all the other seats are like new! I drive over 100 miles per day, and don't hesitate to use this as my daily driver and on long trips. The car cleans up very nicely and gets hand waxed twice a year. 30 mpg is typical, new cars just can't touch the gas mileage and the comfort of this car. The ride is equal to a Lincoln. All the extra comfort items are wonderful too.

I'll NEVER sell this beauty. They don't make them as roomy and powerful anymore. Like floating on a cloud.

The Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight is GM at its best. It will run forever, I just flipped over 190,000 miles. I average 26 miles to the gallon in an area with many hills.




Excellent car: too bad olds

My 1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight is roomy, comfortable, and stylish. It is the last of the fabulous full-size cars from Oldsmobile in the mold of the classic American highway cruiser. And I netted 28 mph from the peppy V6 engine on my most recent long-distance trip. I'll never part with it. The body and interior have held up wonderfully. My car is still like new. I'll put money into it to keep it alive under the hood for as long as they make parts for it.




Go for it

I love my car. I understand initially there were quite a few quirks, but by the time I bought it, with 90,000 miles, they had all been worked out. I've had relatively few problems with the car, even with the high mileage. I love all the bells and whistles, and there are a lot on this car. A few leaks have cropped up lately and seem to be difficult for repairmen to find.
