1996 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency Elite 4dr Sedan

Review

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.

Best Features

The comfortable seats, radio and AC/heater controls on steering wheel, cup holders in compartment, change holder, very good original paint job (Champagne color), huge trunk with net, passenger temperature control, pockets on back of front seats.

Worst Features

Side mounted battery (we switched ours finally after the cables kept loosening over time, no problems now), ac/heat not as powerful a Ford products.
