I bought this car with 60k on the odo. It is smooth, luxurious, reliable and cuts a low profile. It cost me $3650. That is an unbelievable deal for this much car. Highlights: very good leather, much better than average American car leather. Auto-dim mirror with built in digital compass. More room than you need. Very good freeway cruiser. Lowlights: grandpa car. But that's really a highlight. Teenagers don't drive these, so they're not beat down when you buy them used. grandpas tend to have garages and change the oil and filters too. If you see a low-miles Regency used, snap it up. You'll be anonymous on the road, and you won't regret it.

I loved my Oldsmobile. It is sharp
looking, and very classy in the
The one drawback to my thinking is that
it doesn't have the greatest pickup
I did have to replace a transmission,
and the replacement was faulty and had
to be replaced, but Olds stood behind
the car and I was satisfied.

Bought the car after a bad experience
with a '97 Chrylser LHS. We enjoy the
big car ride and we do a lot of road
travel. This one we rebuilt the
suspension with Monroe Reflex struts
and it made a huge difference in
handling. We get excellent gas
mileage (often in the 30mpg area)but
the power performance is only "ok."
The trunk opening is less than
desireable for a large car due to the
steeply slanted rear window. This was
a replacement for an '87 Olds 98
Touring Sedan that we loved, but there
are few similarities other than good
mileage and mechanical reliability.
We are nearing 100k miles and it still
seems very tight and few problems.
