I bought this car two years ago with 32K miles on it. It was owned by two elderly sisters and they upgraded to a convertible and traded the Toronado. It's been a great car, fun to drive, good gas mileage, extremely comfortable and good looking, and definitely unique. Maintenenance has been easy, the only problems have been related to age, not poor design. The only major things that were replaced were the electronic dash, tires, a few sensors on the motor and hood struts.

Awesome car, I first experienced a Toronado as a pedestrian when I was 10 in 1968. I said I would have one some day and now I do. A Ford dealer had this slated for a demolition derby. The body was in good shape and it was undercoated. The K frame was coming apart and was repaired with u-bolts and high carbon steel, stronger now than OEM. Replaced the struts, windsheld, etc. Had it for a run on the highway, its getting 35 mpg on a 25 mile loop, at 55 mph. Just gets better with distance. Fast too 0-60 in about 4 secs. Cranberry color with silver trim, I painted the wheels/side trim in gloss gold and it's so sharp I gotta wear shades.

The Toronado is truly one of the great ones from Oldsmobile. I've owned the car from a pup and it now has over 171,000 miles. The 3800 V6 is strong as can be and never has given any problems. This car was way ahead of its time and is still a pleasure to drive. It is one of the best cars I've owned.

I bought the car with 104,000 miles
and it now has 195,000. The only
problem I ever had was that the a/c
compressor froze and had to be
replaced. The car still runs perfect
and I will keep it but I just bought a
1992 Trofeo and 94,000 miles just so
that I can get another of these great
cars while they're still able to be
found. If you can find one, buy it,
1992 was the last year.

What can I say? She has over $150K and
still screams. I can throw her into the
curves and she just hugs the road. I
love her and much as my dog. she's a
bit tired and the level ride cut out
butr there are plenty of used parts out
there - but they aren't cheap. She's a
classic beauty and is everything I
could want in a car.
