I bought this as a first car and love it. It is very roomy and has great pick up with the V6. I burn all my friends. I love the comfortable ride, the swaying by the loose supsension is eh but without that there would be no ride. I did replace the altenator but that was it. Otherwise everything was fine. I crashed it, everything is good except for bumpers, fenders, radiator. I'm thinking of replacing the $1,500 in parts instead of selling it for $500, what a nice car, everyone wants it. The trunk is huge! Take this car, you won't be dissapointed.
I just got this car about a month ago, it has 129,000 miles and drives like a Caddy. I paid $1000 for it. The 3800 series engine it has is an easy access and roomy engine compartment to get around in. Fixing it myself is now an option if problems do come up. The only problem is the door seals have shrunk a little and you get a little wet in the car wash.
Bought the car at $1400 with around
249000 miles (original motor). I'm
very happy with the car. It rides
smooth and quiet. I've had no major or
minor repairs besides normal
maintence. Car still gets 22-24mpg.
The paint quality does need
Bought the car with 98,000 miles for my 16 year old son. It has been an outstanding first car; relatively cheap insurance, and a great buy for $1500. No problems whatsoever, it does a fantastic job of getting him to school and to his fast food resturant job! It should last him through his college years. Very pleased!
My issues regarding my Olds Royale are
not about the car itself but the
dealership who sold me the lemon. I
bought the vehicle with 68,000 miles
on it in 1996. The dealership has a
120 point inspection check off shees
but it did not prevent the $4,000 that
had to be invested in the vehicle in
the first two years with me. I was
also making monthly payments on it of
almost $300! I could really go on but
there is not enough space
here...Beware of the dealership you
