1997 Oldsmobile Regency 4dr Sedan


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.

Best Features

The sun roof, the combination CD/tape stereo, and (thanks to the revised suspenstion) good handling.

Worst Features

Better engine performance, go back to the opera coupe roof for better trunk opening and rear headroom.
