1998 Oldsmobile Regency 4dr Sedan


Had this 9 years, inherited it at 8000 miles. Great car, only problems were using the GM alcohol based "red" coolant which dissolved plastic parts like the intake manifold, etc. Once I switched to the old "green" glycol based stuff the problems stopped. Great comfort, low gas mileage, better that a lot of compacts. Good stereo, leather seats, reliable. I want to buy another Olds, but they're gone.

Best Features

Comfortable seats. Really fit 6 people if need be. Decent trunk. Good stereo. Handled well. Big and comfortable w/good mileage.

Worst Features

Some of the interior plastic stuff starts buckling in heat. Door switches loosen, fall out. Leather seat made easier to maintain. Didn't seem to matter what I used, they still started to crack and fall apart.
