Perfect Car For Someone Who Likes Big Cars And High Performance. — This car has been in my family since two years after I was born. We needed a car with space for a growing family. My mom, who had recently given up her turbocharged Sabb, decided she wanted something with high performance. The engine is phenominal, the torque, even after 15 years, still set me deep into my seat. The only major repair I remember on this car was to replace the air compressor. The car was shaking so badly on the way to the shop that my mom orderd a taxi & tow truck to get us there. There were minor things like springs baeaking and a minor fender bender, but nothing to make us replace it. Cars like this need to be let out to run every once in a while. If you drive at low speeds all the time, this is not the car for you. Its gas milage improved after a 300+ mile road trip to the Outer Banks going 80 mph down the highway. 35 mpg for that trip. This car is like driving a boat on asphalt. Its big, floaty, but with extremely responsive steering. This car is much more fun to drive than a normal 4 door sedan by miles. Its just very particular about the driver.

The Worst Thing That Ever Happened To Me — I put well over $6000 into this car over a two year period of time. Ultimately, the transmission went out forty miles after having put a new engine in it. That's when I cut my losses and got rid of it, after having it two years, driving it 6K miles, and puting $6K in to it.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned. — he most reliable Car I have ever had the pleasure of owning. - THIS is the car, the colour, the rims, an exact match to the one I had owned... for 6 years!! I was the second owner, and picked it up at 90kms on the OD. The 3.8 engine, when well maintained is almost bull...et-proof. The transmission WAS bullet-proof. This car only ever saw mid to high grade fuel. Oil change every 3 months and regular tire rotations. The ride was great, the concert sound stock stereo was awesome. I was looking forward to owning the next generation of Olds 88's when the news came down... they killed the Olds line... >.< and to be honest, I think my car hard that, because shortly there after the engine quit

Free One We Fixed — Got this car from an individual that had given up on repairing it, she gave it away to get it out of her yard. I took it home and checked it out intending to scrap it. I replaced the coils and the car started and runs like a dream.
