Pros

A really comfortable ride and really sporty. I leave people on the road speechless on how fast it is when it takes off!

Cons

Nothing mechanically wrong  so far!
Rear drums, premium required, no moon roof on mine and no driver information center.

Not Active

The "sleeper" — Pros; Love the classic Oldsmobile styling, motor is bullet proof, a lot of space, great mpg 16-19 city 25-30 highway. Cons; wish it didn't require premium (due to Supercharger) wish it had rear disc not drum and wish it was a 97 instead of a 96 because of extra goodies 97-99 had. Maintenance on car is really low I only had to replace the rear air shocks because they were leaking. Power antenna not working so need to replace And passenger recliner motor really weak. which I need to replace, fog-lights stopped working. Other than that A really looked over vehicle and love the fact that I never see these on the road, I mean RARELY!!! I maybe see one or two every month and a half or so :)

Pros

fun.

Cons

nothing

Olds 88 — sleeper car. cheap, fast, reliable, roomy, comfortable, and really throws down. wish it was rear wheel drive, frankly, but im quite happy with it. its not ugly, but its not attractive, very just....bland. decent mileage, decent throwdown, the car makes me happy. get one. theyre cheap.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
