Pros

I LOVE GM's 3800 Series II Motor

Cons

It leaks a little oil

35

My Olds 88 — I love this car, amazing acceleration and handling. No major repair work until it hit about 180K miles, then the transmission needed to be replaced. It gets about 28 MPG and in the summer on the highway I can get around 35. Low maintenance and easy to service.

Pros

wonderful ride

Cons

transmission operation

55

Good Old Persons Car — Very comfortable interior and ride. I've ridden and drove this car for thousands of miles on road trips, and it is about as good as a road trip can get. Only problems are the automatic transmission has more of a tendency to down-shift going up hills at 75 mph than 60 mph. It seems the transmission is inefficient in transferring the torque from the engine to the tires.
