Awesome Car — I recommend the olds 88 if you get a chance to own one of these cars. You will not be disappointed. Just be cautions for these cars are known to have a freak thing called a Hydraulic lock up where the radiator fluid blends with the motor oil and kills the motor

Safety.

Cons

Lack of performance.

Good For A High-school Car. — Performance: It's very lax in the acceleration aspect. Braking is good, better when they're wet. Handling is good because of the wide wheel base. It's fun if the gas tank is low; you accelerate faster. As for build quality, I haven't needed any work done, and everything has gone well. Appearance wise, it's not too pretty; it's a grandma car, what did we expect? It's not flashy but it's functional. Gas mileage is pretty bad in this economy, but I save money in not needing work.
