Great Car — Great commuter car! Loves to drive in the snow. Comfortable. 200K miles still running strong! Survived 3 Deer Strikes! Unique appearance, stands out in the crowd (I hate driving some unrecognizable box that looks like everything from Japan). Hopefully i can get another 100K out of her.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Unique, safe, decent MPG

Cons: Getting hard to find body parts in recycling yards (Reuslt of Deer Strikes)

1988 Olds Tornado — this was actually my brothers car but i drove it for about a year and a half. it got about 22 mpg, with the 3800 v-6, this car ran really well, handled awsome, had tons of gadgets. most of which didnt work but the car had 283,000 miles on it. motor and trans is still originall never even rebuilt. i had a great time with this car, it is my second favorite car that ive owned. if i come across another one and have the money to buy i definitly will. for repairs, i only replaced an altnater.

Pros: great car all around

Cons: other than the plastic on the body none

Oldsmobile's Version Of The Cadillac Eldorado... — I've had this car since March of '99. Hit a couple deer. Gave it a paint job. Gone quite a while without driving it a few times. Always starts right up.

Pros: unique.  

Cons: old.

Luxurious Boat By mmeek

My parents owned a 1992 Oldsmobile Toronado several years back. It was fun to drive (as I was only 17 at the time), but was huge in every respect. It had a big V8 that guzzled gas and enough leg roo... Read More

Review By Rocketman1966

Good engine and transmission. It does torque steer. Rough body and paint has a tendency to fail. Leather seats fail if not taken care of. Read More

The 1987 Oldsmobile Toronado was a rare car to begin with, which meant finding parts to keep it going was tough. I bought it with 114K miles and sold it with 277K miles and it was still running stron... Read More

Best Car Ever By burk0282

This was my first car, and will probably always remain my favorite. Sturdy build, and the ride is fantastic- rides so low to the ground you feel like you're driving a racecar. For a mid- 80s vehic... Read More

This boat is a classic. Made back when cars were suppose to offer a comfortable ride. Bench seating in the front makes for great dates. ;) Not a fan of the 'red' or rather orange paint, but still shar... Read More
