    This thing is a freaking TANK. First night on my way home from work in this thing and I hit a hairy intersection very infamous for collisions; gouged a guys door and only damaged my bumper. Months later, caught a fence and caved the front quarter panel; neither incident did anything to performance. I drive this car hard, long and fast, more than you would a sports car and the 2.8 V6 just keeps on cranking. No matter what I do, lights keep coming on and shutting off on the panel and yet this thing is so broken in she just keeps going. As my first car, I have to say, in durability and ruggedness, 7 out of 5 stars. In looks and style, 3 out of 5. Dependability, 4 out of 5. If you find one of these old girls in mint condition, wrap your hand around the steering wheel and dont let go; treat her right and shell always open wide. ;)

    Rides Like A Cadillac And Solid As A Tank — My 2nd car. Got if free, so that was a bonus. Engine sucks fuel pretty bad, but solid engine. Muffler was missing so had to get a new one. Otherwise, very reliable. Only problems were the door handle froze and broke when trying to open on a cold day. Easy to drive, and after a new stereo and speakers it was a job to ride in. Bench seat was great for more people, but not much storage in the car. Big trunk. Not a looker, but the 80's were...the 80's.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Very comfy front seat, and car is solid.

    Cons: Poor handling, fuel economy.

    For The $200 I Paid For It It Is A Good Car. — I like how the parts for this car are usually readily available and their cost is fair. I do like the ride and comfort of it. The only serious detriment is that when something electrical goes south it is not an easy fix like my old 70 Monte or 69 Dodge truck was.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Decent little car for running around town and even the smaller trips to the home store.

    Cons: The on board diagnostics for these years is seriously lacking. A professional scan tool can only do so much.

    Great To Take It Out In The Woods And Blow Up!! — performance isnt that great,how ever if u cut the muffler off and add a short ram,the acceleration gets better than stock.break sucks as does handling,but your not going to be able to "hug" the road in this type of car,there is a way to fix this tho.get smaller tires and some 3" lowering springs and you will beable to hug the road better then you would if you have the stock tires on or as a donk... the build quality is great with mine.appearance isnt great right now,but working on it.im about to smoke out the headlights/taillights and run blue HDS headlights.going to mod me a body kit for it.gas mileage suck when im driveing it in town..maintenance isnt bad,just the norm.love taking it though the mud and around corners!

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

    Pros: there isnt any!

    Cons: its a big body and doesnt have that great of performance

    Real First Car For Me, It Was A Great Daily Driver — I owned an '89 model (brown in color, inside and out) from 1997 - 2002. It came equipped with a 173 ci 2.8L V6, power windows, AC, AM/FM casette stereo. Stock rims, similar to those on the 1986 Chevrolet Camaro Sprot Coupe. It was just the right size for me, as I was a high school student at the time. It was pretty decent on gas mileage, and was good for extended driving. The paint was not of the best quality as GM had some poor results with their auto paints in the 1980's. Most likely due to tha age, the transmission had to be rebuilt in 1999. Car stayed in good running condition until it was totaled in a wreck (I was not driving the car at the time). I still have many good memories of the car. I wish I had a picture of the car, but alas, I do not know where any are at this present time.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Size, mileage, durability

    Cons: Paint, no cluster gage panel

    Old. — The car has no ac. It has manual windows. The car is actually white.The back windows dont even go all the way down. The thing has a old look and feel. The suspension is the only thing I like about it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The good milage.

    Cons: Looks ugly.

    Olds — It has a 3.3L V6 that is fuel injected and it has a auto transmission it is a little rough on the start up and it idles high but it smooths out after a while, it is a little rough around the edges some rust needs some work but I like it and for $400 bucks its not bad!

    Pros: Gas mileage and auto tranny

    Cons: a little rough

    The Crapy Oldsmobile — well the car wasnt the best thing to look at but it did get a chance to prove how valuable it was when it went all the way to south dakota and back without breaking down before we got home, and it wasnt the best car for the gas either

    Pros: started

    Cons: gas
