Year / Model Reviewed:
1999 Oldsmobile 88
Nice squishy ride. Makes bumps feel like riding a roller coaster.
Trunk space is amazing though I wish it where flat.
6 seat belts
More power than a Jap Econo box.
Stands out from other cars. Interesting styling.
Awesome fuel millage. I get 24mpg avg.
Not very much interior room for the size of the car.
Windshield wipers scratched my windshield.
Worlds softest and vague steering.
This is an extremely reliable car. Has a wonderful but very squishy ride. Has some power but it is certainly not fast.
I got it with 44,000 miles on it and it is still in nearly brand new condition. It is the base model so there are not any parts on it to break. Though it does have a block heater which surprised me a lot.
The handling is absolutely awful.
The stereo is very good, much better than the one in my parents BMW 740il. It is the only Olds 88 I have every seen with a CD player from the factory.
The car is built very well but the pannel gaps are massive! There are many places where pannels and covers are to short. I can fit my whole hand between the front door and the dash on both sides!
I really don't know why every body thinks this car has a lot of room. It has the least room of any car my family has owned since I was born. The leg room in the back is awful. The seats don't move back far enough either for even a 6ft tall person.
I would highly recommend this car to any College student or any one who needs and inexpensive car to operate.
Not recommended for any one who cares about how a car drives.
