Summary:

A car worth owning

Faults:

I have just purchased this vehicle and have had to repair a few things due to neglect. The cost of repair has been about one-hundred dollars, the items repaired/replaced are as follows: Power window motor (left front), Idle Air Control valve, windshield wiper arm, battery terminals. The A/C functions well, as does most every electrical option on the car. I am so far very pleased with the condition of this car with consideration to its age and lack of certain necessary maintenance.

General Comments:

A very luxurious vehicle, comparable to a Cadillac in amenities. I especially enjoy the body style.

Summary:

A beautifully designed and appointed luxury car

Faults:

This car is amazingly designed, but I do have a problem with the serpentine belt coming off when I drive through deep puddles. Other than that, it is remarkable.

General Comments:

The leather interior and the chrome appointments in and on this car show a great deal of design prowess!!! Well done Oldsmobile!!! That it moves effortlessly on the highway is another positive of this car!
