1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Brougham 5.0 305 V8 Regular
Great reliable car and a sleeper on the speed
The car has had very few problems.
I preformed the basic maintenance which included belts and filters.
The interior is staring to wear a bit.
The master cylinder went out at 110000.
The car itself is great.
It looks good and it turns heads on the road with people telling me nice car and I love the notch-back window.
The car is very peppy for being the 305 v8 it gets up and goes.
Its very reliable and gets great gas mileage for a v8.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass is certainly way, way, too small to be considered a land yacht, and it is not even big enough to be considered large by todays standards now that they are making cars larger again. It is a handsome car and back in 1987, I was only seventeen at the time and had the opportunity to buy one. I was seven years old and the transmission indicator no longer worked, looking back it looked a bit grubby, but still handsome and I wish I had purchased it. However, I eventually purchased a 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass which was wine-colored it was so beautiful and I miss my baby. I had to move to England and even though I could have taken it over, I did not and I do regret it.
This type of car is a good car to have because it is big enough to look stylish, but is certainly not a large car, I would say it is medium sized instead of large to medium or large.
Anyway it is interesting to see how the Cutlasses were downsized progressively over the years. The pre-1978 Cutlasses were much larger than these with their 112 inch wheelbase, whereas these had a 108 inch wheelbase.
