1992 Oldsmobile 88 3.8L from North America
I would recommend this to anyone who wants a comfortable solid and reliable performer
I've read all of the other reviews and the repairs to this car have been typical.
Over it's life I've replaced two water pumps and one alternator/generator.
Had an engine mount replaced at around 250,000.
CV joints & struts. Brakes a couple of times.
NEVER have had any exhaust work done (and I live in a Northern climate with corrosives used for snow removal).
Non-power (no lumbar) passenger seat uncomfortable on long trips.
Can get up to 30 MPG on long trips.
Bottom line... after owning this beaut for fourteen years, I've put a lot of miles on this car, taken care of it, and it has served me faithfully. I've had several Oldsmobiles and this car by far has been the best I've ever owned. Right now at 268,000 the transmission is finally giving out (slow to shift into third and then overdrive). I plan to have the transmission rebuit. I would definitely buy another Olds 88 if I could find a low mileage car. It's been great!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
