1998 Oldsmobile 88 3.8 from North America
An excellent car. Wish I still had one. May not be a Mustang, but just as good
Upper intake manifold, brake lines, water pump, and exhaust broke off.
This car was an amazing first car. At my school it was the notorious 88.
The rides were always comfortable, the interior and exterior looked much like an old lady car, but to me it was luxury driving. It is like sitting in a La-Z-Boy and having a steering wheel in front of you.
The engine had more than enough power when you needed it. It kept up with the original Oldsmobile rocket tradition. The intake did go on it, a major flaw on the 3800 II series, and there were other problems related to its age and mileage.
Sadly my time with "Sally" my green Oldsmobile was short lived, due to a collision with an 09 Subaru Outback, totaling both, but if not for the airbag going off, I could've driven it still.
It was a boat and was decent on gas, averaging roughly 25 per gallon.
If you get a chance, buy one. I know I definitely would, given the chance.
A great first car for a teenage driver.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It's a shame you lost your Oldsmobile, but at least now there is one less Subaru on the road.

Sadly no, that Subaru will be back on the road. It was an 09 Outback, and only had an axle broken and some body damage. The first thing he said when I was pulled out of my car was "what a shame, I just got my car outta the shop, I just totaled it a few weeks ago", proving Subaru drivers aren't the brightest bunch, hence them owning Subarus.
