1981 Oldsmobile Delta 88 royal brougham 307 V8 from North America
The great "old school" car
Failed smog test few times
Front suspension ball joints/bushings due to the age/ mileage. They still lasted much much longer then in the newer cars.
Sagged roof headliner.
Trunk lid strut supports do not work.
Low mpg, long braking distance, high gas prices, and small parking spaces make this excellent car more difficult to use now days as a commuter/ everyday driver.
Exceptionally smooth ride +++
Strong body (was rammed by Ford Crown Victoria) but was minimally damaged and kept going
Nice body styling makes it handsome despite huge size.
Lots of trunk space.
Easy to use hand and foot controls.
Easy to troubleshoot and repair; many parts were purchased from the junkyard and chain stores; minimal ****ing electronics to worry about.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
