1997 Oldsmobile LSS 3.8 Series II from North America
Short in the ignition system - wow, needed entire dash ripped out, ignition replaced (new key fob), all new wiring from the steering column to the starter. There are no Olds dealers anymore, so the GM dealer ordered 88 LS parts - they did not work for obvious reasons.
Eats front brake pads for breakfast - no big deal, I change myself.
All in all, an excellent car. Bored out the intake box, K&N Filter, Flowmax muffler, will be re-chipping the computer soon. Quick enough to be dangerous, and fast enough to bounce off the rev limiter at 122 MPH. The traction control is bloody awful though. I always turn it off, so no big deal. My last car was an Audi 5000S with a 5 speed, and this Olds will eat it for breakfast.
Love the interior, comfortable and roomy. Needed to seriously upgrade the stereo, but that is just me. These cars are rare, so stock up on parts and keep it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
