Traded a '95 Eighty Eight for my '99 Eighty Eight with exactly same equipment. It's simple style, comfortable ride, and very efficient gas mileage make it an excellent fit for someone with "conservative" values. Although my brother says it looks like a "grandpa's car" (and I'm not one), my Eighty Eight has been a superb value for my hard-earned dollars.

Super Value, last of an american favorite. I purchased my 1999 Olds 88 with 96,000 miles on it. I travel a lot thus I have put 17,000 plus miles on in 6 months. The car has had NO PROLBEMS only gas and oil. The seats are like driving your sofa around town. The 205HP engine scoots pretty good.I have had Bimmers all my life but was very impressed with my 88. THE OLDS ROLLS!!!!

Wonderful Car

by from Knoxville on July 25, 2007

This was the first dealer bought vehicle I have ever owned and she was such a joy to have. Extremely comfortable, I had very few problems with her. I only wish they still made them.

1999 olds LS

by from Sebring, FLA. on June 3, 2006

I purchased this car in 2003, with the LSS pkge. and am extreemly satisfied with it. The performance and fuel economy have been beyond my expectations. I have a few more rattles than I anticipated.

by from Grand Rapids, MI on July 27, 2006

Nice car. only thing I do not like is the turning radius. Otherwise, fits 5 people comfortably, six people a squeeze, especially with two car seats. good family car.

a car not bought

by from central gulf coast Florida on June 11, 2014

I chose not to buy this car mostly because it smelled bad . I was also not comfortable in the split bench seat. Lastly to me it wasn't worth what the dealer was charging for it.

It drives incredibly well, and I've never had a problem with how the car runs. However, the ac has gone out two times in the past two years, the windows usually don't roll down in front, and never in the back. Car is very comfortable for long rides. Handles speed bumps and bad roads well.
