Great car!

This was my first Olds. Had 58k when I got it and it was a great car. Handled great, roomy, very comfortable with lots of room in front and in back. Leather seats, AM/FM cassette & CD player. CD player was glitchy and I quit using it. The digital information control was also intermittent & giving error codes. Other than that it was a solid car and great to drive. I took it on several road trips and wow...500 miles to empty, avg 35 mpg on a long trip with air ride for added comfort. I was amazed and loved this car. Not so great to look at...a big boat but oh so nice to own!

ONE OF THE BEST OLDSMOBILES TO OWN IS THE OLDS 98!

I OWN 4 OLDSMOBILE NINETY EIGHTS. I HAVE 2 1991 OLDS 98, A 1992 OLDS 98 AND A 1996 OLDS 98 AND PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS BEGGING ME TO SALE THEM BUT I WONT. THIS CAR WAS THE LAST CAR OF OLDS ROYALTY. ITS ROOMY AND SPACIOUS, GETS GOOD GAS MILEAGE AND THEY ARE EASY TO MAINTAIN. EVEN TODAY IN 2017 THIS CAR HOLDS ITS OWN UP AGAINST THE NEWER CADILLACS AND BUICKS.

Pinch me, am I dreaming?

The car stickered over $30,000 new. Bought my '96 with 171,000 miles(Arizona Car) for only $800! Replaced a/c compressor($430 total)and that's it! Car rides and looks brand new. Every option ever offered back then. I'm hooked even on the quirky styling. I've owned(when I had money)foreign luxury cars which cost an arm and a leg to fix. This car gets honest 29 mpg HWY! Told by previous owner he had to sell and get out of town fast. Seems from googling him he was a public defender on the run from the very law he worked for. Glad he had babied my baby with tender loving care. My next car will be the same. (PS...If you buy one check to see if it has "brake transaxle shift interlock" option...make sure to ALWAYS apply parking brake before putting in park or car will not move out of park or turn over in neutral. Unhook battery, re-hook after minute, to reset computer. You'll be OK then. I never knew about this "option," which is mandatory now. At least that's what they say on google.
