"I have a Bright White 88 with 168000 miles and it runs like new. I bought this car used in 2000 and the only thing I had to change was the radiator and some cylinder head gaskets. Great Car. Love the mileage and engine. This car's a BOSS."

"Think twice about buying this vehicle with the 3800 engine in it. There is a problem with the upper intake manifold at the EGR valve "burning" through. This causes coolant to leak into the engine. It has happened 3 times on the one we own -@ 42K miles and again at 90K & 125K. Dealer could not explain this. Repair will cost $500+."

"This full-size sedan matches many compacts for mileage at 26 MPG mixed (city / hwy). 138,000 miles with minimal maintenance surprises. GM got the 4-speed auto trans right on this model - no issues. Good power to pass on highways, acceptable handling with a comfortable ride, quiet and comfortable on long trips. Six seatbelts and yes, you can carry six people (as long as they get along real well!) Huge trunk. Unexciting styling."
