Pros: "Good power, quality and ride"

Cons: "Weak design in intake manifold o-ring."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This is my third Olds 88, but the LSS has all the options. It has been a nice car with a good ride, power and overall reliability. The only caution that I would give is that 3800 engines have a faulty design their intake manifolds. With high mileage the o-ring around the water jacket can leak and cause the engine to hydrolock. If you aren't sure, just replace the manifold before it has a problem and you should be good to go."

"Oldest in college. bought from inlaw at 11K in 2001 and now has 130K miles and still runs great. city mpg is around 20-21, but hiway mpg is 27-28. A/C is cold; other systems continue to work as when first bought car! Too bad Olds is gone - this car dispelled my ideas on US cars being many notches below imports."

"The car was purchased new in'97. I cannot say enough about the integrity and reliability of the car. Contemplating about a new car, but I would hate to give it up."
