A True Sports Sedan by Prescott from Lakeville, Minnesota on 12/04/2005. Trim: 1997 Oldsmobile LSS, Owned 1 year.
Pros: The supercharged engine is awesome. Right after I bought the car I took it to the drag strip and ran a 14.7@93mph and 6.4 seconds from 0-60mph, bone stock!! It will smoke most stock Mustangs. Since it has the same engine as the GTP, the aftermarket is HUGE! With just $3000 worth of mods, I can be running with Vipers and Vetts of the same year. Handling is good and is even better with Monroe shocks. I like the seats as I can drive for over 6 hours without discomfort. The features are great and the car is very reliable.
Cons: The brakes could be better. The rotors start to warp after a lot of 100mph quick stops.
Overall review: This is the best vehicle I’ve owned. This seems like the only car that can take my aggressive driving habits. Most high performance vehicles are a maintenance nightmare. The LSS is not. It drives smoothly, idles smooth, the transmission shifts smooth and quick, and it never bogs down in hot weather with the A/C running. A few years back I had to rent an Accord for a long trip. After 500 miles of my diving it started to bog down and after 2000 miles the engine light came on. Now when I took an even longer trip with the LSS, it seemed to get better the longer I drove it. I purchased it a year ago with 107,000 miles on it and a 3yr/36,000 mile warranty that I purchased from the dealer. Now with 122,000 miles, I’ve never even used the warranty. GM should have kept this line. But, it was the consumers sheepish following of the whole “imports are best” BS that killed the line. And BS it is because the LSS outperforms and is more reliable than the imports.
