Used Oldsmobile cars are starting to become more difficult to find since the brand was discontinued in 2004. It spelled the end of a long history, Oldsmobile having been founded in 1897 and being a GM brand for most of its existence, since 1908. Over the years, Oldsmobile built more than 35 million cars over more than a century, nearly half of them at GM’s Michigan plant, right here in the USA. Now, vintage Oldsmobile models are rare and expensive and there aren’t that many recent-model Oldsmobile used cars to buy left out there anymore either. However, they are still cheap and there is a decent choice if you’re shopping for less than $5,000 used. Finding a cheap Oldsmobile second-hand near you might be more of a challenge if you don’t live in a city because they are not that commonplace anymore. If you want to see if you can find and buy an Oldsmobile near you, start your search on the internet - many people buy Oldsmobile cars online because they’re easier to track down this way. It’s the easiest way to shop for a car.
If your favorite Oldsmobile for sale in the USA is a vintage ’50s Super 88 Holiday coupe, good luck finding one - and remember that it will be anything but cheap. The cheapest old Oldsmobile models are typically the ’90s and 2000s models but when they get much older than that, they start to become collectible and their values increase. Start your search on CarBuzz’s used-cars search page and set your search radius to find an Oldsmobile near you - but be prepared to increase it if you can’t find anything suitable. You might have to travel to view the Oldsmobile of your liking. And travel you must, because the internet is good for finding cars, but you still have to test drive them before you buy.
Always make sure that any car you buy has a vehicle history and a complete service history. A properly maintained Oldsmobile can continue to give you excellent service for many years to come. Oldsmobiles are generally reliable but there was a major problem with GM’s Passlock in GM cars of those years and the worst-affected Oldsmobile was the Olero. For the Olero’s entire production run from 1999 to 2004, starting problems due to a faulty Passlock system are common. This problem also affected late-’90s Intrigues. The Intrigue also tends to suffer from noisy air-conditioning systems. Some 1999 Silhouettes have problems with failing intake manifold gaskets. If you can, take an expert along to check out the car with you and join you on the test drive. It’s best to avoid cars with a salvage title.
