Review of the 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fun to drive. Powerful V6 engine. Comfortable seats. Nicely styled inside and out.

  • Cons

    Noise isolation is lacking. Some interior components lack refinement.

  • What's New for 1998

    Oldsmobile dumps the stodgy Cutlass Supreme for the Intrigue: a suave, sophisticated, sporty sedan designed to take on the best of the imports. Too bad refinement issues exist. Second-generation airbags are standard equipment.

Love this car and oldsmobile

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan

This was my first car, it now has over 230,000 miles on it. I have no major problem with it. It runs like the day I got it. I recommend this car to everybody I know




Trans failed at 11,000

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan

The transmission failed at 11,000 miles. I bought a new GM replacement which they will guarantee for 100,000 miles or 3 hears. It wasn't under warranty because it was in a garage for 10 years, so it cost me over $4000. The AC motor leaks and the dealer couldn't find the tool to replace it. But it drives well and smoothly and handles very well for a GM car.




Decent car

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan

Bought my 98 Intrigue at 64,000 in May of 09, got a great deal on it from the dealership I worked at. Old guy owned it before, hardly drove it. After owning it a year and a half it is still a nice car. The interior has held up nicely. 3 of the 4 power window motors went out due to car being from TX, lots of dust and dirt in the track caused windows to fall out of tracks. Replaced serpentine belt at 72k. Quarter panels seem to dent very easily with the slightest impact. Currently has 87k on it and everything is going well! Paint holds up, electric system, brakes.. ride is very smooth and pretty quiet for being 12 years old. All around nice car for the average driver.




One owner car for 10

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan

I bought this car new, put 60K on it in three years, gave it to wife who put 40K on it in 4 years, and my two high school/college kids put the last 30K on it in three years. Overall a very good car. Drive train is great with the Series II V6 and a strong tranny. A lot of electrical problems over the years. The interior has disintegrated and all the plastic stuff is broken. The windshield wipers have been a problem. The A/C crashed after 6 years and was too expensive to fix so we've done without. I feel like I've gotten my money out of it so I'm trading it in. If I found a clean one used, I'd buy it for the kids.




Loved it, despite problems late

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan

Bought new 2/98. Great car for the first 8 yrs or so. Fun to drive, good fuel economy, good ergonomics, comfortable. It always (from around age 2+) had a minor, but irritating, oil leak that no one ever seemed able to find or fix. Otherwise, experienced only the usual and expected wear-related maintenance issues until about age 9, when several major problems cropped up (cracked intake manifold, mainly), and along with expected maintenance items consistent with that age/mileage just became too much to justify on a car with 121K miles. Finally traded it off 8/2008, but with a lot of sadness. It really was a good car overall, and I was very sorry to see it go.




Great car

Vehicle: 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan

I am original owner and after 154000 miles I still love this car. It is the earlier model with the 3800 seriesII V6- a great engine and no transmission problems. In fact no major maintaince expense- just what one might expect. Starter, intake manifold, plug wires and hoses. I hope to get another 150000 miles. I recently slowed down to the speed limit on highway and got 32/33 mpg against the original advertized 30mpg.
