A decent midsize sedan plagued by initial quality problems and misguided advertising. Worth checking out if you're in the market for a tastefully styled, crisp-handling family sedan that won't break the bank.

OK, So I found one that really was owned by an 80+yr old couple.
Our just bought, 62k miles Intrigue, really shocked me with it's smooth performance, handling, acceleration and ride.
I cleaned some carbon off the BTRFLY valve in the throttle body because the pedal was a little sticky and dropped in a new PCV valve ($3) and this car runs again like it is brand new.
Dealer had all the records and showed only typical maintenance, OTW all original.
I am not partial to any brand, and this was used, but I have been very impressed with a 14+yr old car running this well and looking this good.
My highschool kids feel pretty lucky to have such a nice car to drive.

Reading everyones issues here w/their Intrigue, guess I got lucky.
Bought mine new in 2000 with 10 km on it.
Thought I had a lemon with problems of it overheating & adjustments were made to thermostat in 2nd year. Never had much heat after that unless I was doing 120km on the hwy driving easterly on a sunny day.
Since I was having hot flashes & driving mostly hwy anyway, didnt matter much, but I digress.

I bought this car new. The first month I had it the transmission messed up but a new one was put in. Factory defect. 160,000 miles later the tranny went out. Just had a new one put in and shifts like when I first bought it. That is the only major problem I had but that is normal wear and tear. I bought the car when I was 21 so of course I drove like a fool and beat it up a little. But 9 years later I still have the car and it runs great. It does burn some oil if I go on long trips. I think I can make this car last 200k+ and from other reviews it looks like these cars can last that longer then that and then some. Have some rust forming on the bottom doors, but can live with that.
All Intrigues get restyled six-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels in either silver argent paint or chrome, and the option of adding Oldsmobile's Precision Control System (PCS). The full-function traction-control unit that's standard on the GL and GLS is now available on the GX. Retained accessory power becomes standard, and GL buyers can opt for the revised heated seats on the GLS.
