2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan


Review

This vehicle is a signature of GM's failure to create reliable and economical vehicles. Here's a list of repairs done through out my 10 yr ownership: all PWR windows, climate control, blower motor resistor, instrument panel, steering system, A/C compressor, cracked ac vents, wheel bearings, coil packs, crank sensor, cam sensor, oil seals, engine, transmission(2x), lower control arms, valve cover seals, EGR sensor, coolant reservoir, starter (x2)!


Best Features

NONE


Worst Features

EVERYTHING. although Oldsmobile no longer exists, GM needs a miracle to compete with Japanese rivals!

Review

We bought our intrigue w/ over 100,000 mi. On it and it runs great! Plenty of power and pick up w/ engine is awesome. I do have 2 big complaints though. The window control assembly on driver side pops out at will and I'm sure it wont be long before the buttons on it stop working. And the suspension on it deteriorated very quickly and now it is a horrible ride on any slightly bumpy surface. It sounds rough like it may knock a tire off or worse. But overall, it has been a very good second car for us and I love the way it still looks for its age. For me, mechanically it has been a good purchase and I plan to drive for a long time to come.


Best Features

power of engine, lots of room, nice looking vehicle


Worst Features

a/c cooling system is an automatic system and it has mind of its own. does not cool well at all. and the a/c system should not have to re-charged.

Review

My 2000 Intrigue has 250K miles on it and the only issue I've had is a hairline crack in the coolant tank and an axle that had to be replaced. As a single working mother of 4 kids this car has been a lifesaver. There is nothing worse than having an unreliable car. I am currently looking for the same year model car as a back up for this car. I'm not sure how much longer it can go but it just keeps on going.


Best Features

The motor and transmission. Very reliable.


Worst Features

Everyone I've known w/this car of a similar Olds has had window issues. I only have 1 working window. At 55K they all worked. I drive on gravel roads and felt like the bumpiness had something to do with the windows. They broke back to back after moving to a rural area where I took a gravel road.

Review

Bought new, special ordered, the day before Thanksgiving 1999 (Mine also came with a dealer installed aftermarket SLP stageI TypeR performance/handling package as well). Bought it for two main reasons: the engine (rated in the 10 best at the time) and the styling; Wanted a European type handling/ride and refinement and this had it. 63000 miles now and 10 years old. All power windows went out over time and had to be replaced (a common GM issue); Other than recent tie rod end replacements, nothing else. Have had this on a race track (Road America road course in Wis.) for over an hour chasing (and passing) BMW's back in 2001; Great handling; OK used, but epxect some issues.


Best Features

Acceleration, esp. top end; Engine sound at high revs; Styling; Handling


Worst Features

Increased reliability for the time.
