Why Oldsmobile died
By Oh boy on
2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan
At first with all GM sedans the car looked really nice. Then it starts moving and your feelings begin to change. This car rattles a lot, and seems like it was assembled like a plastic model kit. The door panels move a little when you touch them and the passenger widow control actually popped out one day when my wife closed the door. The fake wood paneling is cheap and is cracking on the dashboard. The rear power window stopped working and that was only after a handful of times using it. It burns way too much oil. I have the high end version of this model and would hate to imagine how bad the base model would be. I have a 1999 Honda Civic and have not had any of these problems.
It has good acceleration and roomy. But anything over 79 mph it begins to rattle a lot and feels like your dropping car parts on the highway.
