Review of the 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue

  • Oldsmobile's Intrigue was one of GM's most promising products when it was released in 1998, but quality stumbling blocks and a muddled brand identity helped to quash sales hopes. This is a decent midsize sedan, and as this once proud marque's days fade into twilight, good deals on Intrigues ought to be readily available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Cleanly styled inside and out, available stability control, good-sized trunk.

    Poorly constructed and creaky, rear seat room tight for adults, unproven reliability record.

2001 olds intrigue gls.. weathered

Vehicle: 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

With all the features I got for a decent price from the previous owner, I would say that value-wise, this car is great, but it's definitely starting to lose its steam. It's only got 144K miles on it, but it acts like it's got many more, even though it's got the original hardy engine that performs well. Maybe it's just because it's over ten years old and I never saw it in its heydey, or maybe I picked the wrong one, but I just can't seem to fall in love with this car. It is decent for the most part.

A comfortable reliable sedan

Vehicle: 2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue GX 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this car with 125k miles, now at 140k. Overall it is comfortable, handles well for a car its size and has good power. The interior materials have held up well (especially the cloth and carpet) and the paint still looks great. When I first got the car,I upgraded the wheels and put on new tires. So far, they have hardly worn at all. I had a stalling problem in the first couple of months that turned out to be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Right now the "abs" and "trac off" lights are on b/c I broke a brittle wire while trying to secure a speed sensor. I will be putting in new pads and rotors soon, as the brakes have begun to pulsate, but this is just regular maintenance.
