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.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2001

    The Intrigue receives only minor changes for 2001, including two new exterior colors and a standard air filtration system. The OnStar driver assistance system is now standard on GLS models while Precision Control System equipped models receive exterior "PCS" badging.

A comfortable reliable sedan

by on
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.




Great car! no problems

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

This has been a great car. I purchased it when it was about a year and a half old with 28,000 miles on it. It now has 178,800 miles and has given me zero problems. Great gas mileage and smooth ride. I have only replaced the brakes once and that was about a month ago.




Great care

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

I bought this car with 160,000 miles on it. Not bad. After replacing brakes, tires and struts, and of course keeping up with oil, it runs great. I get 33 mpg highway. It goes when I want it to go, and sure, sometimes the blinkers quit working, but oh well. This car rocks it up the mountain with power, and it rocks it in the snow better than 4x4. My car just hit 202,000, and it's running just as good if not better than when I bought it.




Good vehicle-has its problems

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

The Intrigue has a large power plant giving this car more juice than it needs, making this car a true gas hog. Besides getting worse mpg than some SUVs the Oldsmobile Intrigue handles very well, has traction control and abs for winter and wet driving. The vehicle features one of the largest trunks on Earth so storage not an issue here. However at 82,000 miles with regular service I am running into problems. A common one seems to be the gas gauge. It stopped working around 60,000 and I have not tried to fix it, also the a/c heating element is shot so it only blows on the highest setting. The driver door is also causing problems now. SO I say its good but not so good. A fast, safe, average car




I love this car!

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

For over a few years, I've been wanting to have my own Intrigue and I was finally fortunate enough to get one for my birthday. (Thankfully I got my license). I love this car. It has a lot of power, is very comfortable, and has been very reliable for me. The sound system is amazing, and it's not even the optional bose system. Only expected maintainance for the age and mileage.




Good vehicle

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

I drove this car from Jacksonville, FL to Portland, OR. It was comfortable, the only problem I had with the vehicle was that the coolant resivour had cracked in Texas. I replaced it and we went on our way and made it to Oregon with no problems at all. This vehicle overall, I would probably rate it a high 8 or mid 9.
