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.

Worst car ever

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

This is the worst car ever made! This is my first vehicle, and everything that could go wrong with a car has gone wrong with this one. I bought it and then 3 months later had to replace the engine. 3 months after that had to replace the struts, which by the way cost almost 300 each! Now all the lights are on, on the dash. The signals do not work anymore. And the car started randomly shutting off while you are driving! Most of the time you try to start it and it acts like it has a dead battery. And I have never seen rust problems like this before! This is the worst car ever, will never never never buy a intrigue ever again! Stay away from these cars!




Great car for the money!

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

210,000 miles and still going. This car just wont die. I've put over 150,000 miles on this car myself and have never replaced more than the tires and oil filter. Granted, the turn signals and gas gage are no longer working. Almost every interior dash light is on, and the steering seems to be going out....the engine just keeps on running! I wrote this car off about 50,000 miles ago but nope, she's still kicking. Also, still gets aroun 28-30 miles to the gallon. Have to keep track by hand no so I dont run out out gas but hey, she doesnt owe me anything at this point.




Not your granpa's olds!!!

I'm only the second-owner of this great medium-size family sedan. It was clean- quick and quiet then, and still is. We consistently got 33mpg on the road to KY. It's easy to park and drive...has fewer blind spots than the Lexus we're buying. Great sound system...and lot's of trunk space.




Overall a good car

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

I owned this car for 2 years and was very pleased with it. I bought it with 60k and it was mostly trouble free except for a few minor problems: The check engine light came on shortly after I bought it, a check indicated a problem with the "secondary air injection system." The front suspension developed a loose feeling and vibrated a lot during braking. The ignition developed an issue where it wouldn't read the security code for the key and disable the engine. This was the most irritating problem the car had and often left me stranded. Overall, after 98k was put on it, I would definitely buy another.




New car smell still

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

my car has 153xxx miles and still has the new car smell still !!.i I love this car had one owner and runs,drives,looks, and rides new still.And at $1,800 I got a steal never been smoked in and all highway miles.Only problems are back windows wont go down all the way(window regular $45 apiece)and get stuck and check engine light on code 0410 needs new secondare air pump.This car runs and handles like a box style z28 camaro, rides like a european car, quality of a honda or toyota, looks of a sports car, and interior hints of a caddy and lexus.This car was made to fight imports and olds was low on sales,and so they made this car to help turn around olds.So it was built to last.
