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


Review

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.


Best Features

Sleek design, powerful and refined DOHC engine unique to Oldsmobile, cornering lamps, sporty, but not in-your-face brash like the Grand Prix


Worst Features

Supercharged version?

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


Review

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.


Best Features

3.5 shortstar (aka northstar) motor awsome power likes to be reved even helps with oil consumption this one burns almost none .Also love the handling and ride.Not many on the road. auto climate control ,steering controls, room,folding seats,trunk space, comfortable and smooth shift.


Worst Features

Needs better wndow motor design and they should have gotten rid of the emissions air pump dont need it my runs no different without it.Should have never gotten rid of olds with there new line up.

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


Review

The car is OK, but with mine both passenger windows need the motor replaced, they just seized up one day. Also, the lights flicker and dim on occasion, which is a known issue. Also, resale value is horrible on this car. The engine, so far, has worked great with no major problems. The issues I have with the car are not covered by a warranty, including some that known issues and should be recalled.


Best Features

CD/cassette, traction control, sunroof


Worst Features

The electrical components of this car are really cheaped out, so be prepared for things like turn signals not working on the way to the store and then suddenly starting to work again when you pull up to your door. Again, do an internet search and these are know issue with the car.

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


Review

I am 16 and my parents bought me this as my first car. i like it. it's really reliable i have 78,500 mi on it now and it runs like it just came off the line. the thing I don't like about it is it doesn't get the best gas mileage but what can you do. It also is a old person car. But I am slowly making it nicer by putting a cold air in it, muffler system and a body kit when I'm done with it it wont look like a old person car. Or sound like it.


Best Features

leg room and trunk space

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


Review

This car has been the best one I have ever owned out of 6 in my life of 22 years. I have had some small issues with it like a secondary air pump go out and a fast wearing set of rear brakes but since I have put 4 new tires on the car it rides like a Cadillac but better because it costs a lot less then a Caddy.


Best Features

Wow were to start, the MPG is great almost 28 on the highway going 85 to 90 MPH. Handling is great minus the body roll but with a good set of shoes this car can do anything. The heated/power seats and just the way the car takes the road on makes it a poor mans Cadillac. I love my car


Worst Features

None so far I have put 14000 miles on it in 9 months and I have no complaints for a car with 122K on its plate
