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


Review

This is a really great car. Reliable, fun to drive, powerful, super economical, very roomy, supportive seats, great cornering, and superior braking, make it a perfect sporty alternative to bring sedans. Compared to Accord, Camry, Passat, and Maxima, when I was shopping. Intrigue felt like it was built better, with more quality feel to it. Plus the motor is Northstar inspired, and borrowed from the Aurora. The acceleration and passing ability are far better than the numbers most magazine put out. I've clocked mine from 0-60 with a professional stopwatch. The timing was averaged at 6.49 over 5 trials. Fuel economy is averaging in the 30's. Maintenance has been basic oil changes and filters only


Best Features

Quality of the car, Style...it really looks great i never get tired of the style. Performance...i love putting maximas in there place. Camry, Accord, and Passat don't even come close. The traction in the rain and snow is also exceptionally good. Very well balanced power and weight.


Worst Features

Maybe a wagon model with a 3rd seat. I would've liked an all wheel drive for the really bad ice. But my Intrigue is great in the regular snow and slick rain so i really have no complaints

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


Review

This vehicle has a very comfortable interior, an attractive exterior, and a powerful DOHC V6 engine. I picked it because of the refinement and build quality that was apparent in my vehicle while it was on the dealer lot. Have had no problems so far!


Best Features

3.5 DOHC V6, interior design/ergonomics, panel fit and finish, and great sound system


Worst Features

None.

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


Review

This car was bought used, but was in such good condition that I could not pass the sale up. The Intrigue is stylish, comfortable, and an able performer (with the 3.5 DOHC V6). I really like the takeoff of the vehicle and the fuel economy; both are excellent. The interior design is not too bold, but it is stylish. The exterior was a departure from traditional "Oldsmobile boringness" and brought a sense of fresh air. The interior has great fit and finish and build quality is excellent; not a squeak or rattle even at nearly 50,000 miles! I would recommend this car to anyone who is looking for a comfortable high quality used vehicle.


Best Features

Nice radio (even w/out the Bose), stylish interior and exterior, powerful and refined engine, smooth transmission, and quiet interior.


Worst Features

None

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


Review

I bought my '01 Intrigue in 2001, as a program car, (28K mi), because it seemed a very good deal (half price). I didn't need another car, but , a few years later, I'm still happy with this purchase. It was one of the sportiest American midsize sedans of the day. The major critique it received was about finish quality; however, all I could find wrong with my car was a side dash plastic panel fitted poorly. GM management should have kept the oldest car brand existing, not dump it. I believe they should have upgraded the Oldsmobile lineup, instead of coming up with the dubious GTO, SSR, etc...


Best Features

Accelerates well, albeit having to downshift from D to 3 above about 40 mph, for heavier acceleration. That's how it gets very good gas mileage: >30mpg from CO to Grand Canyon. 4valve, coil on plug, 100K mi service engine; traction control, ABS, 4 disc brakes. Very large trunk. Dash mounted ignition.


Worst Features

I hoped for less body roll during cornering. Interior plastic panels could have been fitted a little better here and there. Oh, I forgot to mention the in-glass antenna and the cornering lights may come in handy, occasionally.

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


Review

This is my first and probably my last
Olds. It was a good choice I think.
No real glaring faults with the car
but the exterior design could of been
a little better. Thinking about
putting some after market fog lamps on
the car. If I trade it in, I probably
go with either Toyota or Honda. Sorry
GM, Ford lovers out there.


Best Features

CD player. Bose speakers. Traction control. 3.5 liter V6 engine. Good gas mileage for a mid-size car. (19/30)


Worst Features

Can't. They don't make this car anymore.
