Review of the 2002 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. Now that the bugs are ironed out, the Intrigue is scheduled to die at the end of this year.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Cleanly styled inside and out, available stability control, sophisticated 3.5-liter V6 engine.

  • Cons

    Cheap interior materials, rear seat room tight for adults, sketchy reliability record.

  • What's New for 2002

    LATCH child-seat anchors and two new colors are added, along with a standard CD player. GLS models receive additional standard equipment that includes a two-tone leather interior, sunroof and a HomeLink system. This is the last year for the Oldsmobile Intrigue.

The best car i have

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

My wife and I leased a 1999 GL and when GM announced the phase out of the Intrigue in 2002 with the end of Olds, we had to buy one while we still could. We got the GLS fully loaded for about $25,000. After 8 years and closing in on 200,000 miles, (not a typo), it is the best car I have ever owned, hands down. Impressive pick up for a car of that size. The 3.5L V6 with regular maintenance is as durable as they come, and still purrs like a kitten. The optional "Precision Control System" gives the car great handling, especially around curves at higher speeds, and the ride comfort is very good for a sportier car. Still getting 24/28 mpg. A great car. Too bad GM couldn't sell more of them.




Great car! what was gm

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

My first Olds Intrigue was totaled when another driver ran a stop light at 70 MPH! Later when I went back to the salvage yard to get my personal belongings, the Police were there and told me that the car durability saved my life, so I bought my second Olds Intrigue in 10/2007 with 27k on it. I do outside sales on the road, I now have 90k on it. Other than basic repairs (tires, battery) it has been problem free. Comfortable for long trips, rides smooth, and the A/C blows colder and cools faster than my wifes 2006 Chevy Impala! Why did GM kill Olds? My sister just bought herself one with low miles. She used to laugh at my Olds, now she is glad she got hers. People can't believe it's 7 yrs old!




Solid car

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Fun to drive, comfortable sedan. I bought the car new, and loaded, for a steal. There were a few minor quality issues - water pump had to be replaced (at normal service visit), and a nut on one of the wipers had to be retightened (10 minutes at another Olds dealer). Both of these were fixed under warranty, and neither left me stuck. I got a lot of car for the money, and put a lot of worry free miles on it. I rated a lot of 8's, and that's because there are such things as Lexus, Infiniti, etc., but compared to the price range the Intrigue competed in (Accords, Camrys, etc), the Intrigue was a great car and a great value




Good value

The Oldsmobile Intrigue is a very good performer all around. It provides a good combination of performance and fuel economy. It has a few minor defects, mostly related to the Bose stereo system. Although it played well, the volume knob broke off and after 4 1/2 years of service the CD player broke.

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Overall I've had a good experience, but lately i've started to have problems with it starting right away, so far i've paid over $200 to find out whats wrong and no one can tell me anything. They suggested that it had to do with fuel pressure and they said they have had problems like that with other Intrigue's.




Good - standard to improve

Vehicle: 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

A well designed car for GM. Everything works as anticipated with but one complaint about a window air noise at specific speeds. Dealer tried a fix and it is better but ...... Too bad Olds is folding and this type of vehicle is discontinued instead of being improved.
