2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GX 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
GM's big mistake was killing Oldsmobile and hence cancelling cars like the Intrigue. It was the best of GM's W-body platform cars (Grand Prix, Regal, Impala) with clean styling, the fine 3.5L twincam engine, crisp handling and steering, and all-around road manners. I bought my Intrigue after it had a year's service in a fleet and I couldn't be happier. It drives very nicely, is comfortable, quiet, and fast, and if you want to have a little fun that engine just loves to rev. What a shame that the geniuses that run GM couldn't make a car like this a success.
The engine, the handling, the looks, and the comfort. This is a great car.
GM's "sea of gray" interior really needs a bit of brightwork. A 5-speed automatic transmission would have really let the 3.5 engine shine.
