2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I just took delivery of a 2002
Intrigue, my second GL and a
replacement for my 1999, which I drove
for about 33,000 miles. Simply put, I
just could not turn down the
incentives. GM is making a major
mistake in not continuing this car,
even in another guise (e.g., Buick or
Pontiac). Improvements include more
precise steering and an improved sound
system, as well as a blessedly silent
horn when using the remote locking
system. Handling seems a tad softer,
however,and the car seems to reach its
side loading limits rather abruptly in
sweeping turns. Gas mileage is about
the same (mediocre), but the engine
still provides plenty of grunt when
asked, perhaps my favorite feature.
Engine is great, so are steering,
interior space utilization and comfort.
A moot point, since they stop making
these sweethearts in June.
