2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Great car. V6 is a gem of performance
and economy. I gave up only 2 MPG (to
23-24 MPG) around town going from a 4-
cyl to this car, and get similar
freeway mileage (30-32MPG at 70-75mph).
Interior design is great; nice touches
with the steering wheel audio controls
and dual zone automatic AC. Power
heated leather is very comfortable
(drove 5400 miles over two weeks this
past summer). Downside is typical GM
trim panel loosening with age (dash
squeak) and large seams between panels.
The handling and ride compromise is
unbeatable - cruises in comfort over
rough pavement at speed but encourages
getting off the freeway in search of a
twisty two lane.
Responsive 3.5L V6, gorgeous sheet
metal and ride/handling are the
features that sold me on the car. The
interior design (auto AC, stereo
controls, ergonomics) just reinforces
the pleasure in driving this car.
Tighter gap tolerances and more secure
attachment of the dash trim panels (NO
squeaks or groans!).
