1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue 4dr Sedan


I bought this when my Subaru wagon's engine died in e. Tenn., (still haven't hit 100k miles on 2 I've owned). Sonny, the owner of the towing/repair center only had 1 car to sell, a silver intrigue, w/147,000 miles on, and I had to go 650 miles back to Chicago with my friend bill & 2 bicycles & gear. The car was leaking oil/coolant, had the warped plastic engine manifold, no ac, worn ignition switch, broken stabilizer bar, rusted muffler, worn tie rods/engine mounts, tension pulley, (from the oil). All were replaced & the transmission was rebuilt too. But the interior & body are in decent shape, and with all the trouble I was getting 31 highway mpg! I feel I have a new car now, and hope to reach 200k miles.

Best Features

Automatic climate controls, Bose sound system, auto on-off lights, v-6 highway mpg & power, comfortable seating & ride, cheaper American car parts, better mpg on highway

Worst Features

Loose interior parts, cup holders, needing to remove bicycle wheels to put inside, broken gas tank cover switch, rubber trim
