2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue GX 4dr Sedan


This is our first new car. At around
40k miles it developed an oil
consumption problem. Now it consumes
1qt in about 1200 miles. There is no
oil on the garage floor and it doesn't
somke. I personally change the oil and
perform most maintenance. I have never
seen a car burn out so many dash bulbs
like this does. I hate the rock hard
arm rests, my FORD F350 had FAR
superior arm rests. I'm 6'3" (not
terribly tall) and my head rubs the
ceiling of the car, I would hate to be
any taller! The throttle valve has a
problem of getting coated with gunk
and making the pedal stick closed and
the car leaps forward when you finally
break the throttle loose.

Best Features

The power is excellent, especially for a family car. Passing slow cars on a two lane road is effortless. The car has nice features, but in my opinion it really lacks quality.

Worst Features

This is a bad car in my opinion. My brother owns a '98 with the 3.8L engine and loves it. The 3.8L has been around since at least 1980, probably earlier. The transmission shudders when shifting into OD. The car is worth $0 for trade in. My plan is to pay it off and keep it for a beater
