Oldsmobile Rocket Intrigue

ReviewThe Oldsmobile 3.5L V6 (Ward's 10 best
engines 1999) paired with the
electronic automatic tranny is
exceptional. Underrated at 215Hp more
like 240-250HP. People have been having
alternator short problems with the
lights dimming on the Intrigue. My
flasher unit is intermittently faulty,
but this is a previous known condition
with the Grand Am etc. When the
windshield wipers are turned off the
blades are vertical so I keep them on
the lowest setting at all times 18sec.
GM made/contracted some electrical
components with shoddy solder joints
(flasher unit, wiper relay).
Best FeaturesExcellent 3.5L engine with alot of forged and powdered metal parts. Stiff suspension. Good looking exterior, tires, wheels. Excellent shifting at all power levels. Sound is good. This car will out accelerate most of the cars out there with the excellent engine and tranny combination.
Worst FeaturesFlasher, Alternator, General electronics build quality. Trunk pools water at times then leaks the water when the trunk is opened? Better adjustable/comfortable/deeper seats for taller people.
