2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue GX 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car with 160,000 miles on it. Not bad. After replacing brakes, tires and struts, and of course keeping up with oil, it runs great. I get 33 mpg highway. It goes when I want it to go, and sure, sometimes the blinkers quit working, but oh well. This car rocks it up the mountain with power, and it rocks it in the snow better than 4x4. My car just hit 202,000, and it's running just as good if not better than when I bought it.


Best Features

trac control, power seat, 2 lighters.


Worst Features

power seat on both sides. working blinkers at all times :)

2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I owned this car for 2 years and was very pleased with it. I bought it with 60k and it was mostly trouble free except for a few minor problems: The check engine light came on shortly after I bought it, a check indicated a problem with the "secondary air injection system." The front suspension developed a loose feeling and vibrated a lot during braking. The ignition developed an issue where it wouldn't read the security code for the key and disable the engine. This was the most irritating problem the car had and often left me stranded. Overall, after 98k was put on it, I would definitely buy another.


Best Features

Sleek design, powerful and refined DOHC engine unique to Oldsmobile, cornering lamps, sporty, but not in-your-face brash like the Grand Prix


Worst Features

Supercharged version?

Review

my car has 153xxx miles and still has the new car smell still !!.i I love this car had one owner and runs,drives,looks, and rides new still.And at $1,800 I got a steal never been smoked in and all highway miles.Only problems are back windows wont go down all the way(window regular $45 apiece)and get stuck and check engine light on code 0410 needs new secondare air pump.This car runs and handles like a box style z28 camaro, rides like a european car, quality of a honda or toyota, looks of a sports car, and interior hints of a caddy and lexus.This car was made to fight imports and olds was low on sales,and so they made this car to help turn around olds.So it was built to last.


Best Features

3.5 shortstar (aka northstar) motor awsome power likes to be reved even helps with oil consumption this one burns almost none .Also love the handling and ride.Not many on the road. auto climate control ,steering controls, room,folding seats,trunk space, comfortable and smooth shift.


Worst Features

Needs better wndow motor design and they should have gotten rid of the emissions air pump dont need it my runs no different without it.Should have never gotten rid of olds with there new line up.

2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this car used in 2004, and have put on 100K miles on it. It now has 155K and runs great. I give it a tune-up every year and regular oil changes, other than that no other maintenance. I am very happy with the vehicle, but disappointed that there are no newer Oldsmobiles to replace my current one. Still looks new.


Best Features

Love the heated seats, the traction control, and comfort.

Review

The car is OK, but with mine both passenger windows need the motor replaced, they just seized up one day. Also, the lights flicker and dim on occasion, which is a known issue. Also, resale value is horrible on this car. The engine, so far, has worked great with no major problems. The issues I have with the car are not covered by a warranty, including some that known issues and should be recalled.


Best Features

CD/cassette, traction control, sunroof


Worst Features

The electrical components of this car are really cheaped out, so be prepared for things like turn signals not working on the way to the store and then suddenly starting to work again when you pull up to your door. Again, do an internet search and these are know issue with the car.
