I bought this car with 125k miles, now at 140k. Overall it is comfortable, handles well for a car its size and has good power. The interior materials have held up well (especially the cloth and carpet) and the paint still looks great. When I first got the car,I upgraded the wheels and put on new tires. So far, they have hardly worn at all. I had a stalling problem in the first couple of months that turned out to be the Crankshaft Position Sensor. Right now the "abs" and "trac off" lights are on b/c I broke a brittle wire while trying to secure a speed sensor. I will be putting in new pads and rotors soon, as the brakes have begun to pulsate, but this is just regular maintenance.
I love my dont get me wrong.I've had it just over a year now and it's just now giving me problems.After looking up everything about the car,everyone seems to have the same issue.The car just wont start.I have no clue why and no one else seems to know either.If that issue was resolved it would be great.So if anyone knows please post it.Other than that I love the speed of the car,great get-up.
With all the features I got for a decent price from the previous owner, I would say that value-wise, this car is great, but it's definitely starting to lose its steam. It's only got 144K miles on it, but it acts like it's got many more, even though it's got the original hardy engine that performs well. Maybe it's just because it's over ten years old and I never saw it in its heydey, or maybe I picked the wrong one, but I just can't seem to fall in love with this car. It is decent for the most part.
I bought my Olds brand new in 2001 and have put over 107,000 miles on it. I absolutely love my car. It handles great in all weather, with relatively low maintenance. I've put new tires and brakes on it but that's normal wear-and-tear for 107,000 miles. The duo heated-leather seats, moonroof and stability control are my "must-have's." I was doing a bit of looking around for a potential new car after I hit the 100,000 miles mark and cannot find anything close to my Olds for under $35,000. Last weekend I put 8 bags of mulch in the trunk with the door CLOSED. GM had a winner with the Intrigue but now is no more.
After owning the car for several months, I have noticed a hint of cheapness in the interior. First the clear plastic cover over the speedometer etc started to rattle on rough surfaces. Glove box has also started to rattle now. Also had to replace alternator after 2000 because of lights dimming. Nice car, but not especially impressed with initial build quality. However, the engine is top notch.
