2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue Sedan GL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Have owned this car for 2 years - purchased with around 50K miles - Runs Great Super 6 Cylinder engine is the strength of this car. Have had issues with Brakes, Front end suspension and Wheel bearings. Interior Build quality lacking Power Window/Lock switch Assembly loose on both front doors. Fit and finish of interior fair to poor. This car runs great - too bad Olds was shelved by GM - These cars at the time had better exterior styling than Buick or Saturn.


Best Features

Strong effecient 6 cylinder engine

2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue Sedan GL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Nearly 72 months now as original owner. The Intrigue GL still delivers on all expectations. The intermediate steering shaft needs lubrication for the first time but it's not a critical maintenance issue. Most GM W-Body cars need that $100 dealer service only once in 100,000 miles. Other than that no unscheduled services required. 90 percent of my driving is in the city and the car averages 19 miles-per-gallon. All-in-all it's been a pretty darn nice car!


Best Features

Styling. Handling. Seating comfort. Heated power seats. Great audio system.

Review

It is so depressing to know that you cannot replace this car with a newer model. I have been researching to purchase a new car, with lots of disappointments.

2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue Sedan GL 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought it salvaged, and surprisingly the only problem so far is a malfunctioning window. Car has excellent MPG--I once clocked it at 34 hwy--and coasts around town like a dream. Heater can be a little weird; otherwise loaded with good functional features. Accelerates on a dime, quiet, fast.


Best Features

Good gas mileage, heated seats, Bose sound system, performance


Worst Features

Unfortunately this car is no longer produced, but I would have appreciated a better cup holder and better defoggers.

2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue Sedan GLS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Fun to drive, comfortable sedan. I bought the car new, and loaded, for a steal. There were a few minor quality issues - water pump had to be replaced (at normal service visit), and a nut on one of the wipers had to be retightened (10 minutes at another Olds dealer). Both of these were fixed under warranty, and neither left me stuck. I got a lot of car for the money, and put a lot of worry free miles on it. I rated a lot of 8's, and that's because there are such things as Lexus, Infiniti, etc., but compared to the price range the Intrigue competed in (Accords, Camrys, etc), the Intrigue was a great car and a great value


Best Features

Fun to drive - plenty of acceleration (sometimes I drove it hard), handled very well. Affordable features - leather seating, moon roof, etc


Worst Features

Interior could have been executed better - only one of the front cup holders was usable (other was in front of shifter). Some gaps appeared between trim and one of the vents, stuff of that nature
