GM's Big Mistake
By ab348 on


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


GM's big mistake was killing Oldsmobile and hence cancelling cars like the Intrigue. It was the best of GM's W-body platform cars (Grand Prix, Regal, Impala) with clean styling, the fine 3.5L twincam engine, crisp handling and steering, and all-around road manners. I bought my Intrigue after it had a year's service in a fleet and I couldn't be happier. It drives very nicely, is comfortable, quiet, and fast, and if you want to have a little fun that engine just loves to rev. What a shame that the geniuses that run GM couldn't make a car like this a success.

Best Features

The engine, the handling, the looks, and the comfort. This is a great car.

Worst Features

GM's "sea of gray" interior really needs a bit of brightwork. A 5-speed automatic transmission would have really let the 3.5 engine shine.
