Decent used car over all! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 07/22/2010. Trim: 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS, Owned 3 years.
Pros: I've had my car for about 3 years now. It has always a smooth ride of course, The ignition has always worked nicely and the car turns over very well for a 98 it doesn't require alot of cranking like alot of cars do when they get to be about this age. It has a nice low-to-the ground feel. Overall, I'm satisfied with the features in my GLS. I haven't really had much need for repairs that really affect the way the car drives. I always thought the car looked very sharp from the back except for those models that lack the wing spoiler. The paint on mine remains just about flawless!
Cons: The car seems to have a kindof "heavy" feel to it when driving it, like it weighs alot. I'm more into the quick and little type of car. I also feel it would be nice for this model to have come with maybe a little more horsepower, has 195 for a V6 of it's year and trim of vehicle I think something like 220 sounds a little better for it. I've had multiple issues with the suspension on mine, had to replace my shocks, struts, and stabilizer bars - multiple issues with the A/C system, and I believe I might have a minor oil leak- possible the rear main seal. The interior as far as the dashboard and door panels seem poorly done. They could of made the front of the car look a little more agressive .
Overall review: Overall it seems like a very well-balanced and reliable car. I feel confident that for a car with already 150500 miles on it, it will last for quite a while more. The engine seems to be pretty durable and good quality. I appreciate it for what it is. I do think that it is nicer overall than the used 2000 mazda millenia that my dad has.
