Olds Intrigue: The FUNmobile from Oldsmobile

by
Mar 12, 2007 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: GREAT engine, very good gas mileage, a steal to buy!
Cons: None that I have found
The Bottom Line: Great buy for the money; a dependable car that is inexpensive to operate.

My wife and I live in the country, and drive about 15,000-18,000 miles to and from work each. Rather than spend $20,000 on a car that would be worth about $5,000 after a few years, I decided to buy a good GM car with the latest safety features. I ... read more

99 Black GX

by
Jan 20, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: power, fuel economy, handling, stability, looks, comfort, reliability
Cons: cheap interior, no fold-down rear seat
The Bottom Line: I'd recommend all Intrigues except for early 99's with the 3.5. There were some engine problems that were sorted out later.

I've always been an Oldsmobile guy, but judging by the direction they were headed in the early 90's, I got the feeling that I would never be buying another one until I was 70 years old. Maybe then I would be in the proper age bracket that GM was ... read more

I Stayed Intrigued By My Intrigue!

by
Jun 20, 2002 - Updated Sep 12, 2002 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Classy look, comfortable interior, I could go on and on!
Cons: Acceleration lacks!
The Bottom Line: The best, most reliable, most stylish car I've ever owned. Loaded with standard options and priced reasonably.

As I saw my 1999 Intrigue being driven away last month by the car dealer where I traded it in, I was surprisingly sad. This is a car that is packed with standard options that make your driving experience very nice. The first thing that ... read more

Intriguing.

by
Aug 5, 2001 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Fast, powerful, good torque, great option packages.
Cons: Production ending!
The Bottom Line: The best car in it's class. Gorgeous, and fun to drive. An excellent car to drive or ride in!

This Oldsmobile is worthy. Reliable, strong, powerful, fast, everything the Intrigue needs to be an Oldsmobile, not just another car on the road. I bought the Intrigue new in 1999 and it's still just as sharp. Although it is front-wheel ... read more

Beautiful "European" Styled Car

by
Jun 14, 2001 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Beautiful European Styling. POWERFULL RESPONSIVE Engine. Nice Interior
Cons: Paint could be a little better. Mirror outside color faded after a year.
The Bottom Line: I real beautiful, powerful car that GM decided to make a stupid judgment and kill it.

This car was purchased to replace a 89 Ford Taurus that died even though it only had 60K on it...never buy Ford again. It was a close tie between the Intrigue and the Buick Regal. Both shared the same characteristics except for Engine and Styling. ... read more

'99 Intrigue GL w/ 3.5L V6

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Excellent Power & Handling; Spacious Room; Quiet Ride
Cons: No "Door Open" Warning Light; Audio System is Non-standard DIN Size

Had to give up my 2-door manual transmission Celica GTS since the stick shift was too bestial for my wife and the back seats didn't transport friends well. Determined that if I got an automatic 4-door sedan, it was going to be sporty, and I mean a car ... read more

A Great Car

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Quick, Handles Well
Cons: Dull Appearance

This car was purchased for me as a company car so I had little to do with the decision making. However, I am tremendously pleased with it. Although it's not very exiting in appearance, it is roomy and comfortable. It handles more like a foreign car than ... read more

Pure Driving Pleasure

Pros: very smooth ride, good gas mileage, responsive, comfortable, very safe.
Cons: needs brake job after 30,000 miles

I bought the car because of the amenities that were offered at a reasonable price - it was hard to beat! That legendary 3800 V6 engine gives performance and decent gas mileage (which is certainly important these days - 24/32 mpg, depending on how heavy ... read more

Pros: great car overall

When I first thought about buying cars I would have never Thought about buying an American car, let alone an Oldsmobile. I thought that Oldsmobile was for old people and it was bad. My mind was changed after driving the Intrigue. This a great car...a ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: Engine
Cons: Ergonomics, cheap feel to interior, overall tin-can feel

Sometimes I pity Detroit. They really have made improvements in the 20 years that the Japanese gave them their first quality lesson. The cars that are being produced today by the Big Three are far superior to their past efforts. Unfortunately by the time ... read more

Hard to beat value

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Standard Equipment, drive-train, styling
Cons: interior appointments, fuel consumption

I recently purchased a used '99 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL. I had been seeking a mid-sized car and had narrowed my choices to primarily the Intrigue, Intrepid or Concorde. I have often driven each as rentals so I was pretty much aware of their characters. ... read more

Pros: Safty and response
Cons: Price 23-28K nicely loaded

I started looking at the Intrigue because of Consumers Reports "Best Buy" rating. I am a professional who loves to play. I'm a little over 6 foot and athletically built so I need a car that I can be comfortable in. I like all the safety ... read more

Pros: convenience of option packages, wonderful driving experience, reliable
Cons: steering isn't as tight as i'd like, dash looks too big

I never thought I'd say this but I actually wanted to buy an Oldsmobile and until this car came out I never thought that I would want to. I can remember seeing this car on the road since 1998 and wondering "who makes that car?" When I finally ... read more

Pros: quality, price, power
Cons: body style is not very sporty

My husband's car was totaled by a drunk driver so he decided to buy one at the state auction. He was unhappy with it so he started looking at several cars. He happened to run across the Intrigue and found the most wonderful car for the money. We got a ... read more

Pros: Very smooth ride. Roomy. No noise.
Cons: Can't think of any.

We have had our 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue for about 3 months now. We are leasing it for 3 years. When we set out to look for a new vehicle we were very unsure on what we wanted. What we did know is that I was about four months pregnant with our first ... read more

The Aurora's Little Brother

Pros: Front half of car-inside and out, drive-train, fit & finish.
Cons: Rear half of car-inside and out, poor airflow to rear seat, ashtray/lighter design.

Hoping for an Aurora, but unwilling to pay the price, I leased an Intrigue by Oldsmobile, back in March of 1999. I picked out a dark green, fully loaded GLS, which now shows 25,000 miles. Here are some impressions of the ride so far. Driving ... read more

Pros: wonderful handling and powerful engine, nice full sized sedan
Cons: depreciation

I recently test drove an Oldsmobile Intrigue. I looked at the price, considered it within my price range and told the salesman I'd think about it. On my way home I stopped at another car lot. On it was sitting a 1999 Intrigue with 28,xxx miles. IT ... read more
