"Although this was the last Oldsmobile made it has been a fantastic car. Just curious on price for insurance purposes. I have been faithful with maintenance, tires, repairs when necessary. Thanks to an excellent auto shop which I have used for just about forever, am not afraid to drive long distances on a regular basis. Am an old person now, and have had many, many cars. I have driven this one the longest (next best was a Pontiac) Can't recommend it because they don't make them like this anymore....LOL"

"My Intrigue was an 'executive program' car with 12k miles on it when I bought it 16 years ago. It's V-6 engine was built in Limo, Ohio - known to last 350,000 miles. Optional amenities on other cars came standard on this Intrigue. It has been a great car & I loved driving it."

Never required a tow in. Minimal garage visits.

Pros: "I got it for a great price"

Cons: "Everything breaks at once"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"I bought this when I was 17. It was my first car so it didnt matter if I had a new car. But I loved it the first year I had it. Nothing broke and everything was running well. Then the second year came and literally everything broke. The radiator was terrible, I had leaks everywhere, and the interior was all falling apart. My windows all broke and so did the air conditioner. My tires always went flat and everywhere I went they never knew why. Whenever I turned my car shook and I got my tires realigned and didnt really fix it. It always made weird rattling noises but I kept taking it to the shop and nothing was ever wrong. Then my radiator and the input cracked and I have decided to stop putting more money on it to fix it. It has givin me so much issues in the last four years and I am ready for a new car. Dont ever get an oldsmobile!"

Pros: "Comfortable, quiet, cheap to run, roomy"

Cons: "3.8L V6 is thirsty"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought this car used with about 160K miles on it and it's been good to me. It has the 3800 Series III Buick engine and has been very reliable and the maintenance costs are low. GM has put this block in cars since the 80s, so parts are cheap and plentiful. The car needs a throttle sensor to correct the transmission's shifting issues, but that's the worst I've had. It's comfortable on long-distance trips and handles as good as a comparable import. The most complaints I've heard from Intrigue owners tend to be from the optional 3.5L Cadillac engine. Avoid that engine and you'll have a car that can last up to 250K miles before it needs major work."

"This car is super cute and the speakers sound great. However, this car is not the most reliable. I have owned this car for two years and my mom had it for a year before me. In the past three years I have had to replace the motor, the starter, and have had to make many other mechanical repairs. My granny also has this same car and she was had a lot of trouble with her's too. I would not recommend this car unless you like spending your time on the side of the road."
