You are in the Oldsmobile Intrigue
What is this discussion about?
Oldsmobile Intrigue, Sedan
Apr 30, 2001 (8:59 pm)
Intrigues are about average in reliability... But cars today are soooo much better than they were 15 or 20 years ago. You can buy an average modern car and it will serve you well.
Because Oldsmobile is going away, you should buy the car if you want to keep it until it's worn out, or give to your kids. The Intrigue is a good car, but it's not a store of value.
Does anybody know how many Intrigues have been built since 1998? And how many of these were 3.5L?

I really don't believe dealers are going to order Intrigues for inventory..The risk is too great for them as the right color/equipment combo is impossible to choose..
Estabish a price and pick our options..The need for sweet deals in the future is diminishing because there is no inventory to move, the inventory is gone for most part from the initial sweeteners of rebates and warranty.
I find the Olds group of dealers very uninformed and not very sales oriented. They rely on walk-in business, and then you have to beg them to sell you a car..
They are not on my list of greats; and the 02 I am sure will conclude the Intrigue run; so step forth and commit; else pick another brand..
etharmon-----The air suspension on the Mark can offer a real challenge to owners..The Regal forum is not a happy group overall due to rattles and some handling problems..The quietness of the Buick as you will learn is due to the floppy suspension.. You may be somewhat confused at this moment due to the many options of little cars, big cars, new cars, or old cars..Got to establish goals..

you got that right! car shopping sucks. I started off wanting a Blazer and i'm now considering an Intrigue (man, it's a good deal though hahaha).

Osborne has tripled their olds' orders since the announcement.
She did find a sandstone '01 GL PCS on the locater. I think she found 5 PCS cars altogether.
I do not know if she is single, but with her personality i would think that she is married. The good ones are always taken.
Was on the regal board last night and was surprised to read about the rattles they have. Especially in a car that is so softly suspended.

nmchop----The pricing on the 01 Blazers should be outstanding and a great value; for the new Trailblazer is not a cheap SUV.
You will never get a Blazer for any less..I don't need one but my daughter was thinking about getting a new one so I was following some of the advertising..
Again, never will it any better to buy a Blazer or an Intrigue..

nmchop : Can't go very wrong with a 2000. I have a 2000 GL and it's been a great car. Silver also looks better than most colors in the winter. The 3.5L is a real smoothie also! "swagled" is right, re-sale is not great. That being said, you are getting a good deal there.
etharmon : When is your lease up?
cd96ns : Local dealer just got about 5 new Intrigues on the lot (7 total). Maybe they are gearing up for a new promotion.
#2698 of 12345 intrigue info
May 01, 2001 (2:21 am)
My conversation with the salesperson at osborne brought up some more interesting info. She told me that she had sold a car to a GM employee who was ready to pick it up.
The car was built and was sitting at the factory for two weeks before they picked up to take it to the holding yard. She said she had never heard of that before. It has been her experience that if they told the customer it would be ready in 6-8 weeks tht it would usually be ready in about 6 weeks. Now she says its 10-12 weeks and that ford is kicking GM's butt when it comes to delivery times.
