1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 3.8L from North America
Great, otherwise reliable car with oil leak to hot manifold that causes a stink
About 85000 miles, the oil leaks drip onto the exhaust manifold and make a stink that comes into the ventilation system when the car is stopped. Keeping the engine exactly one quart low minimizes the problem.
The tape player swallowed a tape, but the CD still works.
Those straps that unlock the fold down seats from the trunk, came off their mounting.
This car has been very reliable, peppy. quiet and comfortable car getting 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on highway trips.
I love its simple elegant styling.
The cloth seats are not tattered at this mileage.
The not-highly padded seats with great lumbar support don't bring out a hip joint pain on long rides that I get when driving my highly padded 2000 Buick Regal.
The oil leak to the hot manifold stink is starting to be a fatal flaw. At greater than $1600 to fix I think I will get rid of this car before my Buick.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
