1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue GLS 3.8 from North America
A nice sporty family car
Transmission went at 36,000 miles. but was covered by extended warranty.
Brake rotors tend to warp. I believe due to improper torque at tire changes.
Heater fan has bothersome noise.
Power steering pump and rack and pinion unit went at 81000. Very costly and General Motors says my serial No. is not included their recall for this common problem.
Gas tank door works about 10% of the time.
This car is a joy to ride. The family loves it on long trips.
My daughter loves the Boise sound system so much she wants me to keep the car another 3 years so she can have it for her first car.
The engine is very responsive and not bad on miles per gallon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I bought a 1998 Intrigue in March 15th 2005 with 55,000 miles. Let me say that I like this car. But let me tell you what was wrong.
Replaced rack and pinion (didn't know that there was a recall at GM... maybe someone can brief me on that matter).
Replaced air conditioning condenser... in the front.
Replaced left front bushing (table arm).
Replaced the front shocks.
The right passenger power window does not work (had to operate it with my main control on my side).
Now it is the electric mirror control that failed.
Replaced the rear left coil spring (was broken at 2 places).
The 3.8 L engine: enough power, but poor fuel economy in the city.
The engine has an oil leak somewhere. A mechanic told me that this was common with the 3.8 L block.
Fuel door jamming.
