2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue GL from North America
The more mileage the more issues!
Crank sensor had to be replaced.
Tie rods had to be replaced.
Passenger door does get stuck at times.
I have been satisfied with the driving performance on my 2000 olds intrigue. I unfortunately did have to have the crank sensor replaced since my car was turning off 10 minutes or so after driving it in the winter. It also had to have the tie rods replaced fortunately covered thru the extended warranty. I now have an issue with some noise under my passengers seat when I'm driving I have to take it into the dealer to check what the problem is. I am having another issue now my car is turning off sporaticly when I'm driving for no apparent reason. My serive engine light comes on and my wheels lock it takes a few minutes and it will turn back on. I did take it to the dealer, but they claimed nothing is wrongs. Its been 5 days since I took it in and today it turned off again this time it turned off for about 20 minutes before being able to turn on. I am extremely concerned that my car will just die out on the expressway. Now I have to schedule another appointment with the dealer to find out what the problem is. I do recommend the extended warranty for anyone with this vehicle so far all I've had to pay is a 25.00 deductible all repairs have been covered. If anyone has had this issue with their 2000 olds intrigue please comment back and let me know your experience.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I own a 2001 Intrigue and for about 20,000 miles I had the same problem with the car effectively turning off as though the ignition switch was turned off. I was about to replace the ignition switch in a couple of days, when I went to a friend to have him check the computer to see if it was showing any diagnostic problems. I was told that if the SERVICE ENGINE light was not on, that nothing would show up. After explaining my problem, I was advised that it could be a bad ground connection somewhere. I immediately took the car home and checked the ground connection (where the negative post is grounded) just under the battery at the chassis and found it slightly loose. I cleaned the terminal off thoroughly and re-tightened the bolt and have not had a problem since! I found out that this is also the ground for the on board computer and is a critical ground connection.
Hope this helps and that your problem is the same as the one I had.
