2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue GX 3.5 from North America
Drives nice, but at what cost...?
This car, despite its limited use (120000 km) has been have the same on-going problem for about 3 years now. The check engine light comes on, then I take it to the dealer and it's shut off. It stays off for maybe a month and then it's on again. It costs about 100$ to shut it off. It gets expensive.
I really like driving the car, it handles really well. It has a lot of power, too much for a front wheel drive car. When you drive it hard, you get torque steer.
Also, the wheels break traction too easily, even with the traction control on. Many times, trying to get out into a small opening in traffic, I have spun the tires inadvertently.
The interior is uni-colored, grey. I find it bland, and the materials are sub-par in my opinion.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
