Pros: on/off automatic headlights
Cons: rear seats dont stay in place.
Advice: Cant go wrong with this car..!!A great car for anyone in the market for a nice midsize sedan or coupe. Comfortable interior, easy to use ergonomics, and good visability. Powertrain is excellent especially the V6, ample power and super quiet operation throughout powerband. Just a great car and a great value for anyone in the market for a good car.
Cons: Interior room is on the small side, but not bad.
Advice: Try to find a better value for what you get.The 2.2L is peppy, handling is great. I love the look of the car, especially the interior. It feels like a luxury car although I paid only 17150 after discount and 2750 in rebates! But, it also has the looks and feel os a sports car. Awesome (upgrade) sterio system! Tons of really nice standard features that I couldn't find on the competitors vehicles.
Cons: NOISY ENGINE AND HARD RIDING
Advice: DRIVE A TOYOTA AVALON AND ACURA T-L TO COMPARETHIS CAR IS NOTHING LIKE THE BROCHURE STATES. I THOUGHT I WAS BUYING A MID SIZED LUXURY CAR AND WHAT I HAVE IS A CAR WITH EXCESSIVE ENGINE NOISE, VERY HARD RIDING ( SIMULAR TO A PICKUP TRUCK ) AND EXCESSIVE WIND NOISE WHEN DRIVING OVER 60 MPH. WHEN COMPARED TO CARS IN THIS PRICE RANGE , AVALON, ACURA T-L LINCOLN LS , INFINITY I-35 MAXIMA ECT. THIS CAR IS NO WHERE NEAR AS GOOD. THE INTERIOR IS PUT TOGETHER CHEAPLY, RATTLES, LOOSE PARTS AND VIBRATIONS ARE PRESENT IN THE PASSENGER COMPARTMENT.
Cons: can't think of anything
Advice: heated seats are the way to go.I love the feel of this car!!! The Intrigue has so much room and more than enough power for anything I plan on doing with it. I am glad that ours has a spoiler on it, otherwise it may be hard to see exactly where the end of the trunk is.
Pros: Power driver seat with memory feature.
Cons: Transmission downshifts trying to maintain speed. Noisy.
Advice: This is an underpowered vehicle. The transmission and engine works overtime.Other reviewers, including professionals, fail to mention that this vehicle is underpowered. They say it has adequate power. Don't believe it! The 3.4 engine just doesn't get it. There is a continual downshifting and upshifting annoyance when driving on the slightest uphill grades, even on interstates. That translates into transmission and engine overwork and noise, bigtime. Most other aspects of this vehicle are highly commendable, both interior and exterior.
Cons: can't use my favorite coffee cups- too big around
Advice: don't test drive unless you plan to buyThe seats on the GLS sold us. Much more comfortable than the competition. Engine is very responsive any really gets up and goes. I had really planned to buy a Honda Accord but this car has it all over the Accord. I've only put about 1100 miles on it but very impressed.
Pros: separate heated seat and back
Cons: no mute button for the radio on the steering column, I had that on my Grand Prix and I miss that feature
Advice: Make sure the seat belt situation is something you are happy withIt's fun to drive! It's very comfortable, sporty yet elegant. I am very pleased with my choice. The Bose stereo sounds great. The only problem I've experienced is that the passenger side seat belt locks up as soon as it's fastened, you can't even reach the glove box or radio. I've contacted Olds and they tell me this is normal operation, if so, I am not at all pleased. Seat belts are not supposed to lock up that tightly unless there is a sudden stop. Other than that, I say 'go for it!'
