  • one2oneone2one Posts: 626
    Want to support the new message boards we have. If the 300M owners can do it, we can too :-)

    76,000 miles on my Intrigue and still kicking!

    Checking in. I hope we can get enough interest to keep this going.
  • dindakdindak Posts: 6,632
    Hope this area will be fun.

    What is the difference between this club and the discussion?
  • limadeltalimadelta Posts: 49
    18000 miles and the 3.5 is still revving like a high-zoot, go-fast car.

    The alternator arrived today and I'll let you know if the current incarnation is the 'fix' that it is supposed to be. To be honest about this flickering thing...it is minor, but I want this caught and fixed before it becomes something that will haunt me a few years from now.

    dindak asks: What is the difference between this club and the discussion?

    You can have as many specific discussions as you like in your club folder. Examples:

    Care & Maintenance
    Dealer Dealings
    Problems & Solutions
    Events & Road Trips
    Accessories & Modifications
    Member Chat

    Whatever you want, just give me a holler and I'll set it up.

    Hi! Thought I'd check in to report gas mileage is now 25.8 MPG with a mix of city & 75mph driving. Love the car but waiting to see if the new-new alternator will fix the dimming. Be sure to report in limadelta....our dealership is trying to get the new alternator as I type.......

    OK, I'll share some details about my Intrigue.

    Forest Green 1999 GL (built 5/99, delivered 6/99)
    3.5L engine

    Options:
    Nuetral leather interior
    CD player / Cassette Deck (6 speaker sound system)
    Steering wheel radio controls

    I currently have about 24K miles on the odometer.
  • 99 DX, black, spoiler. Smooth looking cars, ain't they? just hit 16,400 miles. Bought it at 11k back in November for roughly $13k.
    Except for some of the same small(small??) issues others seem to be having[ popping sound when turning, rough start, etc] I LOVE MY CAR!!

    Just had the AC blower replaced, because it was noisy and squeaky.... also had the AC control head unit replaced, because the AC would turn itself on and off... I'm in Sarasota, FL, and it's too damned hot to tolerate that kind of crap..

    I reported some warping/coming loose around the center A/I vent in the dash.... figured they'd replace the vent cover, or apply glue or something... they're going to replace the entire dash!...wow....well..at least I should have that new car smell back for a while...

    Anyway.... hi, all!

    Hi everyone,
    My 98 Intrigue has just gone over 50,000 miles. The 3800 engine is doing great as is the entire car (especially now that I have new rotors complements of Olds). It is a rare medium Grey-Green color (I don't why Olds dropped this color as I think its the awesome), fully loaded including autobahn package and sunroof.
    I am especially interested to hear of other owner's experience doing recommended maintenance as the mileage increases. So far I have done nothing except change the oil every 4-5,000 miles. However, I plan to change the auto transaxle oil and coolant even though it is not called for until 100,000 miles.

    My first time on this site. My 98 Intrigue is one of the gold ones with the tan interior. Has all the goodies except the CD changer and the Autobahn package. This car is a joy to drive -- wish I could say the same about reliability. More about that later as it will be a long posting.

    Love: looks, performance, features, etc.
    Don't love: interior rattles, suspension.

    Got it in Feb 00 for $20,484 after rebates(everything but the Bose) from fleet guy. I believe it was on the lot for quite a while, hence the price. I guess no one liked the Forest Green except me.
  • swagledswagled Posts: 195
    When I went shopping, there were a lot of white and forest green Inrigues. White I can understand, it's a "rental color". I thought the green looked nice... but the ones I saw had too much optional equipment.

    Green can be something of a "periodic" color. I.e., when I think green, the thought of 1970s Ford Mavericks and Plymouth Dusters come to mind... American automakers seem to have taken a long break from it.

    Some of you will notice that your messages from yesterday no longer exist. There was a major hiccup in the system last evening. Edmunds.com apologizes sincerely for the difficulties this situation poses. Please rest assured that every effort is being expended to rectify this matter as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

    jjpowell2: The newest iteration of the alternator is in and will put installed next week.

    I will let you know how it goes.
  • dupedupe Posts: 1
    I just picked up an 01 Bronze Intrigue GLS last month. Just couldn't resist the rebate and loyalty voucher deal. Why I originally came to this site was to see if I could find any info on the oil filter wrench. Any idea where one can be bought or ordered?
  • b4zb4z Posts: 3,372
    dupe: Try the intrigue VII thread. There should be somebody who knows.
  • dindakdindak Posts: 6,632
    Most of you are coming from the Intrigue thread but anyway.. I have a

    2000 Intrigue GL (Silver Mist)
    Options include : Spoiler, upgrade CD/Tape with steering controls and speakers.
    Purchased at Taylor Chev Olds In Kingston ON in March 2000.
    Currently have 31K kms on the beast
    Problems : faulty temperature gauge fixed under warranty
    General : Love this car like crazy. Recommend to anyone looking at a Maxima or V6 Accord. Great engine and handling!
  • white6white6 Posts: 588
    Most any auto parts store has a wrench that will work. It is simply the "socket" type that fits the small oil filters.
  • tammyj2tammyj2 Posts: 1
