Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 160,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue. While making a turn at 5 mph, the wheel detached from the vehicle. Since that time, whenever the wheel is turned to the left, the vehicle lifts up. The contact discovered NHTSA campaign id number 03V527000 (steering:rack and pinion) for the same symptoms she was experiencing with her vehicle. The manufacturer has not been notified and the vehicle has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were 160,000.

Computer would not allow car to start. Paint chipping on all fender edges. Constant flat tires, one near wreck on freeway due to leaking rims that mechanic says should never be driven in the winter becasue the rims will not hold up to the weather.

Olds crome plated the orignal stock alum. Wheels making the wheels thicker, thus the wheels throw off the weights and not the wheels are pealing inside. If the weights are forced down it breakes the tire beed causing a flat. All the Intrigue's with crome aluminum wheels are affected I have taken pictures of the autos on different lots and all are the same. I went to 5 different places to balance these wheels to no avail, and am on my third set of tires.
