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.

2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012003

Intrigue 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 31,000 miles


Fail to start and it was at the dealer 3 times, we didn't get receipts, and they say 2 times. They could not find the problem and we went weeks and months without any problem. It started again this Feb and "every" time we tried to drive it, we had to jump it. The dealer took it in this past month and said he couldn't find anything wrong, of course, it's out of warranty with only today we are paying to have a private repair man find and fix the problem, which we think is a starter. We do not have records of when the problem started, only the year, so therefore I'm putting in Jan 1 for asterik.
