2001 Oldsmobile Intrigue Owner Comments

problem #5

Aug 012006

Intrigue 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


1. loose dashboard causing passenger seat airbag to rattle and the cover to lift above the dashboard. This could lead to deployment at anytime of the airbag. 2. turning signal fails to blink on exterior lights when engaged, usually about twice a day. This could lead to me getting a ticket or into an accident in which case the airbag would still be an issue. 3. headlights and interior lights flicker and dim at night. 4. the transmission jumps at certain times, usually when the car is just started and instantly put into gear. There has been no action to fix the air bag, lights or transmission. The turning signal, however, I have checked the wiring for burns and other problems but have found none.

I have almost had my car a whole 2 weeks. I have noticed the lights, dash and head lights, flickering. I called dealership I purchased the car from, and all I got was a guy that told me it was in the Intrigues nature to do that. The flickering is happening when the air pump is cycling on and off he said, again, its just in the Intrigues nature. In its nature or not its not safe ! I have a 4 year old and I can't avoid driving at night just because a car has a defect ! and to top it off no one wants to do anything about it !!

Dashlights and headlights dim as alternator engagues. It is more frequent with increased electrical load. It is like a home which has not been wired properly and when a heavy user of electricy comes on line the lights dim. Am concerned about lights going out or possible fire.

Headlights and interior lights dim frequently, no dealer fix to the problem as of now. This creates a safety problem while driving at night.
