I find the Intrigue is the Olds version of the Chev Malibu, probably have comparable numbers. I would give the edge to the Intrigue tho
I think styling wise the olds look better than the malibu as for performance ,I'll ask my neighbor if he we like to line em up ,he'* got a 99 ls

i heard that the Intrigues had the 3.8 for 97-98 and the rest of the years they used the 3.5 but i could be wrong
