Mom finally took my advice and traded in her 2002, 67,000km Olds Intrigue
for a 2006 Impala LT. The Intrigue needed brakes, again, and another ball
joint. Funny, she walk into the dealer and said "my car needs brakes, I want
a new one." Don't know anything other than it has the LT trim and she most
likely stuck with the 3.5L engine. I'm going to stick my nose under the hood
next time I'm around.
One thing that caught my eye, it has 211hp, not 210 or 215, but 211. GM must
be using a new standard for horsepower rating because it always used to be
in increments of 5 and only the imports were by 1s.
Anyway, now I'm pissed I struggled with the stupid blower motor resitor pack
in the Intrigue on my vacation.
