I really like the Alero - I have had some problems with the interior lining on the doors, radiator/coolant system, and the power windows falling into the doors (3 of the 4) - but otherwise, the car has been great. I just took a job which I will be commuting over 80 mi per day, so I will be needing to trade in the alero for a car with a little better gas mileage. If my commute were shorter, I would probably drive this car for a few more years at least.
Roomy interior (I am tall). Nice drive
Interior lining - better craftsmanship needed - I had to take it in for repair in the 1st year I had it; Better quality power window motors (3 of the 4 windows have broken)
