Review of the 2000 Oldsmobile Alero

  • The Alero combines attractive styling, potent engines and extensive standard equipment in a crisp-handling package.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sleek styling, brisk performance and handling, ergonomically designed interior, well-equipped standard model.

  • Cons

    Hint of cheapness to interior bits, unrefined engine noise intrudes into passenger compartment, ugly cloth fabric pattern on GX and GL.

    A performance suspension is newly optional on GL models. The four-cylinder gets a composite intake manifold, while all models benefit…

I'm going to miss this

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan

My wife bought this car Brand New from the dealer. we've had it for 10 yrs now and its been wonderful. Very few problems the fuel pump went at 70k which i hear is very common, and we've replaced all the power window switches. everything else is great, very fun to drive and very roomy. I'm trading it in and I'm going to miss this car.




B-e-a-utiful!

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan

Over all an amazing car. Reliable, handles well in the snow, and over all speedy. the only draw backs would be a wavy interior on the dash.




Great car!

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan

I have owned this vehicle for almost 8 years. I bought it in 2001 and it only had about 9000 miles on it. It was previously a rental car out of the state of Washington. This car still runs almost like new! I change the oil every 3000 miles and do basic maintenance (very minimal). This car has had a security problem (fixed for about $300.00 with no other problems), and also has had the rotors replaced 2x but I guess that should be expected with 180,000 miles. This has been a GREAT car and I would highly recommend it. I am even considering buying another when this one finally quits.

What's New for 2000

A performance suspension is newly optional on GL models. The four-cylinder gets a composite intake manifold, while all models benefit from the addition of three rear-shelf anchors for child safety-seat restraints. If glitz is your thing, you can now opt for a new gold package on GL and GLS versions.
