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.

  • 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.

About to retire black beauty

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GX 2dr Coupe

I bought this car years ago used from a car dealer in Scarborough. It was very cheap (probably because of 5spd gear box and dent in hood) and my expectations were quite low. I just needed a car for the winter. It lasted a LOT longer than one winter. The 2.4l engine feels gutless in normal driving but when you put your foot down it picks up the pace nicely, albeit with plenty of noise which seems to be typical of GM four cylinders. I have full records of what has been replaced from new: Connecting pipe, small vacuum hose, blower motor resistor, rear window heating module, rear speakers, all struts/shocks/springs, gas cap, brakes x3 with new calipers, emerg brake cable, drivers seat back.




I love my car, but.......

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GX 2dr Coupe

Very fun to drive and gets good mileage, but have had annoying probs. Window on driver side fell in door, rotors and brakes go once a year, power lock thing on driver door fell in, I could go on but I'll spare ya. Overall, it is a good vehicle. Cheaply made, but good in the snow and good on the gas.




Fun, looks great & only

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GX 2dr Coupe

I bought the car used with 33000 miles on an impulse when I was actually looking for a used suburban. I haven't regreted it. It is one of the nicest looking cars out there,is fun to drive and has had only a couple insignifigant problems. I drive 400 miles every other weekend and enjoy it. I drive hard (just ask my poor passangers)and haven't seen the rapid brake wear even the mechanic told me to expect.




Don't love it as much

Vehicle: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GX 2dr Coupe

Although I love my car, the doors leak during hard rain and has been in the shop over 8 times for them to try to fix with no resolution. My brakes/rotors have been worked on twice, were replaced the second time before the vehicle reached 26000 miles! I will not buy another GM vehicle, but I have to admit that I love my car... it's my first new car and I've gone through too many of the same problems in less than 3 years of ownership.




I love this car
