2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought my 2000 Alero used in 2005 when it had about 86,000 miles on it. I have never had a problem with my car. It has been a great first vehicle for me. Still runs great with 130,000 miles on it.


Worst Features

Only wish it that it came with heated seats which unfortunately wasn't an option then on Aleros.

2000 Oldsmobile Alero GL 4dr Sedan


Review

Major repairs: Transmission blew up at 95,000 miles, although 80% of my driving is on the highway. Replaced fuel pump at 60,000. Minor repairs: Two stuck front calipers. 1 front wheel bearing, intermittent driver side power window. Leaking intake gasket and transmission gasket. Power steering hose disconnected. Fan resistor replaced twice. I do expect the car to have some things to fix once in a while, but I do not accept a premature transmission or fuel pump failure. GM, you fooled me.


Best Features

Low windshield washer display. Low tire pressure indicator.


Worst Features

On/off switch for abs brakes (it would be better for breaking on ice/snow)

2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car 6 years ago. The kids were much smaller then. Now that they are leggy teens, the back seat is small for 3 of them. But I find that the car is a great family vehicle. nice body style, and fairly peppy.


Best Features

automatic headlights


Worst Features

Definitely the brakes and rotors. I have replaced breaks and warped rotors too many times for the amount of time I have owned it.

2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 2dr Coupe


Review

I love the way my car looks and handles (it's the 3.4L v6 coupe) I do not like the way the intake manifold gasket fails, the dash peels or the control arm bushings squeak. Nice power (can beat the boys at a light, is quick off the line)and huge sunroof, but can prove costly when repairs are needed.


Best Features

Big sunroof, cute spoiler, power everything and smooth ride with tight handling that corners well.


Worst Features

Shame on them for a v6 with consistent failures (dexcool lasts 100,000 miles?? and a lower gasket that will inevitably leak). A warning to all grand-am owners with the 3.4 v6...you're riding around on the same engine...maybe Olds should throw in the towels...(ha!)
