I'd had my eye on Alero's for quite
awhile, and was very impressed with how
affordable they were and the features
that were included. I have a 2000
model with about 65K on it, and
unfortunately have spent too much money
on all kinds of maintenance problems.
Less than a year into the buy I had to
have the rotors and tires replaced, and
a year after that I'm in a world of
hurt with a new thermostat and
potentially a gasket leak. It's fun to
drive, and I've been more than happy
with it up til recently, but don't have
a lot of faith in it anymore. Maybe
it's just the V6, but I can't keep gas
in the thing either.
The V6 engine has great pickup and is
fun to drive.
Front cupholder is almost useless.
Warning lights are great, but go on if
you even look at the car funny.
