Review of the 2001 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, numb steering.

    A five-speed manual transmission is now available with the four-cylinder engine; an eight-speaker premium sound system is now standard on the GLS (optional on GL); and a refined ABS system and 16-inch wheels are now standard on the GLS.

Vehicle: 2001 Oldsmobile Alero GX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Huge discount piqued my interest, but still didn't expect much. Couple of annoyances-water leakage in the cabin during rainstorm (fixed after one visit to the dealer), some minor rattles, and my traction control (or whatever it's called) went out on me unexpectedly (it reset by itself later). Manual transmission is a little notchy, and the other day it popped out of reverse. However, its a big car for the money with a lot of standard features, and the huge discounts (got mine for $14,5K, you can probably get it cheaper now) might make it worth the while. Granted, build quality isn't up to par with Toyota, however much improved over past american cars.
