2001 Oldsmobile Alero GX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A) 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.
Lots of Std. equipment, foldback seats, strong standard 4-cylinder (150 h.p. has kick with 5-speed)
notchy shifter, minor rattles, anticipated low resale value
