2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL1 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Going from always having driven Hondas...this was a rude awakening! The only GM product I would consider in the future would be a truck/suv. The Alero is zippy and pretty fun to drive, but not the highest performing vehicle by any means....I like the V6 and would have been very unhappy I feel with the 4-cyl. I just hope I can sell it after hearing the crash test results!!!

Review

I have found the 2001 Oldsmobile Alero 2 door GL Sedan an absolutely wonderful buy. It's nice and roomy, comfortable, very driveable, and very eye-catching with or without spoiler or other add- ons. Overall I've found this car to be quite a nine.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

We bought our Alero brand new off the lot. It is a 4dr GLS V6 w/Sun & Sound pkg & has a sweet looking maroon paint. It is a sharp looking car. It's peppy & gets decent gas mileage. Ours had very good fit & finish & thus far (approx. 26K miles), we have had no major problems, though I think the brakes will need replacing soon. The front end is pretty low. My wife has already beat the heck out of the black rubber/plastic thing under the front by hitting curbs & tire stops. My wife complained about the moonroof rattling (I never noticed it), so Arnold Palmer Olds replaced the cover. No other problems with the moonroof.

20,000 miles and better than I expected

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

Review

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.

Review

This car is really fun to drive. I've owned it for 11 months, 11,000 miles. No problems except for a slow leak in one tire. Quiet, great stereo, comfortable, even for a larger person.

This car has been a great family car that is fun to drive. Mine has the sun and sound package, which is a sunroof and upgrade CD/cass/am/fm radio. These features make the car joy to drive.

Trouble Car

2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL1 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)

Review

Approx. 6 mos. after purchasing the vehicle, we had a minor rainstorm, and the driver side window wouldn't go up or down (power). Had the connection repaired. Next night, we had a MAJOR rainstorm, and the problem happened again. Shortly after, the radio stopped working due to a wire being disconnected by the dealer (their fault). After that was repaired, because of the location of the wire in the driver side, it became disconnected again. Then the starter started messing up...sometimes it takes up to 6 tries to turn the engine over. Now the coolant light comes on, chimes, and goes off. My car is currently considered a "Friday Night Special"
