2001 Oldsmobile Alero Coupe 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.

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