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

Review

Overall I have pleased with the vehicle. The main problem I have experienced has been the brakes. We had to replace brakes & rotors at only 30,000 miles and they still make a grinding noise with the new brakes. This is a definite manufacturing/design flaw on Oldsmobile's part. Brakes are not something you should short change on a car. This is a definite safety issue. The second issue I have is that the service engine soon light came on & won't go off. The third issue is a lagging starter. Sometimes it works beautifully & then others I have to prime it to get it to start.

Suggested Improvements

Real brakes. More room, seems cramped.
