2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL1 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Had nothing but problems with this car
since day 1. Back rotor brakes have
been resurfaced 4 times (only 28K miles
on car) and already need to be done
again. There are random electrical
problems (blinkers will randomly quit
working while driving but turn the
hazard lights on few seconds they will
work again/radio will not turn off
after car is off, keys out and doors
open and will stay on constantly until
suddenly going off as it should) that
they can't seem to find an explanation
for so can't fix. I bought this car
because it claimed to be low
maintenance but has been anything but.
It has been in for repairs at least 6
times a year.
The fact that the radio stays on after
the car is turned off for 10 minutes or
until the drivers door is opened (when
it works). Also when you push the lock
button on door and it gives you 15
seconds after the last door is closed
before it locks then honks to let you
know it is locked.
Needs to be much, much, much, much,
much more reliable than it is. Also
should have been easier to find a
stick. Better cup holder locations in
front (the one on the consol is really
bad with the stick as your arm
constantly hits it).
