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

Review

Where to start? Within the first year I owned it; the entire transmission went out. Luckily, the warranty covered that. However, the abs system on this thing is the worst I've ever seen. The ABS light always comes on, they want hundreds to fix it. The worse though is the knock sensor issues. I spent $2000 to fix it once, as soon as I got it back, it went out again. I took into the dealership for that one repair alone over 10 times! They still can't figure it out--the service manager claims its a manufacturing defect. The front CV joints sound like they're about to fall off--every time I turn I hear a loud rubbing noise (Those have been replaced too). Overall, I've suffered too long...

Favorite Features

Nice exterior look. Okay fuel efficiency.

Suggested Improvements

One of the large Asian automakers needs to buy GM, so that they can learn how to make a car that is not going to explode while you're driving down the road.
