2001 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I bought a 2001 Olds Alero GLS in 2005. I've seen the complaints about Aleros and I have changed or repaired things. My repo had 87K miles when I bought it in 2005. Now 127K. I've replaced or repaired the following items: Motor performance computer, interior computer, remote keyless receiver, replaced fuel intake gaskets, replaced A/C compressor, plus I removed the AM/FM/CD radio and bought two extra ones off e-bay ($9.00 each). I cobbled best parts off two and put on the best one. Sold the others on e-bay for $45. That's about it. I did all of the work and bought all parts on e-bay or discount GM dealer on-line for at least 50% discount. 26-32 mpg. This car just keeps running. No oil use.
Very nice radio & sound system. Tire air pressure indicator light. Great gas mileage. Very nice modern interior
No point in kicking this issue. They don't make Oldsmobiles anymore. Great cars.
