2001 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
We bought our Alero brand new off the
lot. It is a 4dr GLS V6 w/Sun & Sound
pkg & has a sweet looking maroon
paint. It is a sharp looking car.
It's peppy & gets decent gas mileage.
Ours had very good fit & finish & thus
far (approx. 26K miles), we have had no
major problems, though I think the
brakes will need replacing soon.
The front end is pretty low. My wife
has already beat the heck out of the
black rubber/plastic thing under the
front by hitting curbs & tire stops.
My wife complained about the moonroof
rattling (I never noticed it), so
Arnold Palmer Olds replaced the cover.
No other problems with the moonroof.
We love the stereo, the large trunk,
the comfortable seating (even in the
back), the driving characteristics, &
From our experience and others I've
read, I would say improve the standard
