2001 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased this car used and within the first week the sunroof brackets broke, body had rust cavities in it within the first year of owning and at about 85,000 miles both windows stopped working (2 door model). Not so impressed with the design under the hood... Still gets me from point a to point b. It has helped having the knowledge to do my own work. Would not recommend this as a first car with how much get up and go mine still has and how untrustworthy it is in snow.
Could have 1.put the starter either a) behind a mud shield or b) up top 2.moved the oil filter to a more convenient place 3.used more available sized tires and not those low profile jobbers.... the list goes on...
