2001 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I did a lot of travel in 2000 and ended
up renting the Alero several times. I
really liked the layout of the interior
and when I got a GLS version, the 6
cylinder had plenty of power.
I was able to find exactly the model I
wanted at a local dealer when GM was
offering incentives, so I got a fully
loaded 2001 silver model.
The problems have been minimal in my
opinion, and the build quality is ok
for an American car, much better than I
remember after owning several foreign
models. Make sure to get the
handling package option.
I would recommend the car based on my
good power and handling, interior
layout, good driving position, audio
Add more sound insulation around the
engine, engine noise a bit intrusive,
especially under acceleration.
