2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL1 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Don't buy this car if your life depends on it. The computer system is garbage, mine has been repaired over four times and it is still broken. The security system is broken, and the car won't start. The windows leak, ruining the carpet (which won't be replaced) and after they are fixed, they fall off the track. The rotors warped after only 12,000 miles and only third party replacements make it stop. The intake manifold leaks coolant.
The motor is responsive and has good accelaration. The acceleration is the ONLY good part of the vehicle.
Oldsmobile is now out of business, but the Pontiac Grand Am is the same car. They should stop making such an expensive non-reliable car. GM should be ashamed of themselves. I will NEVER buy another American made vehicle again because of this experience.
