2001 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
The car is a real thrill to drive, with plenty of zip off of stoplights to take care
of Civics and Eclipses. The handling is aggressive and crisp, and the
acceleration is outstanding. The engine has a nice growl to it, if you like that
sort of thing. I've definately gotten nothing but positive comments from
friends and strangers. My major complaints are with rear visibility, due to
the high back end, and the extremely large tailights. They're unique, but
they're a blaitant attempt to shed Oldsmobile's "your father's car" steriotype.
Acceleration, handling, gas milage all outstanding. Definately encourages
taking the long way home from work. The engine has a nice growl to it, if
you like that sort of thing.
Rear visibility is not good. The engine is loud, if you don't like that.
