I purchased this car about 8 months ago and have put lots of mileage on it. I have replaced 2 front rotors and brakes and drivers side window regulators. The interior is made real cheap and you can tell, and stereo keys fell off within weeks of having the car, but it has been pretty much reliable. I would not buy another one, but its been okay while it lasted.

Bought this car with about 21,000 on the odometer. Now has 53,000 mi. and so far it's still running well. The front tires seemed to wear down evenly, but quickly. Make sure you do tire rotations regularly. Love the way the Alero handles on dry road...even wet not too bad, but less than stellar in the snow.

After leasing an Alero in '99, I bought
another 4 door GX in 2002, but this one
was a manual. This car was a steal and
with the rebates I was able to get it
for $17k. The car drives beautifully
and gives off a solid feel. I had
minimum problems only having problems
with the backseat door paneling pealing
due to the extreme Arizona heat. If I'm
ever in an accident, I have the
confidence that the other car won't
punch a hole in the Alero like paper
machete. With it's sporty exterior and
manual transmission to boot, provides
me the pleasure of driving a sport car
at a reasonable price. Great car.

This was my first car. I have always
drove my parents cars which are both
German and cost a lot more than my
Alero. The Alero is not a sports car,
but I like it a lot. The steering is
great and its fun to drive around town
and on short road trips. Mine is one
and a half years old and has 45,000
miles and it works great.

Every aspect of this car has been
outstanding. Fit and finish are first
rate. The GX sport package is a great
value, and the 5-speed getrag tranny is
very tight and crisp. I'm not usually
a fan of 4 cylinder engines, but the
2.2 ecotec is super smooth, yet still
