2004 Oldsmobile Alero GX 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

engine and trans going strong at over 200k. had to repair a rocker arm in engine as only major repair and it was only $300. weakness is wheel bearings but are easy to change. comfortable driver seat. good power in v6 and 27-28 mpg avg for my 90 mile commute with 70% of the commute on freeway at 70mph. nice padded interior vs the cheesy plastic interiors on new cars. Wish I could buy a new one.

Review

I bought my car used 2 years ago and it now has 174,000 miles on it and it's still going strong.
Only problems I have had was the fuel pump and the alternator went out. Oh and the pass key thing had problems but there is a easy fix for that if you Google it and it consists
of a inexpensive diode being soldered into the wiring.
Would I recommend this car even with the high miles mine has.... You bet I would.

Review

For the price we paid, this is a wonderful family car. There is more than enough trunk space to carry our baby stroller and a full cart of groceries. Gas mileage is decent: we average between 20-25 MPG.


Best Features

-Large trunk -Can fit in smaller parking spots -Easy to maintain -Good gas mileage


Worst Features

-Better stock suspension -More cushion for back seat -Better quality of interior material

Review

I have a 2004 Alero v6 4 door. Let me put it this way, I have had the car for 6 years and there is a new problem every time I turn around. I have had the brakes and rotors replaced 3 times. The wiring harness behind the steering wheel was replaced once and needs to be replaced again. This car is a magnet for old people to hit. Now my car wont start. This has to be the worst car I have had. General maintenance isn't doing anything for this car.


Best Features

CD player, electronic seats


Worst Features

Can't improve when car isn't made anymore.
