Buy foreign, not an Alero
By Zach on


1999 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan


This car is easily the worst car on the road. Had brakes replaced two months after purchase, then the power windows started to go. Driver-side replaced twice, passenger replaced once and needs to be replaced again. Alternator went out twice, electrical problems are constant, it took Oldsmobile 6 years to recognize a flaw that causes your hazards and turn signals to fail. Wheel bearings have been replaced at least 4 or 5 times, leather peeling off steering wheel. This car eats antifreeze like they're Pringles. There are many many more problems, just do yourself a favor and don't buy an Alero. Send a message to American auto manufacturers and buy foreign.

Best Features

I like the sporty engine and styling, the car has great pickup, but not much else.

Worst Features

Recall all Aleros and refund buyers.
