2001 Oldsmobile Alero Coupe GL1 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

The motor is responsive and has good accelaration. The acceleration is the ONLY good part of the vehicle.


Worst Features

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.

Review

This has been a good vehicle overall, but have had some problems with brakes. I just had to put a head gasket in this motor with 50,000 miles on it, GM warranty did cover the repair cost.

Review

Have had this car since Sept. 01 benn a
guud car exceept fo rthe ABS the light
wil just come on at random and all the
dealer says it is just a sensor that
got a rock in it. th only other
complaint I have with this car is do
not buy it with a sunroof if you are
over 5'9" because you will not fit in
it as I have found out after my growing
years.


Best Features

Styilng and sportiness


Worst Features

Brakes, and lack of headrooom

Review

Let's face it. I've read all the
reviews from others and there are
serious brake problems with this car
that must be manufacturing issues. I
have had warped rotors 3 times within
70,000 miles and the first time was at
only 19K. I think a recall is in order
for the brakes. On a positive note,
the interior of this car is awesome.
I've never had a car with more
comfortable seats. I'm somewhat
disappointed with the gas mileage too.


Best Features

Ergonomic seat design.


Worst Features

Where do I begin.... Ummm it's the brakes dummy!!!!!!

Review

I've had my Alero for a little over 2
and a half years and it's time to get
rid of it! Unfortunately, I'm going to
loose a lot of money because resale is
HORRIBLE, on these cars!


Best Features

It gets pretty good gas mileage, thats about it!


Worst Features

I've had back trouble since I got this car. The seats are hard and VERY uncomfortable. The radio buttons have wore completely off TWICE...and are starting to again. Also had trouble with brakes, the engine hesitating and trouble starting.
