A Good Car at a Reasonable Price
By David on


2001 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


I bought my Alero GLS new. The included 5-year/60,000 mile total warranty offer is what convinced me to buy it over a Honda Accord or a Toyota Camry. I have been totally pleased. There are small annoyances: too much road noise, the front cup holder, and a few too many (warranted) repairs. But the car is a blast to drive, and I felt I got a lot of car for much less money than I would have paid for either of the other cars. My greatest complaint is the long start / two-try start which the dealer says is normal. It isn't, and it's embarrassing. Overall a very good value over the 4 years I have now owned it. If they were still made, I'd probably buy another in a year or so.

Best Features

Sporty, exhilerating performance; Handles curves like a European car; Plenty of storage areas in passenger compartment; Feels solid; Stereo is well done.

Worst Features

The front cup holder is ludicrously placed. There is too much road noise at freeway speeds. The starting issue should not exist.
