Annoying Problems
By AJB on


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


I have owned my Alero for a little over a year. The car is a solid drive, fast and fun, but I have been plagued by annoying problems. For example it's been in to the shop four times for the "service engine soon" light coming on. Turned out to be the O2 sensor each time, not particularly expensive but annoying just the same. Also the brakes are always noisy and seem to wear out quickly.Even with new rotors I still feel like it grates and grinds too much. The power windows have also caused a problem recently. Great looking car and real fun drive, but having previously owned a Japanese car, I think I'll head East again next time I buy. Make sure you like your dealer....you'll be back.

Worst Features

Brakes. Alter the O2 sensor or shut off the thing totally. Modern gizmos are more hassle than they are worth.
