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


Overall I have pleased with the
vehicle. The main problem I have
experienced has been the brakes. We
had to replace brakes & rotors at only
30,000 miles and they still make a
grinding noise with the new brakes.
This is a definite manufacturing/design
flaw on Oldsmobile's part. Brakes are
not something you should short change
on a car. This is a definite safety
issue. The second issue I have is that
the service engine soon light came on &
won't go off. The third issue is a
lagging starter. Sometimes it works
beautifully & then others I have to
prime it to get it to start.

Worst Features

Real brakes. More room, seems cramped.
