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


An Oldsmobile Alero was my first daily driver. It had 88K miles on it when I got it. The first thing I noticed was that the car shifted hard. Even if it shifted from 2nd to 3rd at a measly 2300RPM the car would jolt when it shifted. The second thing I noticed was that the car rode horribly. I got complaints from passengers all the time. The 3rd thing I found out is that my engine was burning 3 quarts of oil at 91K miles. The vehicle started every time I got in it without issue, but the car itself just wasn't great. It drove, rid and acted like a $1000 car. In the end I sold it for $2500 then paid it off so I could buy a $2000 car and have no payments. Haven't been happier.

Best Features

fully electric, good amount of space for passengers and driver, very safe. Interior design was good except for cup holder locations.

Worst Features

Better engine, better transmission, better suspension = great car.
