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


I bought this car at 38,000 miles and put 53,000 miles on it. It has needed the kinds of repairs every car needs - a new thermostat, starter, and a power-window motor. I also had to get new wheel bearings for the front wheels. The one bad thing is the rims. 3 of them are bent, but I do live in New York City. Everyone says they're pretty cheap though. Otherwise, it's a fun, zippy car to drive and the GLS model with a moonroof and spoiler is a good looking car.

Best Features

It handles well and is good looking.

Worst Features

Improve the rims. The engine is ridiculously tight and compact so that you have to take out 30 components just to replace basic parts, i.e. thermostat and oil filter.
