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


I have had one of these cars for 7 months now. Got it at 75K miles ran pretty good, now at 86K miles and well..it's not going to well. The engine burns oil already, the transmission shifts hard and slow(Checked the fluid, it's fine) The ride in this car is well..bad. You can feel every bump, it's loud, especially on the highway, expect to have to turn the radio up. The engine is very loud, and I have the 2.4L 4 cylinder engine and it's also very slow, it literally sounds and accelerates as if it had a big diesel engine in it. It averages 19 City, 25 Highway which is pretty bad for a car..especially considering it has a 4 cylinder engine...It's also not very comfortable...

Best Features

Hasn't ever let me down in the past 11k miles, VERY safe.

Worst Features

If you're going to buy American 1995-2005 buy a Ford. GMC and Dodge had a lot of problems in that time slot. Better yet, you should probably buy a Toyota, Honda, Nissan or KIA at that point.
