Pretty car, poorly built
By tnm on


2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL1 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I've had this car for nearly 3 years
now. I regret my purchase.

The Alero has nice styling, decently
performs, but is very poorly built.
Rotors warp easily, the doors leak, the
A/C leaks into the dash, door panels
warp easily, the dashboard
creaks/squeaks, and now a recall for the
hazard flashers. Body panel fit is
lousy, and the switchgear is cheap. Do
yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

Best Features

Styling, basic interior design, brake pedal feel.

Worst Features

Desparately needs better build quality and for GM to actually have some customer service.
