A great all-around car
By W. Tersch on


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


I bought my Alero certified used five years ago, and it remains a beautiful and practical car inside and out. Low mileage Oldsmobile are one of the best bargains out there and have served several friends well too. I replaced a power steering pump and a ventilation resistor under warranty, and a small screw cover fell off, but other than that, smooth sailing for daily driving and road trips after 70k miles. This car handles Chicago winters well with its wide tires, front wheel drive, traction control, and ABS. Still in love with it!

Best Features

The torquey 3.4 L provides responsive power and up to 32 MPG for this relatively lightweight car, and the leather interior with sun & sound package is excellent. Great 8-speaker audio. The folding seats have allowed me to transport two bikes and three people inside the car.

Worst Features

Front cup holder is a bit tight; rear cup holder is chintzy but effective.
