Vehicle2002 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewI bought my Alero after lots of rentals, and loved it at first. However, all of the typical quirks I read about on this car have occurred. Steering cylinder failure; plugged heater core (Dexcool) b/c sediment collects at lowest point=heater; Intake gasket=Dexcool problem; ABS sensor failure; Early transmission slip failures; gas tank solenoid (check engine); alloy wheels corrode/leak at tire lips; premature serpentine belt wear/squeaking. Too bad, as it would be a great car if GM would have address the reliability issues before tiring the line.
Best FeaturesGood engine power; lumbar support good. Dash visibility good. Love the stereo. Good information display. Good visibility, and reasonable breaking. Paint has held up so far.
Worst FeaturesWish I could reach the rear plugs; Every place Dexcool touches gets plugged or eaten way. Check engine light issues are annoying.
