2004 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have been an Olds owner for exactly
one year and 3 weeks and already I
have racked up a ton of miles. The
car is addictive to drive and the
acceleration is awsome. Only one
thing, the interior is mighty cheap
as well as a few minor electrical
problems that have started to occur
when I hit the 50,000 mile mark.
Overall, I'd say that this vehicle is
great engine wise) however it is not
intended for people who want to steer
away from speeding tickets.


Best Features

Sporty Style, Acceleration, Fog lights


Worst Features

BETTER QUALITY INTERIOR!!!!!!!

2004 Oldsmobile Alero GL2 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I needed to replace a mini-van that was
worn out and I was plain tired of minivans.
Honda Element... too wierd, Honda
Civic..too small, Accord...too $$. I have
owned a couple Hondas and they have the
occasional quality issue anemic heaters etc.
A used car lot had a Buick Rendez. and
noticed a dozen 2004 Alero program cars.
They were clean, comfortable, and CHEAP.
I got an 6cyl, with ABS, power seat, CD and
wing. Hey this is comfy and I was out the
door for $11000 and they took my Chevy
APV with a bad tranny on trade. The Alero is
nice, ABS is good compared to the
unrefined ABS Chevy put in the APV in
1995. There is a fit problem with the center
dash vent. I am HAPPY and NOT car poor.


Best Features

Sound system is trick with speed sensitive volume adjust. Seating position and control placement more perfect than Accord for me. Firm/but not too firm suspension, sporty feel. I really like this car, not sure if I would like it as much if I had paid closer to sticker. I paid $11000 with 12k mile


Worst Features

All the Olds were so pretty the last couple years. Sad to see them go. Better interior fit and finish. Otherwise a fine car at a basic price with not so basice features.

2004 Oldsmobile Alero GL2 2dr Coupe (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I just bought my Alero 5 days ago. I
really like it and it feels durable.
Has nice features and looks sleek.
Hoping the car with be dependable and
last.


Best Features

All electric, alarm, the radio stays on until the door opens, the day light, and the many other features.


Worst Features

I would include a lighted mirror on both sunvisors, and move the cup holder so that it's not in front of the shifter. Also add pin stripping as an option.

Review

I have always dreamed of owning this
car since they first came out, but was
never in the market for one since I
already owned two reliable cars. It
didn't seem like much since to buy a
third until my husband was in an
accident with our one car, so then it
was perfect timing to buy a 2004 and we
are so happy with it. It's very fun to
drive and you get lots of looks from
people and compliments.


Best Features

Pretty much everything!


Worst Features

The passenger side visor needs a mirror.
