Olds Alero GX 2 door Coupe by Victari, From western U.S. on 07/31/2012. Trim: 2003 Oldsmobile Alero GX Coupe, Owned 3 years.
Pros: smooth ride, easy to drive, comfortable for extended periods (5+ hour trips), reliable, spacious, lots of features, strong AC, decent stock stereo, I personally like the interior a lot. I have not had the usual problems with my Alero (wheel bearings, electrics, etc.). The car handles like a champ, and the 2.2L engine is fast when you want it and still gets decent mpg. I personally get around 25-27mpg in town and 33-35mpg on the highway, I rarely drive fast or race around. Also, in the time I've owned my car the value has gone up by about $1,000.
Cons: I have had only one problem in the time Ive owned my Alero (61,000 miles to currently 94,000 miles). The plastic cup and ball joint attached to the clutch linkage, that goes through the firewall, broke. After it was fixed there was a strange squeaky noise when the clutch was depressed for about a month.
Overall review: Ive been taking good care of my Alero and its been an excellent car for my purposes. Superb value for money. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice looking, fast, coupe that comfortably seats four people. I also recommend that you do your research on these cars before you buy them, avoiding the ones that have chronic problems or have the features that tend to have problems (electric windows, etc). With a little look into the car you could walk away with a gem.

Alero is ok but lacks overall quality by dents on 07/20/2011. Trim: 2003 Oldsmobile Alero GL1 Sedan, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Nice ride
Cons: Poor quality overall. Front bearings need replacing. Intake manifold went. Blinker kept making ticking sound. GM is making better products now but they really upset a lot of people with their lack of quality.
Overall review: Been an alright car for the money but looking at other manufacturers as GM just lacks the reliability of some of the other car makers.

Oldsmobile Cruiser! by Nikita in Michigan on 04/02/2009. Trim: 2003 Oldsmobile Alero GL2 Sedan, Owned 5 years.
Pros: This has been an awesome, dependable vehicle that I will drive until it won't drive no more! It handles very well in the snow, and drives like a dream. Love it. Love it. Love it.
Cons: I did have to replace my driver side wheel bearings twice now, but the repair man said that is a common problem with these cars. It probably doesn't help that i have to dodge a bunch of potholes. Some of the details have rubbed off of the some of the buttons. Other than that this is the best car I've ever owned.
Overall review: I recommend this car to anyone that is looking for a dependable vehicle, with great gas mileage and will last them a long time. It looks great, and rides like a dream!
