Great Alero by J.R from Denver on 09/17/2005. Trim: 1999 Oldsmobile Alero GL Coupe, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Everything. Ours now has 70,000 miles and still reuns great. We have had no problems since new.
Cons: I wish the gas tank had been a little bigger.
Overall review: An excellent car.

Buy this car, if you're a masochist by John on 09/08/2002. Trim: 1999 Oldsmobile Alero GLS Sedan, Owned 3 years.
Pros: The 1999 Alero was very stylish and the $3,000 rebate was great. However, this vehicle depreciated 50% of the sticker price, within 18 months of purchase. A little sluggish on acceleration, but intially a nice car.
Cons: Rotors on brakes have been replaced twice within 50,000 miles.Apparently, this is a common problem, which GM did not issue a recall on. Also, the ABS module went out at 30,000 miles. Dashboard wrinkled and had to be replaced.GM should be sued if they don't fix these consistent problems free.You can't give an Alero away. At least the Edsel ran!!!
Overall review: Don't buy, unless your brother-in-law is a good mechanic and you have so much money, that you don't know what to do with it. However, fishermen do have an advantage- the Alero would make a nice vehicle to sink off-shore to make a home for the fish.

Nice but leaves you broke! by Lilred from Ft Wayne, IN on 06/02/2003. Trim: 1999 Oldsmobile Alero GL Sedan, Owned 2 years.
Pros: I like the style and size...the interior is leather and is very comfortable...the ride is good.
Cons: The brake system sucks, which seems to be the biggest complaint. But the mfg co sent letters about the tires being the wrong size for the rims (hence the rubbing sound on the front wheels) and they only replace those still under mfg warranty(36K mi.) So those of us with ext warranties and 50K mi. or more are SOL. I have complaints similar to others but these are the ones that have bugged me the most. My friend with the same car only 2 years newer than mine complains about the same things...
Overall review: Nice car, 24 mi to gal of gas, comfortable to drive but the manufacturer of Olds should take care of defects in tires, rims, brake pads & rotors on this model even on ext. warranties.

beautiful car by heather from champaign, illinois on 02/27/2003. Trim: 1999 Oldsmobile Alero GL Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I love the way this car looks runs and handles. Its got a sporty look to it but at the same time theres still plenty of room inside for a family.
Cons: the gas mileage could be a little better but compared to a lot of cars in this price range it is well worth it!
Overall review: i would recommend this car to anyone looking for a family car with a little umph and GREAT LOOKS!
