Alero is Junk by Disapointed from PA on 06/29/2005. Trim: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GL1 Coupe, Owned 4 years.
Pros: This vehicle has a nice look and has all the options. I love that lights turn automatically off if left on.
Cons: Had so- many problems with this car. The first day getting it home the moonroof stoppped working (at 30000 mi.) two months later I had to replace the intake gasket ($600) Then a year and half later had to replace it again ($600) I had to replace rotars and brakes and have noisy brakes. The passenger door leaks water, had to replace the water pump at about (50000 mi) ($300) CD player skips ALL the time cassette player ate a tape and the dash board is starting to bubble up.
Overall review: NEVER EVER buy an Alero its a lemon.

A lovin' Alero by Delightfully Driving in Jersey on 07/16/2008. Trim: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS Sedan, Owned 9 years.
Pros: Great looking ride, have owned it for 5 years and not many problems. Have about 83,000 miles on it now. Once the power window went out, luckily it was still under warrenty. Excels and is much more powerful than I expected (wow !!) Love the CD, cassette,radio build in.The car is paid for as of December '07 and I plan to drive it until it dies........!!!!
Cons: The head gasket went and I had to come out of pocket for that($400)bucks and then the cruise control went at about 60,000 miles on a long distance trip ! I plan to see how much that would be to repair. The Seat adjustment is sucky but Other wise no other problems to speak of.
Overall review: Good car, good looking, fast, reliable transportation,nice trunk space, good milage.

Olds Alero is a great car. by Russ from Chico on 01/22/2007. Trim: 2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS Coupe, Owned 3 years.
Pros: First of all, it looks really cool, and not many people have this car, so its unique. Everyone and their grandma has a honda civic or ford mustang, driving down the road, I'm usually the only guy with one and I love it. I've had it for 2.5 years so far, and only minor problems.
Cons: The breaks arent the best, I suppose I can upgrade those without a huge cost if I want.
Overall review: Overall, for me this is a great car. I have the 3.4 V6 and its got plenty of power, although I've done some modifications to increase horsepower. Funny when honda guys try to race me, its like, byebye, haha.
