Another one for the junkyard to be parted out by Joe columbia TN. on 12/10/2007. Trim: 2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL4 Sedan, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Looks nice and sporty
Cons: repairs,after 3 years brakes seem to drag many brake pads and rotors, wheel bearings repaced at 80,000 miles, blower knob going bad, cooling leak cylinder headgasket, off track lite comes on and off shiftes funny when it does it transmission going out, rattle in driver door when opening and shutting, and power lock switch fell in door. gas cap inop,left axel going bad, wheel covers hard to get on and off replaced. horn honks when shut off sometimes
Overall review: I have owned many GM cars but this one is junk. what am I going to do with this one??? With GM cooling leaks seem to be the norm and head gaskets have to be replaced. from 1996 on. be carefull out there have the cars cooling system inspected that means pressurized even a dealer will sell you junk. get the warrenty that covers seals and gaskets. better yet stay away from GM small cars alltogether.. thay know of the problems but will not stand behind there product the new warrenty dosn't go far with GM you need 10years 100,000 mile for there cars.
