Trollalero — last dyno made 209 hp to the motor and 190 to wheels with 220 lbs of torque...weighs 2783 lbs with driver lol 0-60 id say is somewhere in the mid 6's so pretty slow mods are cai, exhaust, bigger throttle body, zzp chip....and weight reduction

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

I miss this car more than most of the others I have owned.

Cons

LIM, Wheel Bearings and Buying Junk Struts.

55

Alero — Loved this car. Loved how it handled after it was lowered and the adding of the Stiffer rear sway-bar. Got good gas mileage until it had the Lower Intake Manifold gasket leak (Only major issue with he car the whole time I owned it) Wheel bearings were a 2nd issue but nothing like the LIM gasket issue.

Pros

overall performance

Cons

Alero Absolute. Loving. Excellent. Reliable. Oldsmobile — Performance - It has a 2.4L I4 that has good acceleration, its light weight, so its easy to brake, handling isnt so great when you stomp on it, because of front wheel drive, but its fine otherwise. I like it because it is a great car for a commuter, also for sport. Build Quality - not bad, its got a few dings and scratches, Im going to put in a new re-ring kit in it, new cylinder heads, new plugs, points, wires, injectors, and pretty much everything else to rebuild it. Appearance - great style, i like it, I just put in a kenwood excelon deck. the bad thing is i got a bad driver door window regulator, but i can live with it for a while. Cost of Ownership - I get anywhere from 24 to 34 miles per gallon with it, and maintenance is fairly cheap.

Pros

decent milage

Cons

transmission

25

Just Under Average — Transmission out at 50k miles, the driver front and rear window regulators out at about the same, clear coat pealing on the front passenger fender,on the plus it does get decent millage, the rear seats fold down to let more noise out of the trunk, and the hot/cold air actuator is bound to go out on hot in the summer.

Great Overall Car. — great starter car. unique an stylish design. needs some repairs for better performance. very good safety due to the big engine and trunk space. very spacious. not the best accelaration but could beb ecause the air filter needs to be changed. overall, an awesome car.
