Pros

Cheap to keep on the road, haven't had too many problems with it. Good mpg, not a bad stock stereo.  Easy to drive anywhere except in deep snow or off road.

Cons

Have been told it looks like a grandpa car. Not the fastest car.

A Good First Car — I got my Alero from my dad when he got a new car. I have driven it for 5 years now and I have only had to put in a new alternator in it and it has over 200,000 miles. It doesn't have much power under the hood but the fuel economy is pretty good, average about 25mpg.

Pros

It would make a good starter car , for a first car for someone

Cons

the spoiler gets in the way of the back window because the back end sits up to high

01 Alero — not a bad little car , but not as good as my second car , its got some flaws but most cars do , maybe its just my preference on cars or maybe its actually not justt me but , the motor is strong only trouble with that is that its a v6 and take a good chunk of change for gas

Cons

poor quality loud cheap but is practical

Practical Coupe With Not Much Power — basic car with a 2.4 L four cylinder engine. rattles a lot kind of a money pit pooooooooor quality and descent styling. gas mileage is fine but could be better due to lack of power. there is really nothing fun about an over priced gm coupe..

Loving The Look & The Speed — All around good car; fairly fast acceleration, not many squeaks or rattles, not many repairs needed either! love the look, ok gas mileage but could be better. pretty fun to drive, but probably nothing compared to something a little sportier.

I Would Love Another One!! — LOVED this car, hated to see it go. It was fully loaded (except sunroof). Great handling, but needed some expensive upkeep. Fuel pump alone was $500. Gas mileage was GREAT. Had great sound system in it. Loved everything about it but the repair bills.

Pros

strong accelration and good for hauling around my hommies.

Cons

Bad build quality, bad brakes, and a touchy transmission.

Good Car For The Money But Don't Expect Anything More. — Great acceleration for what it is. Ran a 15.7 at the track (quarter mile) Not the best in build quality thats for sure. Looks k though. Great car for the money, around 25 mpg average. Fun to drive and fun to harass V-6 Mustangs and eclipse.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero — Overall this is a great family car, never let's you down. Decent cargo room, ample space for the rear seat passenger. If maintained regularly, it runs like a charm. For me it is just not much fun to drive because it has an automatic transmission, I prefer a manual.

Pros

Don't buy a General Motors Vehicle!!

Cons

GM Makes it!!

25

Piece Of Crap!! — Very poorly made. It chews threw wheel bearing like you would not believe and there very expensive to replace. All kinds of little stupid things break on them. Like cruize control buttons, heater buttons, and fan relay switches. This was a know prob with these cars as well as the Grand Am's. Lousy car don't buy one.
