    Golden Sparrow — Few minor things like the radio needs to be worked on and my window controls for other passengers, overall she is a decent car and my baby. I trust her to handle most anything I throw at her. From getting me to work on time, to off roading to speed.

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

    Pros: Reliability and handling, I know this car like the back of my hand and she'd surprise you with the amount of power she has for her model/make.

    Cons: Needing to replace the radio.

    Great — Windows not rolling down, the lights stay on due to fuses not working. Overall its a great car. I love my Alero and just want it to work. It is bad when you try to fix due to you having to remove just about everything to get to one small thing.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Not a lot of major problems yet.  Looks good and has got me to where I need to go for 12 years now!

    Cons: Windows don't roll down, several problems to fix.

    02 Olds Alero Gls — Love my car. Except a few minor electrical infidelities. Engine is nice, good smooth highway ride with only a little road rumble. Comfortable seats, good leg and trunk space. Pretty hard on gas, but thats just cause im usually thrashing every last bit of strength from the 8 year old v6.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Chrome rims, leather Interior, Sunroof

    Cons: Poor GM build quality

    No Luxury Here But A Good, Dependable, Economical Mode Of Transportation Made In America. — Fun, sporty little car that delivers great fuel mileage (40 mpg highway). It has been relatively dependable with most repairs being associated with normal wear and tear. It has over 150,000 km on it and I think that it is good for many, many more. Body construction is very solid but doors and window slides are on cheap side. Four banger combined with the five-speed manual is dependable but certainly no speed deamon. Steering and braking is good.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Solid, reliable, North-American car. GM probably had these cars close to right when they unfortunately decided to cease production.

    Cons: Back seating is awkward with two-door coupe. Built for average build occupants; not tall or oversize.

    It's... Poo Poo Lol — Acceleration is good. Braking is alright, Handling is a bit tricky Build quality is pretty dinky. Susceptible for bumps, dinks and blemishes. Appearance was fine until my sister smacked someone else in the ass with it. Beautiful otherwise. Cost of ownership is fairly good on the gas mileage side. It costs about $20-25 to fill it up, depending on gas prices. Maintenance is expensive sometimes. Fun to drive? When I can get it to work, yes.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The seats are  comfortable, the heater keeps the car warm.

    Cons: Security system is crap, had to have it disabled to be able to start the car. With it being an older...ish car, it has its quirks. It wasn't that good of a vehicle when I bought it off the lot, but it was a replacement for good old Explorer. Thats all that matters.

    02 Olds Alero — So far a very good car, powerful V6 sounds nice in higher rpms, very comfortable leather interior, parts are fairly inexpensive, stock stereo is nice, good sound. The handleing is superb, better than most cars ive driven, a few minor glitches with the electronics but nothing major for a 7 year old car

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: handling, interior comfort, acceleration, stereo, ease of use

    Cons: road noise, aleros notorious squeaky suspensions, minor electronic i.e trunk lid release (button only) false engine computer readings (minor)

    Decent Car For The Money — I was stuck in a hard spot when I bought this car. My other car was totaled. This car I am beginning to like. I had a lot of problems in the beginning, but I believe I've worked all the kinks out, and it's turned out to be a decent car. Pretty peppy for a 6 cylinder.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Pretty peppy car

    Cons: Has plastic gaskets that go to the intake and head's
