    8/10 — i like that its a comfortable ride. looks awesome. but the window mechanisms are crap. and ive gone through 2 engines in 8 months :) the bumpers are painted crappily, but ive raced quite a few cars in this when it was stock and it kept up if it didnt win

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

    Pros: handling

    2003 Alero.. An Ok Buy. — It has a nice look for it's class of car (compared to sunflowers and cavaliers), it has a curvy/slick body and a decent interior for a 2003. There is quite a bit of room in the back for a 2-door... Handling is great, braking is great, acceleration sucks... but thats just the deal when you buy this kind of car. It's not bad on gas, depending on how you drive it. Thanks to the handling and its cute look, the car is fun to drive... but I would like more acceleration/speed. Just gonna have to spend the money for it with a new car later one!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The exterior is nice and it's easy to drive.

    Cons: Acceleration

    Good, Cheap Fun. — For the price, totally destroys anything in a similar price range such as a neon, sunfire, cavalier, etc The ride is fairly decent, and paired up with the standard 5 speed transmission it has great acceleration as well. Only repair needed was a wheel bearing and for a 6 year old car that's pretty good. the exterior is pretty sharp on the coupe, minus the enormous rear lights. Interior on the GX is fairly basic. It gets good gas millage if driven economically and maintenance is cheap. It is very fun to drive, and handles great with very little body roll. throttle is very responsive.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun to drive and cheap

    Cons: Doesnt have a V8.

    Olds Alero — brakes need a good fixin...when you step on the break the car kinda jurks to a stop. It's got alot of "get up and go" in her....she accelerates pretty quick. She ain't a bad car to drive for a first car when ur 17-18.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: accelerates good

    Cons: brakes suck
