1999 Oldsmobile Alero 3.4 V6 from North America
A total rip off from DAY ONE!
From day one, the Alero has had coolant problems. Coolant leak at the intake manifold, then I had to replace the coolant resevoir because it is made out of cheap plastic. Next, the coolant light constantly came on, the car ran hot always, and the low tire pressure light will not go off! The dashboard looks "bubbly" or "wavy", and so do the doors. This past week, had more coolant issues, and the engine finally blew up. PIECE OF CRAP--NEVER BUY AN ALERO!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Your unfortunate experience with this car is one of the reasons that Olds is going under.

You said the engine was running hot. Maybe if you would have been smart enough to have the overheating problem looked at, you wouldn't have destroyed your motor.

I have an 2001 Alero and its the car not the owner. I had my overheating problem looked at over and over and over and they tried EVERYTHING!!! I have heard nothing, but negative about the Aleros colling system. DO NOT BUY OLDS cars no matter how low the mileage. SOmething will go wrong with the car.
