1999 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 2.4 V6 from North America
The first 50,000 km I owned it, not a single thing went wrong, suddenly out for a drive and the ABS light goes on and upon applying the brakes it it apparant that the ABS no longer works, few days later I start to hear squeeking from the rear and it turns out all 4 struts need replacing, shortly after that the battery light and airbag lights go on, turns out the air bag sensors and alternator need replacing.
Other developing problems.
-cheap seat construction, falling apart and very uncomfortable.
_constant brake noise.
At 70000 the front wheel bearing need replacing.
-mouldings keep falling off.
Too many problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Own a 2001 Alero and have had problems with the ABS and trac light warning indicator going on and off for no reason. I have had a total of 3 Hub kits for the right front replaced and 2 Hub kits for the left replaced. Tell me this isn't a bad design problem with this car. I have had my car in for service starting November 2001 every 3 to 4 months thereafter. After several attempts to fix the problem the service appointments went to every 10 months. I am now getting ready to take it in again. It has now been the longest I have gone with no problem. It has now been 1 year. Here we go again with fighting with the dealer to fix at no charge. My last appointment an Oldsmobile rep was contacted by me and the service was free of charge.
