1999 Oldsmobile Alero 4 cylinder from North America
Fast, sleek, uncomfortable, and a brake system nightmare
Front rotors replaced at 26000 under warranty.
Front rotors replaced again at 58000.
Rear brakes replaced at 60000. Big bucks.
Switch on passenger door for automatic window does not function unless the driver wiggles the window lock/unlock button from the drivers door.
Struts needs replaced at 58000.
Brake booster pump bad at 58000.
The car is quick, and handles well.
However, compared to my company car (a Ford Taurus), the drivers seat is NOT very comfortable. I cannot drive long distances in this car without back pain. My Taurus just feels great, and I can drive 1000 mile in a day and be free of back pain.
I would not purchase this car again, cannot with until it is paid for so I can sell it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
