1999 Oldsmobile Alero gl3 3.4 from North America
Piece of JUNK I will NEVER buy another GM product again!
Had to replace #2 and #3 coils.
Had to replace all window trim.
Had to replace fuel filter.
Had to replace fuel pump.
Had to replace plugs and wires.
Had to replace positive battery cable and battery.
Leaks water into passenger side floor.
Had to replace window motor.
Had to have computer reprogrammed.
Had to have dome lamp assembly replaced-kept falling out.
Had to have seat belt retractor replaced-would not go back in.
Drivers mirror (outside) vibrates badly.
Lower intake gasket replaced twice because leaking oil.
Power mirror switch replaced.
Oil pump drive leaking oil- fixed.
Car is NOT reliable- sometimes will not start- GM/Olds dealer answer to that "huh, we just don't know- you got something funky going on there- but it has us stumped-good luck"
Drivers seat has small hole starting to wear through fabric.
All of the above has been within the 4 months that I have owned the car!
All I have to say is if you are thinking about buying one RUN THE OTHER WAY!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

How much did it cost to reprogram your computer for the car?

You really got ripped off there... havn't had any problems with my 2004 Alero at all, got it with 33k miles too. I have had problems with the passenger side electrical outlit slot, falling out when i try to open it, but otherwise it's all good.

I own a 2002 Olds Alero Ecotec 2.2l that will not start. I have replaced the ignition module and the crank sensor. I have good fuel pressure, but it still will not start. I have owned my vehicle for 2 months and have not had any other problems, until now, please help, no one seems to know what's wrong.
