1999 Oldsmobile Alero from North America
Great car if you don't have kids, bad car if you don't have the patience to fix tedious problems
My passenger window fell down in the middle of winter. The regulator, which is a small plastic piece that holds the window, snapped in half. Luckily knew someone at Speedy Glass and got it fixed for $160; normally would have cost me 300. Next week the driver's side one went.
You can feel the transmission tugging when going into ND gear.
Rear defrost doesn't work, and A/C and heat don't work.
ABS and traction light go on constantly.
When it rains really bad, I find even at full speed it doesn't quite do the job with good wipers.
It looks nice, and is generally affordable to fix.
It has the need for speed.
Backseat is very small, as well as the trunk.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
