1999 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 3.4 V6 from North America
Great value for a car
The GM Passlock (security) system is flukie (wish it could be pulled out) causes the car not to start for 10 minutes sometimes. This is the only reason I didn't give it a 10 on reliability.
The head gasket started leaking slowly and was replaced soon after I picked it up.
The doors have a water leak in them. sometimes when it rains water will end up on the back seat floor, I haven't confirmed where the leak is coming from yet.
The window molding needs to be replaced, makes the window hard to roll up.
I've loved it - has been a great runner and I've had to do very little work on it.
Performance and luxury mix - comfort, lot of options, handling, nice acceleration, wide tires for grip, and 4wheel disk brakes help.
Very sporty looking.
The running lights are always on - good safety, but would be nice to have an option to turn them off too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
