The car has always had clunking noises in the front end and it has never been right since day one. Yeah about that clean carfax report? total BS there is not one side of the car that has never been smashed. Carfax doesn't mean anything at ALL!
I love my Alero, the way it looks, drives and how comfortable it is. I think it's a great value and has every option I would want on any vehicle. Though I would never buy one ever again. I actually don't think I would buy another GM vehicle ever again personally. Mechanically the Alero was poorly made in the quality and workmanship of its parts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
