I would love to run this car off a bridge, or perhaps plow it into a wall. It has been nothing but a nightmare since I bought it. I'm currently driving around with a trash bag over my drivers side window because the window is stuck down. Needless to say, I look completely trashy driving around looking like a bum and can't even see out the drivers side window.
On top of that, I just had my manifold repaired - that was an adventure. Luckily I have family that does work on cars. Unfortunately they didn't know it was this much work cut out for them when it came to the Alero, otherwise I would have been told not to buy it. They should change the name to Error-O instead because this car is a piece of "fill in the rest".
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
