2000 Oldsmobile Alero from North America
This car sucks for a female single person
I had only owned my Alegro less than 6 months when there was a recall on it and I had a problem of it squeaking from the rear end of it. My blinker lights wouldn't work either... they were erratic, sometimes working, sometimes not. Of course none of this was covered by my extended warranty.
After I had owned my car for 2 years I had problems with my brakes, I took it to a mechanic and needed total brake work done.. pads, rotors, hoses, etc. They also found that my coolant was going into my engine... extended warranty paid for that, but the car only had 50,000 miles on it.
Went to get out of car and the door wouldn't open on drivers side. The next morning it worked!
The car is easy to handle.
I like its looks and interior.
I wish I didn't have problems with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have the same issues with my blinker. Did you ever get that issue resolved?

My Alero is a real pain I've fixed every window at least once. The brakes are horrid I've replaced them twice the past year for excessive wear. But the reson I'm writing is to let you know there is a factory recall for the blinkers. I replace it on my own as my car wasn't covered yet and it's worked ever since I changed it a year ago. It's not hard to do and will cost about $20 I think it was, but don't quote me on that. Good luck.

I have a 2000 Alero and have had to have the wheel bearing replaced four times in the last year and a half. I just got it replaced again on 5-4-06 and the repair guy told me this was a problem that they are having with the Alero's. It has cost me $1200.00 in the last 1 1/2 years. Is it just me???

When my rear passenger bearings went, my ABS, low trac, and service engine soon lights all came on.
