The Alero 2000, the 6 cylinder, is very good, but has problems.
It needs to be treated for rust under the car every year, or else the car will have serious problems. The bottom doors inside need treatment also.
Another problem I have now is the trunk is closed, but seems to have become loose between the lock and trunk.
Beside this, for any lights that appear in dash, all can be closed down from the switch panel, but you need to check first if the lights have a reason to come on, if not then anyone can shut them off.
It seems that before winter and the start of summer, when you check the brakes and tires, and tune it up, those check lights seem to appear, and if an oil change has been done and the brakes done and everything is in order, then some check lights can be disabled. For check engine, it needs to be verified by a computer in a garage, to make sure no serious problems can be identified. If there is nothing, the garage can then cancel the check engine light that can appear sometimes, just because you use different gas or have not closed the gas cap properly, or any other reasons. Most likely the chip for oil pressure or detector for pollution can be a problem, and may even cause the car to malfunction, giving an error if the chip is no good. This will give you problems.
The Alero 2000 6 cylinder is a good sports car, but needs to always have owners that verify if everything works correctly, and learn about the car. The more you know, the better you will be.
The Volvo 760 I used to have is great, but expensive in parts and not economic on gas.
I still think the Alero 2000 could have pushed the model to a twin cam V6, and made it even more sporty, it does have the shape of a good racing car, but sadly the company never wanted to put a better motor in, and now Oldsmobile is closed down and will never build a car again.
Electric cars may not pollute, but are not powerful enough to replace BMW, Ferrari, Porsche etc... this why most hybrid or electric car are not as popular as they should be, they are cheap on gas, but have no power, so any sporty driver will not go for this.
Worse, where there are winters, you don't want a car that has no power. The roads in Quebec are so bad that everyone here should drive 4x4 trucks. It is summer now, and all there is bumps and holes, and believe me a winter here can destroy a lot of vehicles. A car company should test all their vehicles here, if they can last winters they will last for a long time. The rust and broken parts can be verified after winters, and help to build better cars.
