2000 Oldsmobile Alero GL4 2.4 Liter from North America
Slick car, multiple problems!!
The mechanical track for the driver side window broke. $359.00 to fix. Still not fixed! Lack of funds.
Tried to start the car one day and all of the lists came on, but the door open buzzer sounded funny. The car would start for a few seconds and die. Change the fuel filter and that did not work. Had it towed to the dealer ship and they said it was a dead battery. Really strange signs for a dead battery.
Service Engine Soon light came on. Took it to Auto-zone to have the code read. Running lean and multiply misfires. The gentlemen told me to replace the spark plugs and if that did not work to check the fuel sensor. We replaced the spark plugs and that did not fix it. Took it back to the dealer ship and they said that two of the fuel injectors were bad and the other two were clogged. $500.00
I own two other fuel infected vehicles and neither have had any problems.
Trac off light keeps coming on for no reason.
Nice looking car.
Seems to have a lot of trouble for being 3 years old and only 32000 miles. There seems to be big problems and Olds should make it right.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a 2000 Alero and I have had the same problems. The driver side window regulator broke, the service engine light came on and it spent 2 months in the shop I have put new spark plugs, fuel filter, fuel pump module, gas cap etc... and the light is still on. It runs now, but my gas mileage is not good at all. My low trac light comes on and sometimes won't shut off. the day I bought the car it was winter time and I turned on the rear defroster and it overheated and blew out my back glass. I really do like my Alero and I wish Oldsmobile would do something to fix these problems to.
