2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS 2.4L 4 cylinder from North America
Sports car, with the price and affordability of an economy car
Passenger window guide track broken had to be replaced 3000 km 300 Canadian.
Passenger seat back broken had to be replaced this was about 700 Canadian.
Defective stereo replaced.
Fog lamps replaced 10-15 times in the life of the car.
Car would not idle properly the dealer charged me 300 to replace the spark plugs their excuse was the diagnostic machine took 3 hours to complete.
Driver window guide track broken had to be replaced 10,000 km.
Fuel consumption goes out the window after 120,000 km not one Car Company can tell me what to fix.
Heater blower stopped working replacement was the only option this was 600 Canadian.
Fuel pump blew at 125,000 km.
There has been a grinding noise ever since 60,000 but the car company says nothing is wrong.
Seats are wearing very badly.
This car is quick, responsive, handles corners beautifully. Its great in slippery conditions.
It's a very fun and stylish car.
Insurance is to high for a 2.4 liter engine.
The over all costs are manageable if you can afford $1000 repair bill at random times, but not all the time.
I do wish there were more aftermarket parts to accent my car better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
