2000 Oldsmobile Alero 2.4 from Finland
Value for my hard earned money
Had to replace the hazard switch since the turn signals stopped working. Next step is brakes, but that's a common problem with automatic transmissions, at least here.
Love to ride with this one. It's a nice ride even with long distance trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

After my review, I had another problem with a cracking sound while turning full left. It was the flexplate, which was broken; a common issue with these models. The factory installed flexplate is too weak; replaced it with a Delco part, which is much better, since it's a bit thicker.
Also a water leak from the front side of the passenger side, which caused the car's computer to go down; also a common issue. Repaired it myself. Took out the computer, cleaned it and its connectors, and it worked until I sold it.
So, all in all, a nice car to drive, but some serious issues that everyone should know when buying this. I bought an older American car, which is much better choice than those sad efforts of American car making history, like the Alero is.
