2001 Oldsmobile Alero GL 2.4 litre from North America
I love this car, and it will break my heart when I eventually have to get rid of it
At around 5,000 kilometres started experiencing a problem with stalling after the car had been sitting overnight. After some serious complaining (this was a problem with my previous Pontiac) they finally did something that fixed the problem.
Around 70,000 the turn indicators would stop working intermittently. This was covered under a voluntary recall.
Absolutely no other problems to report.
Aside from the initial problems with the car, which were admittedly very dangerous, had been fixed, this car has handled like a dream.
I have experienced no problems with the exterior, no problems with it mechanically, the interior is spacious, and the upholstery is holding up extremely well - even with 2 large dogs riding in the back.
I actually put this car in the ditch doing a set of 360 turns in winter of 2002, and when they pulled it out of the ditch, she started right up as though nothing had happened, and there have been no ill effects since.
I will be keeping this car for a long time to come.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
