2001 Oldsmobile Alero GLX 3.4 V6 from North America
Decent car, but I don't know if I would recommend it
The rotors had to be replaced at about 9000 miles.
Temperature switches on the dash had to be replaced at 2000 miles.
Sending unit in fuel tank had to be replaced at 11000 miles. The fuel gauge would read full and then it would just go to empty when it had a full tank of gas.
I think the wheel bearings are going out on the front passenger wheel. It makes a dragging noise. It's at 17000 miles now.
The cruise control stopped working about 1000 miles ago.
The car handles very nicely. I love the performance suspension. It corners better than a 2001 V6 Mustang I test drove. The looks of the car are nice. I have to agree with another person here who said the gas tank should have been made a bit bigger. You can't go very far on a tank of gas especially when it's the V6 model. I had my Honda for 11 years with very little maintenance and none until after 80,000 miles. It just seems like it will nickel and dime me to death after the car is no longer under warranty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
