2003 Oldsmobile Alero GL V6 from North America
I love it!!!
When I was out for a test drive with the sales guy I mentionted that I heard a noise coming from the front brake. He told me he would take a look at it. After purchasing the car I heard the noise again and took the car back. He said the brakes needed to be adjusted. There was also an issue with rust under the doors and under the lip of the hood. When I had first looked at the car I had asked him if it had been from down East where they use lots of salt on their roads. He told me he had no idea. After taking it for an oil change and my walking under the car, my heart fell as I could see the rust on the under site. Yes this car was from down east.
The brake seized up on me in early Oct 2007, and I had to tow it to the dealer. The car had over heated so the dealer thought it was best to also replace the thermostat... but did not get my authorization to do any work. So when I was called to pick up the car I had thought it was all covered by the warranty. I was in shock when I had to pay 750.00 to get the car.
I have since spoke to the General Manager and he has refunded me 350.00 and is going to be repairing the doors and under the hood. As I told him I was not happy with the service and the lies that were told to me by the salesman. The GM is trying to make it right. We will see...
I love my car, it is Victory red and loaded... although I have had issues, I love my car!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

It sound like you got ripped off at the car lot, and not by GM itself.
First, the car lot is able to look and see where the car came from when you asked. Second, they should have fixed the brakes when you noticed there was a problem when test driving it... sounds like a horrible dealership to me, sorry to hear about it...
