Lots of power and fun to drive
Water pump, wheel bearings.
Upgraded the tires.
Otherwise just regular maintenance.
The car had 90,000 km when I bought it from the original owner. The body looked like it had been abused, but otherwise ran OK. I had a body technician do some exterior repairs to bring it back to the original appearance.
I've had the car 4 years now, and I've driven an extra 57,000 km with very few problems. It's a very sharp looking car, with all the options except heated seats. It's a pleasure to drive, with plenty of power for a six cylinder motor.
It's the GLS model, so I have the moonroof open in the summer, and I'm very impressed with the low air noise.
The radio is top quality, and it's just a fun car to drive.
It's too bad Oldsmobile finally got it right and they stopped making the Alero.
I plan on keeping this car for a long time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
