Better than expected
The car has been very faithful with few problems over the 60,000 km since ownership.
Replaced the front rotors because they were starting to make a noise.
I changed transmission fluids and radiator coolant just for my own piece of mind.
The motor oil is changed every 5,000 km; otherwise the car runs like it's supposed to.
I'm happy with the appearance of the Olds Alero; it's a dark blue with sunroof, and the back spoiler looks very sporty. It has bucket seats with an automatic floor shift, and the transmission shifts smoothly.
Even though I have read good reports about Honda and Toyota, I am young 66 years old and will make this great car my last. It has plenty of power, the seats are comfortable, and the gas mileage isn't too bad.
Oh, I forgot to mention that the radio is second to none.
It's nice to have an Oldsmobile Alero; a very reliable car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
