2004 Oldsmobile Alero from North America
I feel almost everyday like letting it roll off a cliff!
The dashboard is peeling and wrinkled.
The windows take forever to roll up and sound like nails on a chalk board.
Transmission only a year old, and is slipping and bucking. Or at least that's what they say it is.
My Alero is about a year old and is driven on a daily basis, so it is not like it sits in the sun for days at a time. The dashboard looks like someone had left a wet towel on it and let it sit in the sun for weeks.
Also, it seems as though the transmission is slipping more and more. On I-75, it starts to shake, then idles high and drops very low, then starts to buck. It feels like I am slamming on the brake for a split second.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I also have a 2000 Alero and the dashboard is peeling, it looks so ridiculous. I don't even want to bother trying to waste my time fixing it. My sunroof creeks and moans on turns now also, I'm just waiting for it to spring a leak in heavy rain!

I think its sad that people get a car with nearly 30,000 miles and hate the car company that made it because it gives them a few problems when God only knows how it was treated before they came to own it. I had a 2002 Alero and the dash started to peel shortly before it was traded in 2006. It was a wonderful car aside from that... We only had to put brakes on twice in almost 80000 miles, first time covered by warranty, and one air filter. The new car, a Grand Am (basically the same thing) 's dash began to peel at 33,000 miles and was replaced under warranty. Aleros aren't that bad, treat them good and they'll treat you good!
