Still Kickin

I bought my 2002 Alero in 2003 with about 27,000 miles on it, and got a great deal as it was a rental return. I have about 162,000 miles on it now, and it still runs great. The fuel pump went out at about about 158,000, but that's no biggie. It gets around great in the Minnesota winters, and is comfortable for long trips. I drove to Denver from Minneapolis without having to stop much except for food and fuel. I have loved this car, and hope to drive it for at least another 50,000.

VERY RELIABLE

by from Las Vegas, NV on October 2, 2006

Great car, low price. Same standard features as some of the more expensive brands such as Camry. Purchase the vehicle used. It has 25k miles. I have owned it for two years, no problems; had to replace...
Great car, low price. Same standard features as some of the more expensive brands such as Camry. Purchase the vehicle used. It has 25k miles. I have owned it for two years, no problems; had to replace the battery once. I don't do much driving. I have only put 2k miles on the vehicle since I have owned it. But it gets great gas mileage and it's a smooth ride. I really can't complain. It was a bargain.

Dependable car

I bought my 02 Olds 2 1/2 yrs. ago with 93,000. I had to give it up due to the engine dying w/ 114,000 on the highway. So sad, I wish GM kept Olds and Pontiac. Since these cars are quickly phasing out...
I bought my 02 Olds 2 1/2 yrs. ago with 93,000. I had to give it up due to the engine dying w/ 114,000 on the highway. So sad, I wish GM kept Olds and Pontiac. Since these cars are quickly phasing out, I couldn't find a used engine with less then what I had on mine. Great first car for a new driver, wish I still had mine.

The vehicle its self is very comfortable and reliable I enjoy driving it and it is excellent on gas! The only problem i have had is with the signal lights but that might be just my car.
