I bought this car in February 2009 with 77k. I purchased it at a very affordable price of $6995. I owned this car until August 2014 when I decided to trade it in for a newer vehicle. I never had any major problems with this car. I only replaced the brakes once and had to have the fuel pump replaced once out of the 5.5 years that I owned. It was one of the most dependable cars I have ever owned. I wish they still made them. It was a great car. I would highly recommend it. Take care of it, and it will take care of you.

If you take care of it, it lasts forever.

by from kennesaw ga on July 30, 2017

This car got me through 10 years in my teens and twenties, the normal things that failed due to wear and tear had to be replaced, but as long as you take care of it, it will last.

My 04 Alero is comfortable, roomy, reliable, the V-6 has plenty of power, and the car is almost maintenance free. I get about 26mpg driving around and up to 35mpg in the highway. I now have 175,000 miles on it and its still running great. I have had no major problems with it. I would buy another new one tomorrow if I could.

One of the best cars I've ever owned!

I have had an Oldsmobile Alero for 9 years and have never had an issue with this vehicle. It's not only reliable but fun to drive as well. I got this car when I was in college and if I wasn't moving up north where all wheel drive is a must, I would keep this car until it died! I've gone on countless road trips and never realized how comfortable it was until I took a long trip in another vehicle. That said, it's a no frills car- you don't get a lot of the bells and whistles you might in others but that said the sound system is great and for being only a 2 door car the trunk is HUGE and holds far more than expected (especially since you can fold down the rear seats!). It also has a V6 engine that has great zip AND is more fuel efficient at almost 10 years old then some newer cars today! I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a safe, reliable, comfortable and cute car.

This Alero was originally my moms car, and I learned to drive with this car. It had a 5 speed transmission, which was really easy to learn. Everything about the car was perfect, from the way it drove, the power that came from a 4 cyl. engine, and the styling was good to. Very comfortable for a long drive to as I have went to New York state in this car 4 times from Tennessee. Only thing I think I would have changed on the car would have been the sunroof on it. It could leak slightly when it would rain. Not sure if it was a defect on my behalf or if allot of them done this. Never done any work on this car other than the usual maintenance. I would love to find another one of these cars, cause about a 5 months ago I crashed, and totaled the car. Wasnt my fault, cause I got hit by a drunk driver the veered over in my lane to fast. But i miss it, I only got to enjoy it for a year and a half, but I have been told it is similar to a Pontiac Gran prix, so i might check in on that

This is my old car!! I drove this car for 3 years, never EVER had a problem!! I would recommend this car to anybody who wants a great dependable vehicle. I knew everytime I got into it that I would get to where I was goin without any issues. I showed this picture to my 4 year old daughter and she told me we should get it back. I was sad/excited the day that I traded this car. I traded for a 2005 Chevy Impala. I dont regret the trade but I took really good car of the alero, and was attached to it. If you are wanting a good gas mileage and dependable vehicle this one is the best choice for sure!!! Good luck to anyone who buys it and take car of her!! =)

I bought my Alero in 2005. Iv'e kept regular maintance up on it, out side of that have had no problems. The only issue I have had is the front I guess is called spoiler. The front end is low clearence bad when getting to close to parking dividers or some drive ways. If there is a dip in road front end hits easily. Drives good on freeway.
