If Baddabing were still around, we'd be hearing an earful right now. The Alero was much nicer than the Grand Am of the same vintage. Too bad we never got to see what a second generation Alero on Epsilon would be like. (Or maybe we just need to look at the G6 and squint.)

I really liked the Alero too. <shameless plug>I have an '02 GLS that I'm selling. </shameless plug> Mainly because I don't fit well in it. I've said many times I'd put the car up agains any accord or crapy...er camry. I thought it a stylish car without being too racy. And incredibly solid too, very well made. Nice car, sad to see it go. :( Mike Since I mentioned selling, is there somewhere on here where we can post For Sale stuff?

I loved my alero for the 18 months or so ive owned it, its a loaded 01 GLS that got for 9 grand after a 1 gradn crap trade. It had 20k miles on it then and ran great now it has 60k miles on it with nothing but oil changes a few sets of breaks despite the fact that I abuse the hell out of it. Brisk acceleration good handling and breaking are all pluses plus its a great looking car. Im looking to get rid of it now though as the suspension needs an overhaul if im going to hold ontoo this car because of city driving and I kinda want to move up since I have a good job, even while im in school i have a good job. Im probably going to lease a new 2007 CTS so that way I dont have to worry about the suspension getting screwed in the city. After college Ill buy again.

Yeah, I always liked the Olds Alero, too. For whatever reason, though, I always liked the sedan version better than the coupe...not sure why....

The Alero was one of the few sedans that looked good in it's own right. To me it is equally appealing to a coupe.

I can't really say that I have anything bad to say about the car. It's a little small (why I'm selling) but I knew that before buying. The build quality is quite tight, narrow gaps, nothing rattling, etc. Mechanically, no problems what else is there to say? It would figure that just when GM get's a car right they discontinue it. See also the 91-96 B-Body for examples of this.

Nice car. Don't put too many miles on it, it might be worth something one day.

We loved our Alero GL2. It handled MUCH better than expected. The sport suspension package makes the car a blast to drive.

Anyone remember the G6 Concept based Alero chop back in the Snitz boards?

Yeah... the Alero is a nice car. I wish my mom would have gotten it instead of the Sunfire.

Don't waste your time - There are already people out there TRYING to sell them for a profit with like 100 miles...

Much better to enjoy the car :ohyeah: cruising down the road :thumbsup:

I like the interior design of that car, looks better than the newer Malibu and G6, the only thing I don't liek it that stupid looking steering wheel.
