    2002 Oldsmobile Aurora - Base

    Pros: The lavish interior

    Cons: Would prefer more precise on-center steering feel

    Advice: You will find bargain prices for a car that will treat you so well

    Wow...the best car I have ever purchased! I have owned the car for 22 months, and have had only two minor repair issues that were resolved quickly: small crack in console wood trim was replaced; noise in steering fixed with lubrication per service bulletin. While I basically put city miles on the car, I am averaging 22 mpg...totally unexpected! The interior is beautiful,while the exterior design is eye-catching. Anyone who has ridden with me in this gem cannot believe this is a domestic automobile. While I had briefly considered the Acura TL, the reports I had heard and read concerning its problem transmission made my choice perfectly clear. I will have no problem enjoying this car for three more years!

    2002 Oldsmobile Aurora - Base

    Pros: Comfort & cockpit layout

    Cons: Really not a thing

    Advice: Plan to keep it as it will probably continue to depreciate more than some cars.

    Tested both an Infiniti and Acura and the Aurora doesn't take a back seat in any category. Aurora comes with many neat standard features not even available on many other luxury mid-sizes. The 3.5L, although not a killer motor, is more than sufficient for most drivers and the fuel economy is quite good. With Oldsmobile being discontinued and the depreciation fairly high on used Auroras, the opportunity exists to get some super prices on a car worth much more than being sold for.

    2003 Oldsmobile Alero - GL1 Sedan

    Pros: Radio

    Cons: Transmission

    Advice: I only have 750 miles on the vehicle, it seemed like a nice car, but it failed on me........

    I purchased a 2003 Alero GL1 with a 4 cylinder engine. It seemed like a good car for the first 750 miles. One day I got onto the expressway going 65mph, then the rpms jump up to about 5500 and my speed was slowing down, like I was in neutral.... When it slowed down to 40mph I manuelly shifted it down into 3rd gear and I was able to make it to the next exit going about 45mph at 5500rpms. After I stopped I took off in Drive, but it would not shift out of 1st gear, so I had to manuelly shift to 2nd,and 3rd. Then I stopped again and when I took off in Drive it began working normal again... I drove straight to the dealer and they are suppose to look at it today and let me know what is wrong with it....?? That is not good if the transmission is shot after 750 miles on a vehicle, they said maybe it might be a computer problem, it still is not good. They did rent a Ford Escort for me to drive while I wait for them to figure the problem out.......????????

    2002 Oldsmobile Alero - GL2 Sedan

    Pros: 200 watt sound system

    Cons: poor performance V-6 Horrible Gas Mileage 260 per Tank

    Advice: DO NOT PURCHASE AN ALERO,DON'T DO IT!!

    I am on my second Alero, first one was returned the next day to dealer, due to a faulty weld on the R/R roof area. Dealer found another one with more equipment. I had to pay the difference. This car has been just a nightmare. One week after ownership it was at dealer for a week. The radio was scratched, trunk scratched- covered up with touch up paint to hide at time of delivery, did not notice the damage until second day in my garage. Sunvisor/headliner had dirt and grease on it. All four door panels replaced, all were peeling, new panels are also failing 4 months later. steering wheel shakes when braking-warped rotors at 5,000 miles. Mileage display went dim at 200 miles. Right windshield molding loose. Center console falling to pieces. There is also much more to mention, but don't want to run out of space...
