I HAVE HAD AN 99′ OLDSMOBILE ALERO FOR 7 YEARS. IT HAS HAD ALMOST EVERY PROBLEM LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE. IT HAS HAD AN OVER HEATING PROBLEM EVERY YEAR SINCE I GOT IT AND I HAVE SPENT THOUSANDS IN REPAIRS FOR THE COOLING SYSTEM, FUEL PUMP, POOR INTERIOR MANUFACTURER, AC/HEATER BLOWER MOTOR SETTINGS FAILURE, FUEL GAUGE FAILURE, TRANSMISSION LEAKAGE, POOR SPRINGS/STRUTS, GEAR SLIPPING, HARD STARTING, WATER LEAKING IN FROM RAIN UNDER GLOVE COMPARTMENT, OFF ALIGNMENT (SET THREE TIMES IN YEAR), POOR GAS MILEAGE, OVERHEATING OR RUNNING ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURE AND SUDDEN OVERHEATING WITHOUT NOTICE OF GAUGE LIGHTS OR SOUNDS.

HAS HAD FRONT RIGHT CALIPER FAILURE LOCKING BRAKE PADS DOWN AGAINST ROTOR CAUSING BURNOUT OF PADS,ROTOR WARPING, CALIPER CYLINDER DAMAGE. HAS HAD POWER STEERING PUMP LEAKAGE. THIS CAR IS A LEMON AND GM SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO GET AWAY WITH SELLING UNSAFE, WORTHLESS VEHICLES.

THE ONLY REASON I STILL HAVE MINE RUNNING IS BECAUSE I HAVE PUT A LOT OF PERSONAL AS WELL AS PAID LABOR INTO ITS UPKEEP OVER THE YEARS DUE TO THAT I CANT AFFORD ANOTHER CAR.

DT*: THE CONTACT STATED WHILE DRIVING AT VARIOUS SPEEDS THE ABS AND LOW TRACK LIGHTS ON THE DASH BOARD ILLUMINATED. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER ON TWO OCCASIONS WHERE THE SENSORS IN THE FRONT HUBS WERE REPLACED. AFTER THE REPAIRS, THE PROBLEM PERSISTED.

DRIVER’S SIDE WINDOW MOTOR HAS BEEN REPLACED THREE TIMES IN THE LAST 4 YEARS. REAR DRIVER’S SIDE WINDOW MOTOR HAS ALSO BEEN REPLACED IN THE LAST YEAR. AMAZING HOW THIS KEEPS HAPPENING OVER AND OVER AGAIN. ALSO, MY HORN HAS GONE OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT SEVERAL TIMES WITHOUT ANYTHING SETTING IT OFF.

THERE IS NO WAY TO TURN IT OFF ONCE IT GOES. EACH TIME IT WAS 3 OR 4 IN THE MORNING AND EACH TIME I HAD TO DRIVE TO A REMOTE LOCATION JUST TO DISCONNECT THE HORN. OF COURSE, THE FIRST COUPLE OF TIMES I HAD NO IDEA HOW TO DO THIS BUT AFTER A WHILE YOU GET TO KNOW THESE THINGS. I HAVE HAD THE HORN REPLACED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WITHOUT ANY SUCCESS.

NOW I AM BEING TOLD THAT IT IS THE HORN PADS LOCATED IN THE STEERING WHEEL. OF COURSE, THAT IS ANOTHER $800 – $1000 JOB ON TOP OF THE 4 WINDOWS THAT COST ABOUT $400 EACH AND THE HORNS WITH RAN ME ABOUT $150 TO $200 EACH.

WHILE DRIVING MY 1999 OLDSMOBILE ALERO 2.4L, MY TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT CAME ON. IT DID NOT GIVE THE NORMAL WARNING INDICATOR TO LET ME KNOW THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG. I STOPPED AT A STOP SIGN. WITH THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC IT REQUIRES YOU TO QUICKLY ENTER THE INTERSECTION.

MY CAR STALLED IN THE MIDDLE OF TAKE OF AS IF IT WAS NOT GETTING GAS. THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC WHICH IS TRAVELING AT A GREAT RATE OF SPEED HAD TO SLAM ON BREAKS TO PREVENT FROM HITTING MY STALLED CAR. SEVERAL CARS CAME TO A SCREECHING HALT AND NEARLY WRECKED. I LEARNED THAT THE CAUSE OF THE CAR STALLING WAS MY THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR WAS FAULTY. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE THE TPS.

THE FIRST WAS DONE APPROXIMATELY 2 YEARS AGO THE HENDRICK DEALERSHIP IN APEX NORTH CAROLINA. I EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE TRACTION CONTROL LIGHT COMING AND THE TRANSMISSION SHIFT IRREGULAR AND THE CAR STALLING.
