The Greatest Clunker
My Oldsmobile Alero is the greatest clunker I've ever seen. I love the fact that it just recently broke 100,000 miles, even though it's nearly 17 years old. The motor has barely been broken in! The transmission also seems to be in good quality, which is another great feature to me. I dislike that the age of the car has enabled it to start to rust out. It has been a nightmare for me in trying to keep up with fixing all the rust spots on the body and frame. All in all it drives well and handles well. Just hopefully the rust doesn't kill it before the mechanics in it are ready to go.

Functional but with some problems
I purchased a used 2000 Oldsmobile alero in 2008. At the time it had about 80,000 miles on it and was working really well. It was a two wheel drive vehicle, which, where I live, isn't ideal but it worked. What it lacked in drivetrain it made up for with the V6 engine in it and how light the vehicle was. It had a lot of giddy-up if you really wanted to get it moving. For the most part it was a very enjoyable car to drive and I had a lot of great moments with the vehicle. I ended up driving that car until it had 153,000 miles on it. At that point I purchased my current vehicle. Now, while I enjoyed driving the vehicle it ended up having quite a few problems over the years that I had it. Especially the last year it seemed like I was paying about $250 per month just to keep everything running good enough to get by.
Just Keep Driving
This car would never be anyone's first choice. It's wide, the seats aren't that comfortable, and it can be a little loud sometimes. However, this car will keep on moving no matter what you put it through. This car has taken all the dings and dents you can throw at it. This is a car that will get you from point A to point B, but put up a bit of a fight doing so. The car is loud and often will trigger lights on the dashboard, but if you just keep driving they usually go away. This may be worrisome to you readers, but my mechanic hasn't found anything wrong with her yet.
