This car is a great everyday car. The quality is wonderful. I like the fact that it looks sporty with the two door design and the addition of the spoiler on the back. The only thing that I really dislike is the amount of space in the back seat. The trunk actually has a lot of space for it to be a smaller vehicle.
Story
I used this car to advertise for a jewelry launch party for my small business.
Pros
My favorite things about this vehicle are the size, overall design, price, and gas mileage. The interior resembles what you would find in a much more luxurious vehicle. With gas at the current price, $25.00 Fills up the tank. I like the fact that the car has a sunroof. Another pro is the power doors, windows, and seats. With me being on the shorter side, I appreciate that I am able to adjust the seats to drive comfortably. Also the wheel adjusts which is very helpful when it comes to seeing over the wheel.
Cons
One negative aspect of this vehicle is the lack of space in the back seat. There is not a lot of foot space for passengers who are riding in the back of the car. Also the cup holder, in my opinion, is in a very awkward position.

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.
Story
The Alero is a small coupe which definitely doesn't belong off road. I had to pick up a friend who lived down a dirt road. It was bumpy but the car handled it like a champ.
Pros
I love the fact that the car only has slightly over 100,000 miles. That's my favorite part, I think. The motor still has lots of life left in it, as does the transmission, which is still kicking along quite strongly. The interior of the Alero is also near mint condition. Another great feature that I love is that it doesn't leak any fluids. And maintenance is also a fairly easy and reasonably cheap task as well. I love lots of different parts of my Alero. It's hard to only list a few.
Cons
The biggest negative things on my Alero is the rust spots. The fact that the car is a 2000 and almost 17 years old, it's no shock that some rust has started to develop. The main locations of the rust are on the rocker panels, the fenders, the wheel wells, the undercarriage, the door panels, and the k-frame. I've already sandblasted and patched the rust on the rocker panels, door panels, and fenders. The only tedious parts left is the entire undercarriage. Hopefully it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to get it all taken care of.
