Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Oldsmobile Alero Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 162010

Alero 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200,000 miles


The 2000 Alero ran well ,I thought what a great deal i had found!!! I took it in for Maryland safety inspection where they go everything that you don't need to drive the car ,after brakes rotors ,windows are breaking faster than you can fix them. I have had it in 4 shops ,same story everytime ,you can spend 11- 15 on heads and wait till the bottom end blows out ,or hope it don't. Even though I have nothing foreign in the oil The current engine in the car i'm sure is over 100000. the other options is run away take 2000 loss in a few months or spend 2000 on a junk motor or rebuilt somewhere between 4-5K ,it's a nice car but only for looks!!! it will not be reliable and it's next to impossible to fix this aluminum engine ( which is why it was designed this way) Buy a foreign car ,you'll go places besides the mechanic
