Car shut down suddenly while driving on interstate at 65 mph. A few times this happened in left lane and could have resulted in serious injury. Mechanic replaced sensors (cam) after diagnostic test but car failed again after a few days. Diagnostic pointed to another sensor but the car failed again after a few days. Mechanic suggests replacing ignition switch.

2001 Alero gl had problems with the computer, cruise control, and the floor was leaking.** answer required***. the vehicle consumed excessive amounts of gas, the vehicle only got 208 mile per tank of gas. The rear defroster works intermittently. The ABS light, traction light and service engine light illuminated at the same time. When this happened the vehicle lost traction and ABS brakes. On two occasion this failure caused the consumer to lose control of the vehicle. The rear seat slid forward when the brakes were applied abruptly.

While the vehicle was parked, the consumer noticed fluid leaking from underneath the vehicle. The cause has not been determined. Consumer will contact the dealer in the near future. Fuel leaked from the regulator when parked and running. A new regulator was installed.

One month after purchasing the vehicle I had it back at the dealer for seatbelt not retracting properly. The buttons keep breaking off. Had the rear defroster replaced, the A/C had to be fixed, the brakes and rotors replaced, turn signal switch had to be replaced. The gas gauge currently is not working. There has been so many repairs on this vehicle I can't keep track any more. Continue to have a problem with the car shaking when I have been driving it for a while. Dealer acknowledges there is a problem but has no idea what is causing it. This car is my worst nightmare. I have been to the dealer so many times I lost count.
