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.

2004 Oldsmobile Alero Owner Comments

problem #4

Oct 062014

Alero 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,280 miles


Not able to operate the window on the driver side which is a great inconvenience. Also costly.

problem #3

Jun 092006

(reported on)

Alero GL2 v-6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,500 miles

The second of what will eventually be three window regulator replacements. Covered by standard GM warranty so I don't know what the out-of-pocket costs would be if not covered.

(reported on)

Alero GL2 v-6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles

First window regulator failed after owning the car about 5 or 6 months. Covered by the standard 3year/36,000 mile GM warranty. At the time, I did not know that two others would fail including the lastest failure just last week-end.

Alero GL2 v-6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,500 miles

This is the third window regulator that has failed since I brought the car (used with 20,000 miles) on it about 15 months ago. Thankfully it is still under warranty and if the other one goes while under warranty, I will hopefully not have to put any $ out of pocket towards yet another fix.
