"I can confidently say that If I had changed the timing belt on this car, it may have lasted another 60,000 miles or more. My 2003 Alero was 3 years old and very reliable, and never had any major problems, so no major work was ever done. I neglected to change the timing chain, and when it broke. I was told it damaged the pistons which damaged the interference engine, and with 200+ miles, it would not be worth fixing. But even after this timing belt broke, it still drove for 2 miles and right into my garage. I had 3 mechanics look at it and confirm it was the timing belt that broke and couldn't believe I drove it home and in my garage. It was the most reliable car for me for 7 years, and 3 years for previous owner."

Pros: "Nice looking style, handles well, low maintenance"

Cons: "Some road noise inside"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"In the 7 years I have had it, it has not needed any mechanical work. I have only had to purchase new tires and routine oil changes. The back seat folds down which is a great asset for transporting long objects and baggage, groceries, etc. I did add a rear spoiler which did not come standard on this edition. The only thing I would change is that there is some road noise inside, so it is not quite as quiet inside as I would like. The car looks sporty (even with 4 doors) and friends have likened it to a Mustang in looks."

Was a GOOD Deal!

"Purchased my 2003 Alero in 2004....was a program car with low mileage....have driven it for 10 years.....normal everyday use...love that the back seats fold down...giving me the capacity of a little SUV...love that! Great on gas as long as you change the oil regularly. I REALLY like my ALERO...a very popular car in New Mexico."

"I love this car. It was my first car ever. And I feel that its a good first car for anyone. The only problem I have is that my steering box seal is bad and leaking. But I chose not to replace it yet. It's a very reliable car."
