    My 02 Alero GL2 **warning for 56K**

    Since my virtual garage is stuck with the Cavalier which I added when I first became a member and now I can't remember to change, I thought I'd post pictures of my current vehicle.

    alero is still one of the nicest looking, age-defying designs for a smaller car i've seen in ages..

    the alero coupe is just beautiful, too bad it wont see a redo... great car

    yours looks exactly like my GLS, but I have leather, aluminum wheels and the 3.4L V6 and auto transmission.

    That's why the Alero has always grabbed my eye. One of the better designs out there. Looks good no matter what.

    About the silver cars. The Taurus was bought in August of 2004 (and yes my mom drove the Alero and the Impala but the ride was horrible compared to the Taurus), the Dodge was bough in March of this year to replace an aging and falling-apart 1997 GMC Safari, and then I bought mine in April of 2005 to replace an aging and falling-apart 1991 Cavalier. I just think from the year 2000 till about 2004, silver was a very popular colour. Even the 2002 Ford Focus I was looking at was silver. It is amazing how many silver cars are out there.

    I noticed that the alero has a big front so you'll stay nice and protected in an accident

    Yep, the front of the car is huge. Just how I like it. And with the ECOtec in there, there's so much crumple room that it is not even funny. That is why I liked my 91 Cavalier. Pop the hood and work on the engine. The 2nd gen Cavaliers were bigger than the 3rd gens.

    the 3400 takes up a bit more room, but I love the power out of it, it kicks ass

    can you burn rubber pretty well, I drove a brand new Grand Am with the ECOTEC and auto transmission, it had no ABS or ETS, so from a stop, i floored it and the tires squealed like a crazy pig lol, and for only 140 HP, this car has power, the V6 is even crazier lol.

    Oh yes I can especially since my Goodyear RSAs are at about 3/32nds tire wear. I have a slight problem with traction when it rains though.

    that's what i love about the ETS lol, turn it off and you can burn the hell out of those goodyear's but when it rains or snows, you can be asssured that the ETS will at least try to help you and it does work quite well, my cousin had it in her 01 sunfire and she drove through the snow without a problem
