Oldsmobile Imported the Alero rebadged as Chevy to the East Europe (Russia, Ukraine) and other Europe countries (Belgium, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland).
Why they didn't bother to sell it in France, Italy, Germany, Sweden nor even in the UK market???
Why they didn't sold the Chevrolet Alero to these stronger markets, is a mystery we will never know, once Oldsmobile is dead.
It's easy to see why the car was a Flop in Europe.
- GM didn't even bother to replace the Oldsmobile badge with the Chevy bowtie - They just stuck a "Chevrolet" name plate on the boot lid and there you go:
The Chevrolet Oldsmobile Alero...WTF???
That Dashboard looks Dull - The Car looks nice though.
Do you speak Russian? So you will enjoy this Russian Comparison test:
Chevrolet Alero vs Chrysler Sebring - Check it out: http://www.autoreview.ru/new_site/ye...ca.htm#Scene_1
It's a pity that, the Alero didn't do well in Europe and Probably led Oldsmobile to its death - Or we all should blame Mr. Lutz Insanity, for Oldsmobile's death?
I read several negative owner reviews about the Alero, regarding serious Reliability issues: http://www.carsurvey.org/model_Oldsmobile_Alero.html
Is it True that the Alero was really a Very Unreliable Car?
