1999 Oldsmobile Alero Review

1999 Oldsmobile Alero Review

Pros

  • Sleek styling. Sprightly performance and handling. Ergonomically designed interior. Well-equipped standard model.

Cons

  • Hint of cheapness to interior bits. Lame front passenger cupholder. Unrefined engine noise intrudes upon passenger compartment. Ugly cloth fabric pattern on GX and GL.

What's new

Oldsmobile has dropped the slow-selling Achieva in favor of this new clean-sheet design patterned after the successful Intrigue midsize sedan. Available in both two- and four-door configurations with three well-equipped trim levels, the Alero represents a quantum leap forward over previous small Olds models.
