Oh yeah, there'* far more obvious examples of "girl cars" out there. You forget the PT cruiser (more like an ugly middle aged girl car)...

The reason I ask is that my bro is looking for one. He'* got a $5,000 car budget. And he wants an Alero!? I say it'* a girl car. He can do better for that money.

I almost bought an Alero (granted it was blue/purple) on the basis it was a "really cute car". So, that might tell you something.... :P

Naw..well, maybe, the Intrigue is more of a mans car...so that leaves the Alero.

only alero I would own would be one of the Final 500. Other than that, I might have to go with mostly a girls car, although I know several guys with them. I have never really been impressed with them wither. Besides, the Intrigue has a better body kit in my opinion.

Found this one but it isn't the one I am thinking of...

well like everyone else has said i do see a lot of girls driving them, same thing with GAs, Sunfires, Cavaliers, yada yada...they were probably designed to appeal to a female market, actually the Alero was supposed to compete with the import tuner craze, so its subtle and cute just like all of them...but if he wants to get one i say go ahead.

well said Jim...well said

and holy wow those body kits look so sexy...the red looks like my car...in my dreams. if ground clearance wasnt already an issue i might just snag one of those..i live in the country on gravel roads..and i already scratch the bottom of my car on my driveway at times.
