I know what you mean, but then again, buying a used car is a hit and miss kind of game, the Alero could be perfect or the Alero could be a lemon, same applies for the Grand Am GT. Ask the dealer if you could take it home for a day and after the motor is warmed up, drive it easily, then hard and give it some real shakedown. That should help ya out. For example my Bonne, I pretty much got a perfect running car, it'* been flawless but I lost my ABS, that'* better than losing the motor.

Just go with what your heart wants.

Grand Am = Alero as far as I am concerned...

Cool, it sounds real nice. I'm glad for you **coughtraitorcough** (Just kidding really )

Seriously, I like those cars, i actually considered a Alero but they were way too small for me. I had zero headroom hence my Bonneville
