Well To the OP how has the car been, I am looking at an 02 with a V 6, it's a little rough, and the ABS and traction control light are on, as well as a check engine light.
There are 135,000 miles on it.
The hood needs painted and the left rear door and quarter are dented, with the front dog leg rusting out due to the dent.
He is wanting $1,500.00 I am wanting to pay only $1,000.00 due to the miles and the work needed.

Its not worth the trouble at all. when you buy an alero either u get a great car or you get a lemon. i personally believe you should save you money and buy a car more reliable!
#5 of 6 2002 Alero trac off/worn wheel bearing

Humming started at low speeds 3 months ago. Now Trac Off/ABS/Service engine soon lights on. The humming gets noticeably louder (I think noise is from LF) when entering the "on" ramp on freeway while making sharp RIGHT turn at 35 mph.
Other research tells me the worn hub/bearing is usually the opposite wheel of the turn--sharp right, humming from left wheel. Does this sound accurate? Any feedback is appreciated.

I replaced the wheel hub/bearing in mine, it was a fairly easy job and relatively cheap.
The worn bearing is usually the one you turn into (if you turn right and it makes a humming noise its usually your passenger side)
They are so easy to fix you might as well do both at the same time.
