Aleros are dirt cheap for what they are. I think it's a relatively undesirable car from a dead manufacturer - not something appearing on most peoples' shopping lists. Because of that, they are a real bargain all said and done IMHO. There is nothing bad to say about the Ecotec - it was a good motor even at the time - and the 4Txx transmissions were built to handle more power than the Ecotec can dish out, so they should give long life. Brakes and climate control stuff is all GM parts-bin stuff, so nothing special but nothing fragile either.
Assuming you keep the modest maintenance requirements up to date, I can't even imagine what problems you might have. So far, the only unexpected repair on the aforementioned Grand Am was an ignition switch failure. It was a pricey fix in the scope of the value of the car, but also the only thing that ever actually failed.
