My 1992 Oldsmobile Silhouette has been a very good vehicle. It has great handling, a smooth ride, cargo flexibility and good fuel economy. Mechanically it runs great. however, it is on its 4th water pump, third radiator and I don't know why. It does have 176,000 miles on it now, things are wearing out right and left but engine keeps running well. All of the door handles have been repalced because they were poorly made. Also, the seat belts have also been replaced, who has to replace seatbelts and door handles? I never have in any other vehicle That I have owned. Replacing the starter is one of the hardest repairs I have done. Others I could not even attempt, like the intake manifold gasket. With the long nose, shouldn't there be more room under the hood to reach and repair?
The air compressor in the rear, 7 captain chairs, map lights, quiet cabin, and good drivetrain power.
Use all the dash space for something useful. Use stronger material for the door handles. Use seatbelts that last, you know like the ones used in the '70's that never wear out. Add lift out carpet pads in each seat section. Improve the seat design for long trip comfort. Use stronger materials for the window latches, plastic doesn't work.
The drive was excellent. My children
wasn,t fustrated even without
airconditioning. But tommorrow we will
have air and they probably wants to
ride all day. Im happy thier happy now
