170k and still going

1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS 4dr Ext Minivan
Minimal problems with the Silhouette for the miles. I use Mobil 1 (engine) and flush the trans completely (including torque converter). Just replaced struts for the first time. Rear wheel brake cylinders making noise (seals probably need replaced) Power door is dead (expensive to fix) Power window motor replaced (cheap fix). A few lights on the radio out. Serpentine belt replaced. Driver seat cushion replaced. That's basically it. Highly recommend this vehicle.
Replacement parts are generally inexpensive, Great gas mileage (25mpg average), Handles well, No blind spots, Great acceleration.
Seats could be more comfortable for a 6 ft person. They hit you high between the shoulders. Headlights seem to collect moisture. Could be designed better.
