It looks great but is not built to last

1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS 4dr Ext Minivan
The rear AC unit is a nice feature
that was novel in 1998 but now it
seems that all minivans have it.
Mechanically the only problem we have
had is the AC which stopped working at
110000 with a shot compressor motor.
The real problem I have had is the
rubber stripping and molding. This
van was 27,000 new and for that much
money I expect the rubber seals to
stay attached to the doors. They have
not. The drivers side wind seals have
fallen off, the molding that seals the
sliding doors have come off. You
would expect some decent glue holding
these things on. The van is not build
to the same standards as the price.
Buy some decent glue for the weather
stripping and rubber seals
