1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere 4dr Ext Minivan

Review

The car performed well in the first 4 years. The car developed a head gasket leak which allowed engine coolant Dexon to leak into the engine oil. The problem was misdiagnosed and eventually the crank shaft broke at 70,000 miles. We had to replace the engine. GM paid half -- out of warranty. We had frequent trouble with the power sliding door.

Best Features

Space and comfort. Loved the built-in air pump.

Worst Features

Needs to be made more reliable. GM should stop using Dexon engine coolant which mixes too well with oil making diagnosis of a coolant leak too difficult.
