1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS 4dr Ext Minivan


When shopping for a minivan, the Oldsmobile had the "right stuff". All of the amenities were there in nicely presented package. All would be utopic if not usurped by continual visits to the dealer for repairs. I treat this vehicle gingerly and still am plagued with numberous and unnessecary repairs, i.e...new engine head, windshield, tranny work, 4 cd players, rear passenger climate controls, rear suspension, intake manifold, brakes, electrical, continual squeaks and rattles. All of the aforementioned problems have been addressed more than once. Oh yes, the driver leather seat is wearing rapidly...I'm not a large or heavy person. If there were no problems, this would be an ideal vehicle!

Best Features

Extremely comfortable and versatile seating, litany of options, ergonomics, road manners, utility, decent handling, remote power sliding door, load leveling, cupholders and storage bins galore, rear passenger hvac/audio controls, and great visibility.

Worst Features

Build the thing right. The idea is there, it was just implemented wrongly. Use the venerable and bulletproof 3800 instead of the anemic 3400. When not in the shop, it's a great pleasure to drive.
