Need suv, don't want to sell Olds
By Jason on
2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS 4dr Minivan
We bought our Silhouette with 67k on it and now have over 120k miles. I heard these vans were trouble when I bought it. All I can say is it has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. I like everything about it except cupholders between the front seats which get stepped on then break. To date I have not had to to any repairs at all but have kept up on the preventative schedule. I tow a 3500 lb boat medium distances and this van tows great but lacks 4 wheel drive. The driver heated seat quit working though at 100k. I really need a 4x4 but I hate to see it go. A tip, I put a $1 bottle of fuel injector cleaner in the gas one time and the power increase was huge.
Upscale interior, Leather, Heated seats. A lot of power for a small engine, tows heavy loads well. Very reliable. Very cheap to buy used.
Most improvements I could think of were addressed in the next generation.
