New Trans Every 3500?

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette GL 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I didn't have this car at 3500 miles when others lost transmissions, but I have had it at 60k (lost again). Now I hear I need to fix it again (jarring gears). I included traction control problems last time. I did not run it hard (I drive like grandma on purpose) but it did not solve this $4000 later. It runs quiet and smooth sometimes, but I can't put off a transmission repair for complications failure would have - seen elsewhere. It was in the shop a long time despite being partially covered by a plan and monitored for that. They damaged some other features while fixing it at an approved GM dealership (i.e. driver seat warmer).

A few problems, but overall good car

Review

We had this car for nearly 4 years and just traded it in yesterday. Had a few problems along the way... A/C went out 20,00 miles after the expiration of the 60,000 mile warranty ($850 repair), intermittent problems with the power door not working, and for a while, the horn would sound when it was raining without being bumped or anything! They never figured out why but after some inkering with the electrical system by the deal service department, the problem seemed to have resolved. The front cupholder was rather flimsily designed and came out a few times (causing quite a mess!)

This is our second Silhouette and both have been trouble free. Cruises at 75 on the freeway and is very quiet. Seats come out quite easily for lots of storage room.

Definitely consider this van

Review

This has been a very impressive vehicle. The ride is excellent, and the fit and finish are exceptional. We drove Honda, Toyota, Ford, and Chrysler, and this one had better acceleration and handled well both on the highway and around town. The seats are confortable and there is ample room inside for the family and friends. This van is also reliable, despite many hard miles on short trips.
