Review of the 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette

  • Even though the Silhouette is destined to die as GM phases out Oldsmobile, this is one minivan that deserves careful consideration, especially if you're looking for a luxurious, fully equipped all-wheel-drive model. The only real competition on that front comes from Chrysler.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Available all-wheel drive, rewarding amount of standard and optional features.

  • Cons

    Spotty interior build quality, poor offset crash test score, poor resale value.

  • What's New for 2003

    For 2003, traction control and 16-inch wheels are now standard on two-wheel-drive models.

Vehicle: 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

After having this van for 7 years, it has been a great van. However, now everything is starting to go - one thing at a time. It's nickle and diming me to death now. Short term, great auto - long term - don't think I'd by another one. The middle bucket seats are great for road trips. The back bench seat isn't that comfy, but we are never back there anyway. The back has lots of room.

Wonderful van. City MPG is 24 at 94,000 miles. Hwy MPG is 27-28 at 65-70 MPH with air running. Only problem was rear brake cylinders leaking at 68,000. Has been serviced regular.
