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.

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.

I've been hard on this car; regular oil changes, but that's it. At 185,000, I can say it has never not started, even though we live in the Midwest with harsh winters and it's not always garage-kept. It only died one time when the alternator went out at 175,000 miles, and I had a full day's warning with the battery light flashing, so I was pulling into the driveway when it died. The interior is very comfortable and well-designed. It has very low highway noise. I trust it and would definitely buy another one.

This is the first van we have ever purchased. With that said its been a joy to own, drive and haul kids in! I can't understand why they dont make them anymore. I would definitely buy another one without a doubt!
