Review

While my Grand Voyager was in the shop for repairs I drove my friends `99 Silhouette and was pleasantly surprised how well it handled. I was looking for a new used vehicle and got lucky to find an Oldsmobile Silhouette 2003.


Favorite Features

The tight grip in curves even on high speed, smooth ride, wide seats comfortable even for not so skinny people. Love the fold down backseats. Holds more gallons then other vans. Kids love electric sliding door. Rides very smoothly and quietly.


Suggested Improvements

Heat and ventilation is noisy when turned on 2 or 3 or R, lacking frontcontrol for backspeakers, lacking reset for trip mileage,

2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere Fwd 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my third GM minivan, second Silhouette. If my satisfaction continues at this level, I'm in line for a fourth. I miss the plastic body, but the new features and level of comfort are superb. Much improved over my '92 model. A bit short on power for towing, and mileage drops to high teens with a trailer, but without the trailer I am getting high twenties MPG.


Favorite Features

comfort items like memory seat, dual- zone front air, rear temp/air controls for rear passengers, backup sensor.


Suggested Improvements

a bit more power for towing without losing so much fuel economy and so much speed when not in flat areas. Plastic body - it was a great idea.

Review

This is my 2nd minivan purchase. This one is very different from my previous van-Windstar. It drives like a car not like a van. I hated driving a van until we purchased the Silhouette. The comfort & spacious interior are 2nd to none.


Favorite Features

Interior...everything is practical


Suggested Improvements

none come to mind.

Review

I an A test driver for General Motors. I paid for this when I bought a New Oldsmobile. This cas has been back to the dealer eight times now. Mr Goodwrench makes the problems worse, as often an making them better. No more GM cars for me.


Favorite Features

Not reliable. Have had transmission problems. Computer brain failed twice. Car had had to be towed three times in 1800 miles!!


Suggested Improvements

They should have quit making Oldsmobiles years ago.
