This car wasn't a very good car. It
broke down twice during a two year
period. Its not very reliable and is
bad. It wasn't very safe when i got
into a car accident because it killed
my cousin that was in the front right
I bought this van for business purposes, because of it's design. The ride is fantastic and comfort is at par with some of the major luxury brands, it isn't known as "the Cadillac of Minivans" for no reason. Americans can never get their computer systems right, and that became apparent when the ABS, Traction control systems failed. I don't have time to go to dealership to fix it, and even if I took it to the dealership, these sound like expensive repairs. Will just have to buy a new vehicle soon. Great for traveling in, highly recommend this car, if you go on a lot of trips, good gas mileage on the highway, horrible in city.
Smooth ride, rims, look, heated seats, power memory seats, quad captains chairs, dvd-entertainment, dual power sliding doors!
Computer fix, and more power for the engine with better performance and efficiency!
We had high hopes for our Premiere,
having had GM pull us out of our
former Chevy Venture lease. It has
been a reliability nightmare. The
ventilation system does not deliver
the same temp of air between the front
and back (almost 25 degree diff). GM
master techs cannot correct it. The
alternator has died four times, and
still the vehicle has issues. We also
have a 2 inch pile of service invoices
for over two dozen nickel and dime
repairs. At first, we thought we had
the perfect minivan loaded at the
right price. Buyer beware - Olds'
phaseout plays appears to be impacting
quality. Bottom line - look elsewhere.

We picked up our Silhouette, drove it
for about a week before we left for
Florida where we spend the winter. We
made it as far as Gainesville and the
check engine light came on, the gas
mileage decreased and the performance
in traffic decreased dramatically. We
were reasonably close to our
destination so we continued on. Thank
Heaven we didn't stop to have it
checked as we took it in to the dealer
in Bradenton on our arrival and it took
11 days to get it back. The
transmission was out. We were told it
took that long because the transmission
never goes out. DUH! We have it back
but are getting 20 MPG compared to 29
MPG before the transmission quit.

no major problems after the recalls for
the power sliding door switch. Had a
problem with air conditioner pulley
@20000 miles but repaired under
warranty. No problems since. I now have
over 35000 miles on it.
