1994 Oldsmobile Silhouette 3dr Minivan


Review

While the early design GM vans were
ahead of their time with aerodynamic
design, the rewards paid back in fuel
efficiency and road handling. After
10 years, I have experience no major
mechanical problems other than normal
wear. The van has transported soccer
babies, soccer kids and towed
lightweight trailers.


Best Features

Easy to remove independent seven passenger seating. All seats fold and flip. Ahead of it's time in 1994.


Worst Features

Interior plastic components could be upgraded.

Review

In December 1994, we bought our van
from an elderly couple who had bought
it earlier that year. It drove great
until a 5 hour trip in the hot sun
made it break down. That was in 2002.
We got it fixed and then in 2003 we
started having problems again. The
engine is going, and our mechanic said
it is on it's last leg. It's 10 years
old with 136,000 miles. I'm surprise
that it is still running after all of
these years and all of the harsh trips
it has been through.


Best Features

I love the removable seats, the tail lights are unique, durable interior materials, great brand that we can trust.


Worst Features

I know that this is before the time of 4 door minivans, but if there was a 4th door, the van would be more enjoyable.

Review

I bought a Silhouette Oldsmobile and I
enjoyed it. It help up really well in
the interior and exterior. Both the
interior and exterior designs are
great. The Silhouette was a great van
for my family, and it should be one
for yours. I got a great van. There is
no other van around that has the same
sporty looks as ours.


Best Features

The seats are comfortable, and the features work well.


Worst Features

I think they should make the back windows open up more. This isn't a thing just the Oldsmobile Silhouette did, all vans are like this.

Review

Bought the van brand new - after 9
years I have been very statisfied.
Zero mechanical problems - only thing
I have had to do was basic maintance
(tires, brakes, LOF etc). No
breakdowns vs. friends who had
Cavan's. The plastic / composite body
is great for Western NY winters where
Rock Salt destroys car bodies. This
car still looks great.

The dustbuster look isn't for everyone
but the areodynamics work well to
provide pretty good gas mileage.

Power is good (180 some horses) for a
minivan.

Handling is very good for a minivan.


Best Features

individual removable seats are great - they are light enough my wife can remove them vs. the benches in the cavans of that era. Plastic body will NEVER rust...


Worst Features

Stronger suspension for better towing would be nice - it is too lightly sprung for towing any more than 1000 or so pounds.

Review

I have owned many minivans and this
one being on the end of the list, but
not as bad as Chrysler and its
tranny... See favorites and
improvments.


Best Features

I wanted to get attention and I sure did in this van. But not the kind I was expecting... I upgraded to a 97 Aerostar AWD. I loved the seat removal capabilities!


Worst Features

Vehicular Design is ugly, tranny always shifted poorly, but my wife never noticed, ride was ok for the driver/pass- but horrible for the rear pass,Low head room,driver seat IS WAY to close to the steering wheel at all times, leather felt cheap
