THis car has been pretty good. I've read only a few bad reviews on them and I think it's the owner's fault for not maintaining and taking car of them. I've only had to take this car in the shop TWICE in 91000 miles....not bad!! I've been happy with it.
Very nice cruiser. Only regular
maintenance and a recent $2000 repair
have been needed. Door's shape was ill
conceived. That "point" at the top has
drawn blood from unsuspecting
passangers on several occasions
(haven't been sued yet). Seats are too
low to the ground but newer models have
taken care of that. Can't say enough
about the ride comfort (have big
comfortable leather seats) and the
engine power of the 3.8. Newer models
should not have gone to 3.4. I agree
with other reviewer...engine and
drivetrain may last to 250k miles.
Not a bad van. Drivability is nice, handles well, nice power from 3800 v6 engine. Have a 151,000 and have had no major problems. Just a few sensors, EGR valve, Mass Air Flow and Throttle Position Sensor. Great gas mileage for a v6! I pull well over 20 city and almost 30 hwy!
We nothing but problems with this 1995 mini van. We had to have the engine rebuilt when it was five years old with 59,000 miles on it. Then in 5 years after that it blew again. Now we have a used engine and that one blew and now we have another one which seems to be ok so far. Wouldn't buy another one again.
Our family bought our 1995 Silhouette new 9 years ago and it has been a champ! The 3.8 V-6 and transmission are fantastic! We have towed boats and trailers with van without incident for years. I never liked the seats as I thought they did not have enough support for long trips - but the van is a great hauler. Now at 103,000 miles some teenager hits it hard and is probably totalled- its a sad day as we will begin our search for another van that will last as long.
