1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS 4dr Ext Minivan


This GLS has 120k miles on it as of
1/04. Reliability and build quality is
poor. Car has numerous rattles and
needed a head gasket at 80k. Brakes
don't hold up. Car is very comfortable
on the road (Touring HD suspension) and
rides very well. Seats are well designed
and supportive. The engine is
underpowered for the size of the car
resulting in numerous downshifts while
in cruise control on hills. Lots of
rattles and flimsy plastic trim pieces
that break. 2nd row Captain's chairs
don't fold forward in '98 model.

Best Features

Ride, seat design, space, handling

Worst Features

Engine power, build quality, folding seats, fuel economy, rear seat access, better quality trim pieces especially rear deck pulldown strap that breaks continually.
