1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette GS 4dr Minivan


We have found this a very frustrating
vehicle to own. The engine and drive
train have been very good but we have
had so many other problems that we wish
we had made a different choice. Where
to start... the power sliding door is
useless. First it would not close
unless you held it shut, now it doesn't
work at all and has become a very heavy
manual door. Numerous trips to the
shop have not helped. The check engine
light kept coming on for several months
but that appears to be fixed now
(finally). The temperature senser
clearly doesn't work, the cup holders
are useless, the rubber stripping falls
off. We regret not paying the extra
money for the Toyota. Get the extended

Best Features

Good engine, good traction, lots of room, generally feels solid.

Worst Features

Extremely poor fit and finish, terrible sliding door, useless cup holders. Very poor quality control. Has cost us countless lost hours at the repair shop.
