1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS 4dr Ext Minivan


we don't stay put much. Our three
teens plus two cousins took a 6000
mile trip with camping gear and it
cruised nicely at 70 all day, day
after day when it was brand new, stuff
piled 2-3 feet high on the roof. Now,
a hundred thousand miles later, my
daughter has it; Its been to Indiana,
Tennessee and Maine this summer. Oil
consumption is zero. It gets changed
at 7500 miles with synthetic oil. The
handling is sure, and the ride quiet
on Michelins. No rust tho' it only
gets washed when it rains. Only
problems are the power sliding door
which is prone to failure (we use it
as non power now) and the brakes have
been problematic.

GM still doesn't know a thing about sound systems in cars under $50000. Cars are getting so expensive that warrantees should be better. Imports offer 10 yr 100,000 power train on $11,000 cars!
