1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS 4dr Ext Minivan


I was against the purchase of this vehicle from the beginning as I was suspect of GM's ability to provide a quality product. My suspicions were accurate. This week I forked out $1,550 for a new head gasket. Two years ago, it needed an intake manifold gasket for $800. VHS system is broken, trim and molding parts falling off van. A/C will not work, keyless entry broken, rear wheel cylinder needed replacement, TCM sensor broken, it's just endless. GM should be embarrassed for the lack of build quality in this vehicle. I am still waiting for the recall notices. As for my Honda and Nissan purchases prior to buying this van, I never had any of these problems.

Best Features

I'll update when I think of something.

Worst Features

I have never owned another vehicle that needed as many repairs as this van does. For a vehicle to need both a head gasket and an intake manifold gasket screams design flaw and GM should take responsibility. GM needs vast improvement in build quality.
