1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette GLS 4dr Ext Minivan


When shopping for a minivan, the
Oldsmobile had the "right stuff". All
of the amenities were there in nicely
presented package. All would be utopic
if not usurped by continual visits to
the dealer for repairs. I treat this
vehicle gingerly and still am plagued
with numberous and unnessecary
repairs, i.e...new engine head,
windshield, tranny work, 4 cd players,
rear passenger climate controls, rear
suspension, intake manifold, brakes,
electrical, continual squeaks and
rattles. All of the aforementioned
problems have been addressed more than
once. Oh yes, the driver leather seat
is wearing rapidly...I'm not a large
or heavy person. If there were no
problems, this would be an ideal

Best Features

Extremely comfortable and versatile seating, litany of options, ergonomics, road manners, utility, decent handling, remote power sliding door, load leveling, cupholders and storage bins galore, rear passenger hvac/audio controls, and great visibility.

Worst Features

Build the thing right. The idea is there, it was just implemented wrongly. Use the venerable and bulletproof 3800 instead of the anemic 3400. When not in the shop, it's a great pleasure to drive.
