1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette GL 4dr Ext Minivan


We bought our totally loaded Oldsmobile Silhouette GL new. It has everything a GLS has except leather. We've put 80,000 plus miles on it and we can't complain. It's been extremely reliable and economical. We've had to replace tires and the coil packs failed at around 60,000 miles. The intake gasket was replaced under warranty as a recall. Everything else has worked just fine. I changed the front brake pads myself at around 40,000 miles. The rears were done just recently. She's due for shocks and another set of tires, both of which are reasonable in my opinion. She's never left us stranded or even made as much as a hiccup while on the road. I've just done oil changes and regular maintenance for 80,000 miles and almost 7 years.

Best Features

The reliability, rear A/C, torquey engine, great passing power, handsome styling for a minivan, fun to drive (for a minivan), economical, and traction control.

Worst Features

Give it more horsepower and AWD.
