2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Plenty of room for hauling kids, work stuff, etc. MAJOR ISSUE with electrical system. One little short in electrical system and you will have constant problems that pop up out of nowhere. Especially with so many features requiring that electrical system to stay up and running.


Best Features

Tons of room and the removable seats are great!


Worst Features

Fix that electrical system. Cannot trust the vehicle to stay running once an electrical problem starts.

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette GL 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is our second Silhouette and both
have been trouble free. Cruises at 75
on the freeway and is very quiet.
Seats come out quite easily for lots
of storage room.


Best Features

Size, quad seats, and easy seat removal for more storage


Worst Features

We have one automatic sliding door and would like two next time.

Review

This is the second Oldsmobile
Silhouette we have owned. The first was
a 1991 with 210,000+ miles on it. Over
the ten years of use repairs were minor
and I still had the original engine and
transmission. The 2001 is as good;
however we miss the composite dent-free
body.


Best Features

Comfort on trips and great gas mileage. It has a range of +500 miles on a tankful. Great vesatility, from carrying 7 passangers to a load of cargo.


Worst Features

Return of the dent-free composite body.

Review

We bought this van just over 2.5 years
ago. We have had no problems with it
and are very satisfied. It handles
well, is quite comfortable, and has all
of the options we were looking for. We
use the air compressor quite
frequently - great for traveling. We
took our 13 & 1 year old sons on
vacation - nearly 4000 miles round
trip. This van made it easy!


Best Features

stowable rear seat, very easy to use and very convenient


Worst Features

make it available with cloth seats, I am not a huge fan of leather.
