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


Good looking with lots of features. But way too many mechanical problems. Heated seats went right after the warranty. The gasket problems cost a fortune to fix and occur over and over. The transmission gave out at 110k miles. Towed to Olds dealer. They quoted $3,400 for them to fix and another $625 for other problems they found on the diagnostics tests. It is going to the junk yard as it is not worth fixing. I really regret buying this thing...just shows how far they are behind in matching the higher- quality build of Honda's and Toyota's. It is no wonder GM has problems getting people to want to buy their vehicles and trust them after experiences like this.

Best Features

Six leather captain's chairs, good stereo controls, auto. sliding door, built-in air compressor, lots of room.

Worst Features

Terrible build quality. Horrible engine problems. Atrocious transmission that can barely hit 100k miles before going bust. Just awful.
