Very Unreliable!
By Angie on


2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere AWD 4dr Ext Minivan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


We had continuous repairs that had to be done. Air compressor leaked causing no airconditioner-$3k for repairs. Rear lights always went out having to replace the fuses constantly. Front lights did not seal well even after replacing the covers so we had to replace headlights monthly alot. Sliding doors opened on their own even with vehicle turned off. Engine blew at 90k miles-$6k. Roters and wheel barrings replaced 3 times. Traction system repaired, Cd player jams when changing Cd's, constant electronic malfunctions. In an accident the van at 40mpg rolled when it hit the ditch, both sliding doors popped open during roll and all the windows busted out- extremely unsafe. Very unreliable vehicle!

Best Features

Leather seats(heaters went out), many nice features when they worked like the 6 disc Cd changer, auto radio station finder when traveling, traction system, hauled a small trailer well

Worst Features

constant problems with this vehicle. When the engine went out we were told of course it would and we were lucky it lasted as long as it did since all Olds Sil engines have a bad history of it. We were always scared if it would get us home and wondered what would break down next.Extremely unreliable
