Olds Makes a Great Van!

by Another Olds Guy from Massachusetts on Sun Jun 29 2014

Was the third owner of this car (grandmother and mother had before me). Needed something to move the kids around and couldn't afford on my own, so mother sold this to me cheap - had around 105k at the time and it lasted about a year. The brakes gave us worrying signs, but we pushed it too long and they went entirely - our mistake. Could have kept for a lot longer, but all new brake systems were more than the car was worth at that point - salvaged it away (sadly). A gorgeous dark green you can't find anymore. Plush leather, seats 7 with ease, lots of cargo room - a great minivan that GM sadly doesn't make anymore. Would highly recommend, just make sure you read the signs it shows you!

I have owned this car for 18 years and she was always there for me when we needed to get out of town on the weekends, Nothing sporty but really utilitarian and comfortable

old but good

by Love my van momma from midwest on Mon May 18 2009

Bought new just before oldsmobile cut off making the model it has been a great car. At 116,000 I still have the same transmission, on the third set of tires and only had one major repair in almost 10 years - rusted wires that arced and had to be replaced. Better yet I have averaged 20 mpg city and 27 mpg on the highway - not bad for a car built before the gas crisis. It still looks good and drives well - I'll drive it into the ground

Our Take on the 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette

For the first time in our marriage, we were fighting over who got the back seat. That's because the 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere Edition has one of the coolest standard features in a domestic minivan - an entertainment center that allows rear passengers to watch videos. Thus far, you can only get this level of luxury on the top-of-the-line $31,000 Premiere version of the Silhouette minivan.

Unfortunately, this may signal the end of license-plate bingo, I Spy and other simpler forms of on-the-road entertainment.
