2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette Reviews

I have 286,745 miles on my olds, same engine and tranny. rebuilt tranny about 155,000 but done nothing to engine but change oil. it has been a great van.
Single worst vehicle I've ever owned, and that's coming from someone who previously owned an '88 Chrysler Lebaron. Replaced the tranny at 66,000 miles. The 3400 V-6 was prone to pulling the rocker arms out of the aluminum heads - finally had to replace the entire engine at 90,000 miles. Currently having ongoing electrical issues with the brake lights. Just does not seem to be a well-built, well...
luxury ride, whisper quiet
