I originally came to I80 Auto to just browse their lot. They seemed a little different than the other lots in the area, more cars, nicer looking buildings, etc... My salesman Mike was really patient with me because I wasn't sure what I was looking for. I didn't intend to buy a car then but one of the vehicles I test drove I really liked and the manager was willing to work with my on the payments. I love my new Subaru Outback, I spent a little more time at the dealership that I wanted to, but the payment and the car made it worth it. -Steph

I am the original owner of 2002 old minvian. I just made it 99,700 miles and decided to sell it and buy a 2008 Chrysler T&C. I basically had zero problems with the minivan and it was the best vehicle I have ever owned. On the way home from the Chrysler dealership after purchasing my 2008 T&C with 15,000 it started making brake noise. Had to replace front/rear pads/rotors and they also replaced the battery. I know GM takes a lot of grief but in my experience their quality has been very good.

Very Unreliable!

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!

Auto leveling system stinks. keeps raising the van till it tops out. Replaced shocks and vacume lines. Only 1 set of shocks made for this turd. I have to disconnect the hose to relieve the pressure. Sensor on fuel tank has quit. Motor on rear window had to be replaced, couldnt close the window. Vehicle is noisy to drive. Very slow to heat up in the winter. Right front turn signal decides when it wants to work, replaced socket already. New front hubs, control arms. 850.00

We purchased our 02' Silhouette in 07'. One of our best investments. Many options are standard on the Premier package. It is spacious and fun to drive. The entertainment package keeps the kids occupied on long trips. I would recommend this vehicle to family who needs room and family mobility with out sacrificing the higher end comforts. Leather a plus for cleaning up after kids!!

We’ve been very happy with this van. For a family of four plus a dog, we have always had enough room for our stuff – even a canoe! Mechanically, the vehicle has been pretty consistent. Only major repair was a transmission rebuild at 60,000 miles that was covered under warranty. Now at 80,000 miles, she burns a little oil, but otherwise runs great and considered reliable. Recent 700 mile trips have proved uneventful. The interior has held up very well, the DVD and audio is still great. We’ll plan to keep our “Happy Van” for another 2-3 years for those high- capacity needs and five-plus passenger shuttles.

Bought this van from a private owner. It is a nice luxury minivan with lots of neat features. I love the dual power sliding doors and the rear parking sensor. It drives real smooth and it's been great on trips. I have the van regularly serviced and change the oil every 5000 miles and belts and hoses every 2 years. This van has been very reliable for me. I guess I'll have to look at the Buick or Chevy version when I go to replace it.

The van is now showing its age with having to replace the front wheel hub assemblies on both sides (very expensive). The wiring to the hubs has corroded and therefore had to be replaced (costly). The interior is flooding due to improper drainage of condensation of the A/C unit. The power of the engine is very limited compared to the imports. Have also had to replace the rear wiper motor, contacts to the power sliding doors, rear window motors. The headlight assemblies both leak considerably, causing the halogen lamps to need replacing more than necessary.

With 2 young children, thought we HAD to have a minivan. Shouldn't have been this one. Heated seats gave up within first 3 months. Fan control resistor at 5 months. A/C condenser cracked at 70K miles. Intake gasket started leaking at 80K. Poor build quality, and the noisiest highway vehicle I've driven since my '76 K5 Blazer.

This car was OK for a few months and then a long string of small failures started. Then recently the intake manifold gasket failed and almost destroyed the engine. GM has known about these bad gaskets for years and told no one. The service department secretary diagnosed my problem as soon as I walked in. The recall for the 3.4L engine would cost more than GM has in the bank, that's why they won't do it. I hope they never sell another vehicle!

Never a GM product again

We were quite fortunate we bought this during a promoton where GM was selling it with 60,000 mile, 60 month warrantries. We used it. The seat warmers constantly failed. One of the power slide doors failed. The rear tail lights constantly burned out, and GM refuses to admit a flaw. Even the DVD remote is a disappointment ... it is constantly running down the battery. We know have plenty of batteries and a screw driver to deal with this.

Ou Oldsmobile Silhouette Premiere had 10,400 miles on it when we purchased it, but at 30,000 things started to fail. First the AC condenser leaked freon, then had to have rear brakes replaced owing to the shop said was a rock between the pad and rotor (not a warrantee item). Last, the head gaskets started to leak at less than 39,000 miles (a $1,700 job). After 50 plus years as a GM owner, things are going wrong that I never experienced with other cars. I am losing faith in the GM brand, owing, chiefly, to GM refusing to quit using the same cheap gaskets for the last 10- 12 years that I am aware of.

No more GM's

I bought this vehicle new in 2002. It had a sticker price of over $35,000. I now have 50,000 miles and can't wait to unload it. The vehicle has AWD and is a nice looking van but it has one flaw. It's a GM! I have had to replace the wheel bearings twice, the heater in the front sear twice and now the rear gasket needs replaced at a cost of $900. GM of course is not willing to assist in the repair even though there are only 50,000 miles. I have a 1997 Dodge Caravan with 105,000 miles and it never needed any repairs other than normal maintenance. I am getting it repaired and then trading it in on anything other than a GM. I would not recommend a GM and I will never ever buy one again.

This vehicle is the top of the line from what I have seen in minivans, total luxury. We bought this vehicle used and we did'nt know all the neat extras it had until we got it home, we were just looking for a nice minivan, but got so much more. Has a great 6-track cd player, electronic sliding doors,(with many different locations inside the car from which to open them), really nice to have when you are carrying baby seats and groceries etc. Van is nice and roomy, for real people, not just kids. Overall a great choice for anyone wanting lots of room and luxury.

Like Van, but has been unreliable.

Traded our 2000 GL for this GLS. No major problems with either van, a great deal on Olds! Seats are sized for REAL adults, not like Honda's pint sized seats! Solid, Dependable, Luxurious, Great gas mileage, hauling capabilities, towing package, self- leveling suspension! Fantastic, sure are going to miss Oldsmobiles when they are no longer made. :-(

The Olds Silhouette far exceeded my expectations. The interior is comfortable, roomy and versatile. I took 6 persons and luggage for a 2000 mile trip. The vehicle has been completely reliable thus far. The oil monitor has saved me money. The Olds is as fast as any sedan I've driven and is still quite at 100 MPH (shh... don't tell mom).

First- I am convinced THERE IS NOTHING MORE RELIABLE THAN A GM ENGINE. Second- This vehicle is big, fat and comfortable yet economical to run, maintain and insure. More stuff: I looked aaround for 6 mo.s to replace my trusty 1990 SILHOUETTE (bought used in 94 for doing conventions), which I absolutley loved. Traded at 181,000 miles Needed nothing but gas and religiously changing oil, standard maintenance like a few sets of tires, mufflers, alternators. Still running like a clock but the rest was dying.

This is my second Silhouette. I had a 2000 that only had some minor problems in its 30,000 miles.(cupholder, pull strap) I now have 6000 miles on my 2002, and there were no adjustments or problems with the vehicle. It stickered for just under 29,000 and after the $3,500 rebate, $1,500 owner loyalty, $1,000 rebate instead of the 5/60 warranty, $850 GM card rebate, and the $2,500 discount, I paid less than $19,500.

First off, in terms of absolute value the Oldsmobile shines in terms of equipment and price. The ride, drive, and function of the van are good, but I would enjoy more power under the hood. Compared to the other GM vans, the Olds to me is the most attractive looking package. The Chevrolet for the same money seems just plain cheap. Disappointing are so-so fit and finish of body panels and a minor HVAC problem. If GM could sweat the small stuff a bit better - they would be back to #1.

Upon purchasing the Olds I began to get sweaty palms thinking that I was going to have quality problems. Most reviews had the Honda or Chrysler as the van to purchase and also the common public opinion that Japanese imports are made better. However I just liked the look and ride of the Olds. And I have not been dissappointed in anyway. This van has been a superior vehicle in everyway.

Our first Van, thought I'd hate it coming from a sports sedan, but we love it. The Olds/GM's are strong contenders I think. Pluses: * Interior made for American sized people by Americans * Tons of features come on the van * Great fuel milage yet power is enough to spin the wheels even on dry pavement * Transmission is strong, smooth, great shifting and reliable - not like Chrysler or Honda with problems. * Handling with 16" michelins very good * Self-leveling suspension nice touch! We could not belive all the features on the van (we have a used 98 version) and how nice it was inside.

Lots of Body roll, and weak gripping tires even at moderate speeds in turns. (Yes I know it's a minivan, but even so, it's sub-standard. The driver's seat needs to go. A "jackhammer" noise from the engine compartment sounds after warmup on occasion with the heating defroster (front) turned on. Did this like clockwork from new to time of recent service. Took it to dealer (they insist they did nothing to "fix" the problem) problem went away after they had it in the shop for 6 hours. I wonder if they get Factory points to avoid claims that can lead to lemon law claims? Hmmm. Center Console not being standard is a real "RIP-OFF". Would I buy this vehicle again? No. I'd buy the Chrysler.
