The Oldsmobile Silhouette Was a Really Weird Luxury Minivan

Makina dhe automjete

The original Oldsmobile Silhouette was weird, quirky, and bizarre. It was also the original luxury minivan, and today I'm reviewing the Silhouette to show you what it was like. I am also going to show you the quirks and features of the Silhouette, and I will show you how the Oldsmobile Silhouette drives.

    If I were to list my favorite reviews, it would include the Vector W8 and this - the 1996 Oldsmobile Silhouette. It would be the only list, ever, that includes both the Vector W8 and the 1996 Oldsmobile Silhouette.

    We used to have tons of these around, especially the Chevy and Pontiac versions. Eventually replaced by the Venture and Montana, then Chevy Uplander. My Uplander has 200 hp 3.9 V6. Pretty good car for 12 years old. Well equipped but doesn't have that power sliding door! Our first Chevy Venture had the built in kiddy seat. Super convenient!

    Dust Buster vans were AWFUL when new. Reliability was GM typical, tbi engine with 3 spd auto on an era of multi port efi and overdrive transaxle. Astro was much better minivan

    I love how they designed the dashboard in a way that when the passenger airbag would become law they wont have to redesign the dash mould.

    It's interesting how after this US minivans went back to, well, van-shaped but in Europe the whole MPV segment exploded in popularity and cars like the Renault Espace are this exact shape to this day, giant front quarter windows and all.

    You forgot the air ride self leveling on board air pump. The one where the switch controlling the height was prone to falling off resulting in a jacked up rear end until you taped the switch back into position. We had the TranSport, Pontiacs version. 1992 version, and had the 3.8 woohoo. We loved it and put over 160,000 on it with no major issues raising 4 kids. Pontiac’s version was basically plastic and never had issues with door,dings and rust.

    My neighbour back in the late 80's lived in Canada for a few years but returned to UK with a later model Pontiac TransSport in the early 90's and imported their mini van to the UK. As far as I know the only one in the UK. Looked futuristic till the '96 Renault Espace came along.

    The design is based on the 1986 pontiac transport concept. To change the spark plugs on the back of the motor, you had to crawl in or also called "making love" to the engine

    About the children's seat: The Volvo XC90 actually has a similar feature, but it's a safety seat for children that folds from the middle seat in the second row
