The Oldsmobile Silhouette Was a Really Weird Luxury Minivan

15 243
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.

Life is too short to be working for someone else's dream. Be a billionaire of your own. If you want to go big, stop thinking small. successful people are not people who never fail, but people who never quit. If you want to be a billionaire, then think like one, act like one, and live like one because there’s no other greater joy than having financial freedom and a life free of debts, All thanks to Mr carlos cause he made me who I am today through forex trade. He has helped me a lot with his trading strategies which helps me to earn $12,550 weekly with an initial investment of $1,000. I really appreciate it and can't help but let others know about it. it is so suitable anyone can trade from anywhere and anythime, reach out to Mr carlos on IG @carlos_1uptrades. his indeed a God Sent.

Was there any difference between the Oldsmobile Silhouette and the Chevy Lumina APV? I remember a family friend state that the leaf springs where fiberglass and that they had a tendency to shatter in the Canadian deep freeze that I am in.

My wife and I were given a free Lumina APV upon moving home from getting out of the navy. It was in mint condition too. As ugly as that thing was and a turning radius worse than a school bus, it helped us get on our feet and save for a house and a preowned Honda Odyssey touring. Night and day difference! The crazy thing was that because it was all aluminum body/doors and plastic panels, it had no deterioration or rust in the body whatsoever.

@Doug DeMuro since you have already did the grand national and you did this minivan you should do the super rare turbo chrysler minivans they were built to compete with the dodge spirit turbo AND carry the whole family across the finish line lmao

SUV's aren't "cool" either. They had that perception at one time compared to minivans, but not so much anymore. It's like saying Starbucks is 'cooler' than McDonald's at this late date, with more of the former than the latter nearly everywhere. So much for the over-priced, bitter coffee chain's "exclusivity".

About that child seat: The idea is awesome but I think it is not being implemented into modern cars because of european laws. I don't know about America but at least in Germany there are laws for child car seats and how old a kid has to be to use a certain seat etc. There are different sizes of seats for different age groups.
This build in child seat would probably not fit German (and other European countries) laws.

Technology was too advanced for the consumer back then the consumer had to catch up to the technology

The same year Honda Odyssey was way better in every way, also can still find driving since they bulletproof.

To be fair, it did have some strangely unique and useful features you never see in cars today. Built in hidden child's seat? Great idea. AC vents that blow on your neck/back? Seems real nice.

My family had a Pontiac transport (basically the pontiac equivalent)
GrumpyBear - 11 päeva tagasi
Thanks for this review. It brings back so many memories. My parents had one when I was growing up and we had a lot of store and church trips in it. Ours had the same cloth seats and lack of power door but it was black and white just like that one. When I drove it as a teenager I remember it would really want to lurch when you first started to press the gas and then everything afterwards was a struggle. If you ever get a hold of a 91 Chevy Lumina or 94 Saturn SL2 my childhood will be complete.

I still like these GM vans. The Transport has a better look. But it is still an ahead of its time style. Trying to copy the Previa. GM did it pretty well. Pity people were stupid.

GM made a lot fo ugly cars back then and did so for a couple decades. Not sure who was working there that had such horrible taste but I'm surprised they worked there for so long. On top of that a lot of GM vehicles from the mid 90s were throw aways and didn't last more then 2 decades... laughable...

Wasn’t a success?! Back in the day this was all you saw on the road where I lived anyway. Seemed like everyone had one. Never heard it called a dust buster though. We always called it the door stop.
