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.

Funniest thing I ever saw, was a Lumina, you remember they were all smooth, stopping at a red light covered in snow. All the snow slid forward and broke both huge windshield wipers clean off while they were running. I laughed so hard I cried. You're laughing just reading this. LOL

I owned one of these for like 2-3 years loved it.....drove it to Florida a few times on Vacation and it had high rear running lights and people would follow those lights for hundreds of miles at a time, I own a Tahoe now and the upper rear panel remind me of the Silhouette. The first time I waxed the front fenders, it waxed up weird, I realized the fenders were plastic, I had never seen a car made of plastic, it totally freaked me out for a long time.

You have to admit, General Motors made some delightfully quirky and unique cars in the 90s. Some of them high quality, some of them Pontiac’s and Silouettes 😆

Why do americans always need so much horsepower when there´s only 70mph allowed all over the country ? 120hp seems like enough for such a van.

Our first minivan was the Lumina APV variant and a favourite family hauler of ours. Plastic body and over engineered sub frames were my favourite quirks of this family of dust Busters. Sparks plugs were a pain to change. These are sought after now because the bodies never rust and if rust checked or proofed, they last forever. However, we moved on to the Euro Suv diesels after.

What I don't like is how American car makers chose to wait for the Government to legally require certain safety features before installing them. Why would they do that? When it comes to occupant safety, you'd think it'd be common sense. 🤔

I remember when this was sold. I found it way more attractive than Chrysler's minivans, the Dodge Caravan and the Plymouth Voyager. Why it wasn't popular is beyond me. I would've bought one if I didn't already have a car.

I recall the Chevy Lumina when it first came out it appeared space age. The van was awesome with a ton of room and its massive red lite dash and it was good on fuel. Car were better and cheaper in the 90's! Sick of all the 4 cylinder under powered over priced trash of today! Can not buy a car with a v6 any more.

Those contact pieces on the sliding door would get oxidized over time and the connection would be wonky after a while now they just use direct wiring from the door to the body of the car which eliminates this problem.
