    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.

Maybe start driving some more ‘any man’ cars. You sound like an elitist. Every single ‘quirk and oddity’ you pointed out are on modern cars. Unopenable wing windows in front are common still. Sloped windshield? Yup. Buttons to open sliding doors? Yup. Windows in back that only open a slit to allow in air? Every van ever. Window in back that doesn’t open? Vans, SUVs, hatchbacks. Engine that goes under the body mostly? Vans, today... walk around cars that don’t cost Over $100,000 and you won’t sound like an ass

"Bad styling, weak power train, poor quality, I like it because its quirky and it's weird and its rare" funny, those are all the reasons I like doug, maybe he's onto something.

I think the aircond vents behind the driver's head isn't a blower fan, but a suction vent for the rear seat blower fans, that is why the rear seat controls only has fan speeds but not temperatures.

That sound is the relay latching the door. It's intentional, but it's not there as a warning. If you watch the door, your fingers would have already been pinched since the door's at its latching point already.

When you run out of super cars but still want to upload a video because loving your work :) But seriously... if you put some nice rims under it and paint it matte black with tinted windows and "pimp" it a bit you could make a awesome futuristic looking back to the 80's style mini van and put it in movies or something like a special forces car.

I think the missing airbag is embarassing, but what about the headrests on the backseats? Are those suicideseats? I don‘t understand why nobody likes to buy US cars outside the US 😅😅

Had a Chevy Venture with that same motor. Two, yes two head on accidents, driving it through water so high it stalled and wouldn't turn over for days AND running it at Bradenton Motorsports dragway here in FL, (17.89 at 89mph btw) that van was a BEAST... Would smoke the tires through first and run down a 4.6 F150...

"I borrowed this vehicle from a viewer here in San Diego who has a number of 1980's and 1990's General Motors vehicles." Sounds like someone's planning on starting a demolition derby.

My family rented one of these in 1991 for a trip to Alabama. My then 9-year old self thought it was rather advanced. My now 38 year-old self sees this poor vehicle as something that didn't deserve to have the Oldsmobile name.

They actually kept that door closing warning noise until sometime in the early 2000s. A friends family had a later model silhouette and it sounded exactly the same.

My wife have had 2 , a 94 and a 96 . Our 96 had 270,000 on it when the frame failed up by the passenger side by under the radiator. I foolishly continued to drive it until the steering column separated from the rack and pinion . Praising GOD for his mercy it happened in a turn at 2 miles in hour to the left . We live in Ohio , the salt kills the unibody frames. Note to owners , if your sliding door stops working because you bumped it . disconnect the positive terminal waite 10 minutes and reconnect. We still have our 96 it has only 135,000 however the frame is going. They have been a great for us! \

GM made so many cars that totally disappeared from the roads almost as soon as production of them stopped. It is amazing this van did not dissolve like cotton candy in the rain like the rest of their failures.

The body panels were plastic, and adhesived to a space frame... similar to the Pontiac Fiero. The Dustbuster had HORRENDOUSLY BAD NHTSA crash ratings. It folded and deformed like a beer can.....

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!
