    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.

      4. The Flags that Flew

      5. The Kombinator

        review my 1999 Daewoo Matiz already. Only one in North America. I also have a Hyundai Pony.

    2. Mike Hawk

      That’s a lumina van

    3. Bobby Ledford

      Tesla: the cyber truck design has never been done before!!! Oldsmobile silhouette: Am I a joke to you?

    4. Bace

      I remember the Olds Silhouette well for the reason that you could not buy one in Canada.

    5. TheKnightda8

      I learned to drive on a 1993 Pontiac transport.

    6. Michael Nguyen

      Legend said Oldsmobile Silhouette designed was built with Doug in mind.

    7. Randy Kumpf

      If the front doors had frameless windows... they would still be making this car!

    8. Randy Kumpf

      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!

      Volvo XC90 also has a build in child seat as an option

    11. jooger69

      There are no integrated child seats anymore because they are death traps.

    12. jooger69

      Well it's the Cadillac of Minivans.


      Looks like ice shaver to me 🤣😂!

    14. Country Boy 85

      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

    15. Chris Mifsud

      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.

    16. Snicket

      Rare? These things are everywhere . They even of a section of the salvage yard by my house solely dedicated to them.

    17. JD RS

      Wow, I guess the owner really loves his Oldsmobile Lumina van. Everything seems to work, and it’s in garage tip top shape.

    19. Stephen B

      Damn bro, running out of cars?

    20. Gargenville

      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.

    21. Yung A

      Please review more old cars !

    22. Journey awaits

      This is still a masterpiece in exterior design compared to the Toyota Previa (ew)

    23. James Holbrook

      Most doors have a point there I mean generally it's a 90° corner instead of a what like 80° maybe 75°

    24. James Holbrook

      Is that rare I remember having a friend that had 1 I think 2 probably like 10, 12 years ago

      1. James Holbrook

        I think think his had a fob because I don't remember the door doing all that

    25. Scottie Johnson

      I had one. I was glad when I got rid of it!

    26. ArizonaDanJones

      Nice shirt 👌

    27. Jackpot Winner Ken

      Doug's wife: Hunny how do I look Doug: Stylish and luxurious back in 1990's Also Doug: Quite unattractive to modern standards.

    28. N F95

      3:08 !!! It was right there! How did you miss it Doug?! It’s the Perfect Silhouette of the Silhouette!

    29. Steve Cedrone

      The 2.8L engines in these went on forever, although they leaked oil. One of the few things GM did right in-terms of reliability.

    30. Noah F-Bomb

      RIP Kobe Bryant 💔

    31. user9000

      I can't stop laughing watching this!!!!!!!

    32. Armada Gaming

      This van should’ve been in breaking bad.

    33. Joseph

      STFU you drama Queen


      Biggest windshield ever!!!!!!

    35. iStunZz

      You soud really anoying.

    36. Smashfox

      That's what Doug would look like if he was a vehicle

    37. RajahHindustani

      Doug is doing all old cars, dude do a U-Haul truck!! Or like a 1995 Corolla Toyota

      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.

      Previa copy

    41. salvaje20

      We had a 1990. Phat ride

    42. Caio Barros

      I remember when the Silouette looked very futuristic when it came out.

    43. KayJ Gamespell

      Christ.... 20:28 Look at the two cars on the top right. They were offering those in 1996. What was wrong with gm...

    44. AngryHazen

      In some new short school buses they have built in child seats just like those. They live on!

    45. Boom tendo

      very futuristic design

    46. Decathect Gt

      13:04 no parking

    47. Erman Ozen

      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.

    48. DroopyHussle

      If I ever buy a mini van ima go look for one of this just to take that seat out to put it in my mini van for my child lol

    49. Daniel Bravo Betelu

      Doug: the europeans MPV VW Sharan/Seat Alhambra/Ford Galaxy had this kind of child's integrated seat, in their first generation. I had one and this kind of integrated seat is great.

    50. king jafu

      This is past future

    51. Kei The Reaper

      Me:Mom,can I have Alphard? Mom:We already have Alphard at home Alphard at home:

    52. Dave Kenney

      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

    53. Patrick Carmona

      Theres one sitting in my yard 😂😂😂 lmao

    54. Gordanovich02

      It's like someone described a Renault Espace over the phone and the built it.

    56. Nick Bruni

      Ah I remember 6:20 from the early '00s Pontiac Montana I car pooled to grade school in 😌

    57. Cody Flatt

      I had two and loved them both.

    58. Alt Account

      This is actually my first car at the moment! My parents had this minivan, and when they got another car the Silhouette was and still is my daily driver. Never thought an old hand me down minivan would be rare, or of any interest to Doug for that matter.

    59. Brian W

      Carmakers don’t install child-seats into the their vehicles anymore because regulations change every 3 months...

    60. Dev-Deh_13

      14:39 That storage area is for the owners manual iirc.
