Silhouette 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette. The contact's vehicle has two rear power sliding doors. The doors are supposed to automatically stop when making contact when anything in the doorwell, without having to press the open/close button. On numerous occasions, her kids have been bruised because the door will continue to close regardless of anything in its path. She believes that there is a sensor that is malfunctioning and feels that her kids could be seriously injured. The current mileage is 60,447 and failure mileage was 45,000.

While holding a child the electric sliding door closed on the child's arm, breaking it. The key remote had to be used to unlock the door. There was also another close case with an older child.

The right rear automatic door will reopen after it was closed. The vehicle had been to the dealer seven times for this problem. The door opened 100 times since last August.
