Crash Test 1997 - 2005 Pontiac Transport / Montana , 1997 - 2005 Chevrolet Venture , 1997 - 2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette (Frontal Impact) IIHS "Narration"
Pontiac Trans Sport/Montana 1997-2005 models results also apply to: 1997-2005 Chevrolet Venture | 1997-2004 Oldsmobile Silhouette FRONTAL OFFSET TEST OVERALL EVALUATION: Poor Structure/safety cage Injury measures Restraints/dummy kinematics Head/neck Chest Leg/foot, left Leg/foot, right Poor Poor Good Poor Poor Marginal Important: Frontal crash test ratings can be compared only among vehicles of similar weight. Test details: The Pontiac Trans Sport (renamed Montana in 1999), the Chevrolet Venture, and the Oldsmobile Silhouette were redesigned for the 1997 model year. The Silhouette was dropped after the 2004 model year, and a limited number of Pontiac Montanas and Chevrolet Ventures were manufactured for the 2005 model year. Restraints/dummy kinematics — Dummy movement wasn't well controlled. After moving forward into the airbag, the dummy's head and neck were snapped rearward as the steering wheel intruded. Then the dummy's head was hit from behind by the seatback and head restraint as they tilted forward because of floor buckling. The seat continued moving forward and pushed down on top of the dummy's head, bending its neck back even farther. Injury measures — Measures taken from the chest indicate low risk of injuries to this body region in a crash of this severity. Forces on the neck indicate that injuries to the neck would be likely. Forces on both tibias indicate that injuries to the lower legs would be likely. The forces on the left lower leg were so high that the dummy's metal foot broke off from its leg at the ankle.
