1990 GMC Safari SLX 3dr Minivan


Review

My fiance's family has had this van in
the family since new. He got it from
his parents. We loved that van. It
saved my fiances life 3 weeks efore our
wedding. Three days ago though my
fiance got into a seriouse car wreck. A
cement truck pulled out in front of him
across 2 lanes of traffic while he was
going 45 (55 speed limit on a rainy
day) he couldn't stop in time and the
van colided into the truck. He is alive
and if you looked at the tractor
trailer you woldn't believe it.The
police say that if not for that van he
would be dead. We loved our van and
plan to get another.GMC has my vote for
best cars around!


Best Features

solid steel frame, vortec engine, beefy look, minimum blind spots (unlike my moms 92 Ford Aerostar)the idea that it took so many hits and kept going, inexpensive to fix, everything about it


Worst Features

just keep makng them!

1990 GMC Safari SLE 3dr Minivan


Review

My family has owned this vehicle since
we bought it new in 1989. I recently
took ownership when i got my driver's
license and it is a great vehicle. It
is powerful and great for passing on
the freeway. It is also VERY
reliable. With 91,000 miles on it, the
only problem we've had is the piece of
plastic that holds the dimmer switch in
place. It handles great and is easier
to park than my mom's Pontiac
Bonneville. It has plenty of room for
all my friends. The seats are
comfortable and the air conditioning is
ice cold. Great vehicle that gives me
NO problems.


Best Features

The engine. Its got loads of power for getting on the freeway and passing people.


Worst Features

The power windows are terribly SLOW and the switches are in an awkward position.

Review

I bought this van brand new from the
dealer as a family vehicle.I only drove
it to the grocery, and to take my kids
to school 14K the bucket seat
broke$305.61.At 23K the dist.cap and
rotor had to be replaced $116.90. The
next year 29k the electric door locks
quit working and had to be $45.34.Later
the sliding door came off the
tracks$197.28.The cat.conv. had to be
replaced at 50K ,$569.95. Finally with
57K the engine blew .I asked GMC Corp.
to participate on a portion of the
repair cost but was denied I guess
I can't really blame GMC for not
backing up their product.I wouldn't
stand behind it either.

Review

I bought this van brand new and have
had nothing but trouble with it. The
sit adjuster, door lock switch, and
window assambly broke within the first
three years(non cover by warranty). The
sliding door came off the tracks by
year five. I had to replace the engine
at 57000 miles. GMC has refused to
participate on any of the repairs. I
would never buy another GMC again.
