1992 GMC Safari Minivan SLT 3dr Ext Minivan


Review

Generally nice - but: there was a
secret GMC warranty on the
paint which literally flake off after
six years. GM denied responsibility
claiming their secret warranty had
expired and if the dealer didn't tell
the customer (me) - too bad! The
upshot - had to have the vehicle
painted privately at my expense and now
have EXTENSIVE RUST - something else
that should never happen in this era of
vehicle. Mechanically the vehicle has
been fair, the rear A/C is a disaster -
be sure to close off the coolant lines
to the rear A/C - the rear A/C is not
needed and you will otherwise have to
add new freon EVERY Summer.


Best Features

Good engine, nice interior.


Worst Features

Inmprove vehicle stability - the non- AWD is rather unstable and tends to wander around even on dry pavement and is positively dangerous on wet or icy surfaces.

Review

Vehicle was about 14 months old w/43000
miles when we bought it. Held up ok for
about 18 mon. It's been an albatross
ever since. It's 10 yrs old & still no
rust, but thats the least of our
problems...2 engines, 2 trannies, 2
complete A/C systems (front & back),
and a myriad of other costly repairs.
To make a long story short, about 6
mons after we bought it, Consumer
Reports Used Car Buying Guide had this
vehicle @ the top of their list of
VEHICLES TO AVOID - They were
right!

PS: The engine is a REAL pain to
work on.


Best Features

Great cargo capcity (kids or otherwise); Great 360 degree visibity/ no blind spots


Worst Features

Buy something else
