This van has about 80% highway miles.
There have been no major problems
encountered just nuisance ones. We did
have the left-front ABS fail on a trip
and caused the normal brake system to
fail. The ABS sensor cable to the LF
wheel broke and ONLY the ABS worked.
This was really scary when you hit the
brakes and all you got was the ABS
sound and response. I asked GM about
this and never received an answer. The
BOSE CD system had be to replaced ata
cost of $300. Talking to other Safari
owners it seems the radio/CD unit is to
close to the heating ducts.
AWD, 8 passenger seating and the Dutch
doors The looks are not that bad
A time delayed rear window wiper and
dual side sliding doors.
I have this car for 3 years, I drive it 200 miles a day. With gas prices and car cost, I have put nothing into it, only oil change and brakes. Great buy, $1000 for 3 years of service. I have 250,000 miles on it and not even an oil leak. I love this car
Smooth drive, very comfortable. can carry a lot of weight
Have driven all over the States and Canada never let me down. 450000 km so far. Rocker panels have rusted out. The back door handle has disentigrated. Spark plugs are hard to replace. But fun to drive and I'll drive it into the ground
More room for a tall guy needed in the leg area, tends to waver in strong cross winds. Had both front wheels come off at high speeds but fortuneatly only 600 bucks damage each time and no injuries. Replaced alumunum wheels with steel.
This van is the absolute motherload. With over 202000 miles, it is still tickin away...no rust, mind you. Van driven to Canada, Florida, North Carolina, Connecticut, NYC, New Mexico, Kansas, Texas, and all those in between there. Ever break down?...dont think so. This is precisely why GM sells more cars that Ford and DaimChrysBenz.
We have owned a GMC Safari for seven
years and still love it. My only
complaint is the space for the
passengers feet in the front. The van
is spacious and comfortable. I love
the built in coolers in the back.
Coolers built into the vehicle. Ease
of removing the back bench seat.
