1995 GMC Safari SLE 3dr Minivan


Review

I bought my 1995 Safari just because I could fit my 10-foot surfboard IN the vehicle AND lock the doors under the seats. For a van, it's pretty peppy. Rear AC and Dutch doors are cool. Middle and rear seats make the cargo space versatile. My girlfriend complained that the shotgun seat has no foot room. I don't drive from there so, it never bothered me. At 80k miles, fuel injection system died. Spendy ($1k), but worth it. At 116k, the tranny died. The $2k to replace it just wasn’t worth it, had to trade it in.


Best Features

Versatility - Leave the middle seat in the garage and fold down the back seat most of the time. Great for road trips - camping, surfing, fishing, etc..


Worst Features

Drink holders that fit at least a McDonald's Medium drink would be good for the front seats - the radio is in the way. The middle and rear seats should un- fold and combine to make a bed in the cargo area but only while the vehicle is in PARK.

Review

This van is my second, I owned a Astro before, its a great driver on long trips and has plenty of towing power for my older Apache trailer. All wheel drive is a real life saver as I do get off the pavement once in awhile and is great on winter roads.


Best Features

Room, towing, all wheel drive and tight sounding ride.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage.

Review

Bought new in January 1996. Have had no major problems. Front brakes have been replaced twice. Plastic door handle on passenger side broke inside the door...major hassle to get to and fix but not a major expense if you have a friend that is a mechanic and has the right tools. Power door lock doesn't always connect with the sliding passenger side door (2 clicks usually will do it when it "misfires"). Just had the fuel pump replaced at 123,000 miles. Van gave plenty of warning...started running rough at about 118,000 miles. Tuned up at 105,000 miles. With 3 kids in sports, this van is great.


Best Features

extended cargo space, rear air


Worst Features

Keep working on the power door lock system. Every GM product I've ever owned with Power locks seems to have issues. Make access to inner door panel easier.

Review

This is my second astro/safari conversion. The only reason they are not being driven is because they were both totalled out in wrecks. Anyways, they were both perfect. TV/VCR for my kids, never had any major problems whatsoever out of these vans. The 4.3 v6 got about 17mpg but NEVER broke down and had plenty of power. I bought the first one with 100k and it had 140k when wrecked, my second one i bought with 70k and wrecked it with 111k. I love these vans!


Best Features

tv/vcr, rear sofa-bed, headroom in the conversion, digital dash (astro), peppy 4.3!


Worst Features

digital dash on all of em, newer styled interior (redone in 96)
