bought a 2000.early fluid problems
and 57000 miles trans failed. the
electronic trans has serious flaws.
light weak parts destined to fail. the
sun and 1870 code /lose reverse/
valves wear out. had tranny problems
under warrannty and got the gm run
around . the typical ,could not
duplicate problem so they didn't fix
nothing. now I sit with a $2000 +
repair bill. lots of gm vechiles have
this tranny. I am tireing of gm's we
have no problems additude, and as long
as they get past the 36,000 mile
warranty. they don't give a hoot the
price of these vechicles they should
LAST A LOT LONGER. john q public is
getting ripped off.
like the automatic all wheel drive and
the interior functionality for haulin
people and your stuff. they need to
get there mechanical @##*^^ together
come clean with major mechanical
problems that are occurring. offer
longer standard drivetrain warranty.
Bought New as leftover, had minor
electrical problems, rides nice and
has lots of torque. Towing is a
breeze. Air conditioner not as cold
as I like. A sled on Ice, Snow or
heavy rain. Hauls a lot easily.
Happy with vehicle so far. Like all
GM's I've owned are put together a
little sloppy. Engine & Tranny
Ride, driving position. Towing.
Colder air, more attention to detail.
mileage will kill you if you live in
the country as i do.just a trip to
publix cost you.don't know if the rest
are as bad but,14 city and 18 hwy
stinks.as the pontiac dealers were
telling me they were easily getting 21
hwy.live and learn.i'm going to hyundai
to check out the santa fe
I have a '90 Chevy Astro van, so I
thought a 2000 Safari would be better.
Not so. Had transmissions at 8500 mi.
and at 22000 mi. A/C compressor has
been replaced at 5000 mi. Engine has a
random stumble and sometimes dies, but
dealer cannot duplicate and repair.
The exhaust tone in the rear of the van
is obnoxious. I also find the
drivability of the drive train less
than it should be.
Good size van, will carry a lot and
pull our camper.
This could be a great van, but serious
problems need to be addressed.
Good gas miliage compaired to ford
a lot more room.
Can tow a trailer with it even though
the ford had the 3.8 liter v6
prior to this we had a Contour that got
about fourteen miles to the gallon so
twenty seems great.
the air conditioning much better than
Fourth sliding door with running boards
my three year old has trouble getting in
