Review of the 2004 GMC Safari

  • Other than its ability to mimic a SUV in terms of towing ability and cargo space, there's not much about the Safari van that makes it a viable choice over its numerous competitors.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Standard eight-passenger seating, 5,400-pound trailer rating, torquey V6.

  • Cons

    Poor fuel economy, intrusive engine cover makes for small footwells, overall lack of refinement.

  • What's New for 2004

    An Argent grille is now standard on the base model.

No it's not sexy or sporty but this is a great vehicle for anyone that plans to put a lot of miles on it. The ride on rough roads is a little truck-like - not punishing, mind you, but not as good as car based minivans. Highway ride is very good though. My wife shows dogs and a standard mini-van was too small and she didn't want a full size van. She has found the Safari to be just right. Have over 150,000 miles on our first one with virtually no problems - most reliable vehicle we've ever had (yes, we had a Toyota and a Nissan...not bad vehicles but not Nirvana either). One additional note, the Safari gets surprisingly good mileage.
