If you want to carry six people with
AWD this is the ticket. This is the
second Safari we've owned. While the
interior could use some work such as
larger front leg room, driver side
passenger doors and a few more
cupholders, the overall functionality
of the van is excellent. The larger
size more than makes up for these
shortcomings. It is great for long
(800 mile) road trips with 4 kids. Not
only that, it can carry all the gear.
The AWD works great in snow and the 4.3
L V-6 has sufficient power. We've had
no major mechanical problems with this
van or its predecessor. However, there
have been some interior trim issues.
Better size that "mini" vans.
More front legroom.
Driver side passenger door.
