1995 GMC Safari SLT 3dr Minivan


Review

If you'll look, I wrote a review
07/12/02 on this same vehicle. Now
passing into the 260K mileage range, I
just wanted to again say that GMC makes
one reliable ride. In fact, since then
we've added to (not replaced) our GMC
family with a Suburban that after the
first 25K seems to be as solid as the
Safari that I still drive every single
day. 260K: no oil usage, no loss of
power, good looking. I can't say
enough good things about the GMC Safari.


Best Features

Reliability.


Worst Features

Front passenger leg room a little short if I have to suggest anything.

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.
