05 safari

by VanPro from Bemidji, MN | December 10, 2010

Lousy vehicle, handles terrible on ice even in AWD. It has 120,000 miles on it and the engine rattles like a bunch of marbles in a coffee can. Vehicle is obviously not built to last.

Most Room of any Mini-van

by I like Room from Wheaton, MD | October 31, 2007

We've owned an Astro or Safari for 14 years. Used as a 'family' hauler seating up to 8 comfortably. With the 2nd and 3rd row out the vehicle becomes a mini-hauler. Has the power to tow up to 6,500 pounds from a V6 motor without strain.

Good vehicle for what I use it for.

by Arthur from Allentown, PA | October 24, 2006

My wife and I own a residential cleaning business. We have three Safari's in our business. They haul a crew of 4 and all of the equipment they need for the day. Two of them are AWD. The old one is not but I'm replacing that one with a 2005 Safari AWD in spring 2007. You can pick them up pretty cheap due to low resale value. I can usually get a dealer down by about $1,500 to $1,800. from their price without a trade in. I would never have bought a new one as there are too many repairs to warrant GM's price when they were new. Power window motors and switches, mirror switches, door handles inside and outside go bad way too often. That's O.K. if you can replace them yourself, which is very easy, and you can buy the van cheap enough. For hauling you can't beat them and with normal maintenence the engines run forever.
