This van has been really reliable. Ours is a SLE model we bought new. Have done the routine receommend maintenance and only had to replace things that have worn out, radiator, brake master cylinder, battery, hatch struts. The enegine heeded to have the intake manifold gaskets replaced at 190K miles. Been using 100% synthetic oil since 100K miles. Now has 198K miles. Fuel economy has been consistant at 16-17 city and 18-19 hwy, not the greatest, but considering the other large vehicles that would replace it, we have been no worse for the wear. The seats are comfortable. It holds up to eight persons. Drives nice on long trips. We ahve gone across the country in it two times, with our family of five and related luggage. There are interior power outlets in front and rear.

i have one now with 274,000 miles on it. at times with the miles it does road walk slightly. never get one unless it has rear air. you can't keep it cool enough without one. the review that other minivans get better mileage is not true. ours gets 19-20 mpg and our inlaws who have a chrysler get 17-18 mpg. and thats with us who drive faster and have more miles. the optional 25 gallon tank is nice. few have the rear heater which is desirable in cool climate because the back passengers have difficult time staying warm when below 40 degrees. make sure yours has arm rests on the front seats ours does not and we regret it. the two bench seats allow you to seat 8 people and no other van does that. the engine is very reliable but you do have to keep the vehicle maintained. parts are reasonable because it is general motors. very heavy trailers more than 2000 pounds it doesn't do well mainly in mpgs because the mpgs drop to 10 mpgs. overall i would buy it again and are considering it for my next purchase.

This is the 2nd Safari I've owned. Never had major issues although I've had to buy 3 altenators for it in 4 years.

It's a MAN's Van

"The van is awesome. I love it. its comfortable, you are seated high � but my wife doesn't like its boxy back end and the fact that it doesn't have 2 sliding doors instead of one, and that the seats will not give you access to the third row seat, or parking sensors. I don't really care about that too much but that wouldn't hurt having that available in the van to make the ladies happy .. well except the boxy back .. it still needs to look like the Man's Van. She did own a 2004 Mercury Monterey. she wishes all the features were available in mine. since I love my wife, I didn't give the Van all 5 stars. you did not make my wife happy
