"This van has been very dependable for me and easy to drive. Air works, PS, PB. Good soccer van for all the kids. 8 passenger and still has room in back for suitcases and "stuff". All my kids are grown so no need for it anymore. Gets about 20 mpg on average. Upholstery is all in pretty good shape,no tears. Some cracking in arm rests but none on dashboard. Power mirrors, auto windows & Dr seat. This van has been my baby. Has headset jacks in back seats. Body & paint is in very good shape with some wear for its age. Same for interior. Always changed oil every 3K miles. have service records. Photos to follow or send email & I will send to you per email."

"Mini type van on a truck chassis. 5,000 lb tow capacity. Seats 8 or remove seats. Great for camping, towing, soccer mom or work truck. Multi functional. Nothing quite like it made since 2005. 4.3 litre 6 cylinder is a classic that has taken past Safari/Astro Vans to 250,000 miles plus."

"bought this vehicle especially for road trips for my grandchildren and I. I love the fact that it had so much room,and the A/C in the back of the van was great, after kids grew up, took my church ladies to a retreat, and they enjoyed the trip so much we used it for the next three retreat trips. Loved my van."

"We used this van on several family vacations, Camping and traveling, Very reliable. With the roof rack we were able to tent camp with this van with 8 persons. It's off road ability were superb. We traveled from the mid-west to both coasts comfortably. Gas mileage was always near 20 even with a full load. We towed a trailer(6x12 box) fully loaded with our kids college move in stuff from Boston to Kansas and S. Carolina to Michigan. Only drawback was the towing mileage went to between 9 - 11. My one complaint was Chevy increased the turning radius from previous models. My 93 Astro could out turn the 03 Safari a lot. I would buy another if they still made this van."
