Pros: "Sturdy, comfortable, safe, convenient cup holders"

"I have had this van for 6 years now, purchased it used. The problems have been alternator, FUEL PUMP, rust around the wheel well, limited foot room in the front seats, access to rear bench is unpleasant, fan speed, ABS, brake lights stay on after repairs, sucks gas, burns up hub assemblies/wheel bearings (I suspect because of the weight of the vehicle, odd response on some occasions with the AWD, parts are expensive-sometimes hard to find-special order, turning radius is LIMITED-needs a lot of room to turn, several blind spots, engine compartment very tight and repairs often require removing the dog house and front seats. What I LIKE, it is a tough vehicle, I slid off the road after hitting a pot hole this icy winter in the country...the van went threw a ditch into a corn field, past a phone pole back threw the ditch and back onto the road without any damage. Oh and my coffee did not spill! That is tough and smooth! The exterior panels are heavy. Things that would ordinarily dent another vehicle have left my van unscratched/undented. The smoked glass is nice for the passengers in the back. The cargo area with rear benches removed is wonderful. We have moved three times and not needed a U-Haul. The rear heat & AC make everyone comfortable especially when you figure out the appropriate balance for all. It seems leaving the front windows just barely open in the summer with ac on circulates and cools the van best. The gauges on the dash are very helpful, they actually read out engine temp, electric, fuel unlike some vehicle that just give failure lights. We have traveled with this van, we have used it around town, and carried people, groceries and a lot of stuff comfortably conveniently and SAFELY. I feel very safe in my van. I have never been broke down on the side of the road and the van is now 12 years old original engine, trans, and drive. I would say this van is good for people who transport people and lots of stuff. Would also be suitable for someone with a small business who need to move things around."

Pros: "Great value for a family vehicle"

Cons: "Gas hog for short hops and under 3 passengers"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Safari is fairly economical, and practical for family use. The AWD makes this vehicle excellent choice for winter in Northern States where there is a lot of snow and ice. It cruises nicely and power train is designed and matched for all types of terrain. The only real drawback to this vehicle is the lack of access to the engine components and lack of room to replace engine components. Even the spark plugs are difficult to replace. The vehicle does have a smooth ride, and is very quiet. The seats are very comfortable, and both rear bench seats can be removed for greater cargo space, But they are very heavy and need two men to move them."
