"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."
"Bought this one-owner SLE used with 75K miles. Super clean and well equipped added new tires, shocks, K&N air filter, and did a complete clean inside and out.... EXTREMEMLY HAPPY . LOOKS LIKE AND DRIVES LIKE NEW."
"Have owned since 2002 and have driven it regularly until the last 3 years. I put away my convertible in the winter and drive this AWD Beast in the winter. I can go anywhere and snow does not stop me in the harsh Indiana winters. The engine is still strong after 120K and does not burn oil."
"Great van and is very dependable this was a company van and only used during the summer months, everything works great on it. Oil changes and all maintance was kept up and oil changed every 3000 miles, tires on it bought just last year so they are pretty much new. The van was bought new buy the company owner I am the second owner."
Pros: "With regular maintenance it was very reliable."
Cons: "The front cupholders were too shallow."

"I used it mostly as a daily driver but we also drove it on vacations to Chicago, Jacksonville, Fl and as far as Texas. We never had any problems while on the road. It drove great. The gas mileage wasn't the greatest but not terrible. What a tough vehicle. I just wish I had bought it new to enjoy it longer."
