Pros

Great for family vacations - The longest trip we ever took was Atlanta to 200 miles north of Toronto. Now it has 90K miles. Almost no repairs. Favorite feature: Can turn 3rd row seat into bed.

Cons

A little heavy as compared to minivans.

A- Overall Very Happy — CONVERSION VAN. Excellent for family travel. In spite of what many others say, we never had any major repairs in last 9 years. The only repair was the actuator(?) on driver door stopped working and couldn't up/down the powered window glass. Had to be replaced for $72.

Pros

It's a van, need more be said?

Cons

Slow, bulky, after 100k miles, needs heavy repairs.

Good For The Family, Brand-new Off The Lot, After Awhile, Need To Trade In. — It's a van, has a 4.3 L V6, pulls the boat and camper just fine. I might get it when I go off to college/NAVY. Can remove the two bench seats for cargo. Got it in 04, w/ 40k and we put 50k on it, hard miles mostly.

Pros

Very well-equipped, powerful engine and large towing capacity, very solid vehicle. It actually had a gorgeous paintjob when it was new, but being a family vehicle took its toll.

Cons

Glaval sucks at making conversion vans, A/C never worked properly, could not fit in some parking garages and drive-thrus due to the high-top.

Bleh — We bought a 2000 GMC Safari conversion van brand new from Hall Pontiac-GMC in Virginia Beach. It was blue with gold pinstriping and a tan cloth interior. For the most part, it was reliable, the engine and other mechanical parts were dependable, but almost from the start, we had problems with the air-conditioning. In 2002, the A/C quit during a rare heat wave in Washington state when we were livng there. There were also numerous electrical gremlins and problems with the brakes. The TV in the back stopped working in 2003, on a seven hour drive! The van itself was a great vehicle. Very reliable and solid, but the conversion company, Glaval, did a lousy job. No surprise they are now out of business.

It's Big. Good For Hauling, But Awful On Mileage. By Winks

This van does not have the prettiest design in the world. It takes forever to pick up speed and shakes above 60. The brake-lines are all connected and seem to fail more than they should. It's got ba... Read More
