1994 GMC SafariReview

It's Big. Good For Hauling, But Awful On Mileage. — 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 bad gas mileage, but it doesn't take much to keep it running. The best part of this vehicle, other than sitting way up, is the durability. Once someone ran into me head on and crumpled their front end. My van didn't even get a ding. I took it down two tracks and even jumped some hills with it. If your engine lasts, you won't be able to break this thing.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It's a tank. Scares little, old lady drivers away. Structurally invincible

Cons: Ugly, bad on gas, did I mention ugly?
