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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

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.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's a van, need more be said?

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

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.

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.
