1995 GMC Safari SLX 4.3 V6 from North America
Great family hauler
Power steering leak - repaired under extended warranty (recommended).
Sliding door sticks.
If you live in the snow belt, buy this van - not one of those whimpy minivans. AWD is awesome in the snow with no thought or effort - always there.
Better value than an SUV - more bang for the buck and truly hauls 8 adults with reasonable comfort. Tows 5000 lbs and doesn't get much worse gas mileage than other 'minivans' (This is a minivan, the others are just fat cars).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm looking at buying a 1995 Safari from a friend. It seems like it has been a great vehicle for her over the past 3 years. Your review has hit on a lot of qualities I noticed when I took it for a test drive. What it misses in slickness, it more than makes up for in power and usefulness. This is the kind of van that that guy who never saw that movie, You've Got Mail, would drive. I have not seen that movie either.
