GMC Safari Recalls
An interference fit between the lower ball joint rubber boot and the steering knuckle may cause the rubber boot to be cut. This would allow entry of water, dirt, salt, or other contaminants, possibly leading to premature wear. Failure from premature wear could lead to separation of the steering knuckle and lower control arm, which would cause the vehicle to drop at the affected corner. Vehicle handling and braking could be compromised, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the steering knuckles. The recall began April 8, 2004. The GM recall number is 03044.
GMC Safari Reviews
My car will not start. Hav e rewired it . still will not start
Bought this van with 197,000. Sometimes the wipers don't work, I use rainx, the left window is slow going up, only if you put it all the way down. At 207,000 it does not use oil, for me it is a perfect van.
I bought this van about the year 2000. Had about 55,000 miles on it I have only replaced the starter and gas pump.and brakes and drums and the minor things like tune ups.This has been a great vehicle. I have put on it 175000 miles.And it still going strong.
