2003 GMC Safari 34,000 mi,
I've had several distributor problems with the vehicle. The first time it was misfiring, and they said there had been a fire in the distributor. Second time: same thing @ 54,000 miles. This time it fried all of my charging jacks (cigarette lighter type). Replaced again under warranty....but they didn't fix my lighter/chargers.
