GMC Safari Parts
When it comes to mid-size vans, very few serve their purpose as well as the GMC Safari. Produced from 1985 to 2005, this vehicle was compact enough to easily traverse city traffic and still had enough space to transport anything you could ever need. The Safari was equipped with a 4.3L V6 engine and rear- or all-wheel drive, depending on the versions of the vehicle. Reliable safety systems ensure comfortable driving, making the Safari one of the safest vehicles of its class. Practical and powerful, the GMC Safari is incredibly enjoyable to drive both within city limits and off-road.
Safety and efficiency of the Safari are well-known among drivers, but these traits can suffer because of the dangers that the off-road environment can bring. They can be easily restored, however, with quality and reliable replacement parts that we provide here at CARiD. When ordering GMC Safari parts from us, you can expect nothing but premium quality and great function. It is our job to keep your automobile running at its peak, and we are not going to let you down.

The GMC Safari, also known globally as the Astro, was a multifaceted van manufactured by the General Motors from 1985 to 2005. The van was launched as the automaker's first minivan and was designed to be versatile, offering multiple configurations including a passenger minivan and a cargo van. Using a rear-wheel-drive chassis, the Safari incorporated light-truck powertrain components to optimize cost-effectiveness and improve towing capacity up to 2,500 kg. The engines and transmissions were sourced from the S-10 with options ranging from a 2.5 L four-cylinder producing 98 hp to a 4.3 L V6 delivering 200 hp, depending on the model year. In 1986, throttle body fuel injection (TBI) was introduced for improved performance and fuel efficiency. The van was fitted with a Borg Warner T-5 manual transmission, with all subsequent models from 1993 boasting a 700R4/4l60 automatic transmission. The Safari underwent several changes over the years, including a 1995 facelift with an extended nose and a redesigned dash with a passenger-side airbag in 1996. Despite these upgrades, the van retained its original square sealed beam headlights. Measuring 189.8 inches in length, 75 inches in height, and 77.5 inches in width without mirrors, the GMC Safari offered considerable space. Its fuel economy was rated at 14 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. Over its production span, about 3.2 million units were produced, marking the Safari as a significant model in the history of General Motors.
GMC Safari, a popular van among vendors, caterers, and travel enthusiasts, is not immune to common vehicular issues. Prominent among these is the Dexcool issue, linked with engine problems and reported by Safari drivers typically around the 28,000 miles mark. Symptoms include slow acceleration, overheating, a rough-running engine, unusually loud exhaust, poor fuel economy, and starting difficulties. If the Check Engine Light activates, consider checking components like the spark plug, engine mount, water pump, EGR valve gasket, speedometer, and oil pan. Another frequently reported problem involves the transmission not shifting correctly, often manifesting as transmission slippage and surging, partial power loss, abnormal engine noises when switching gears, difficulty in shifting, and a higher-than-usual engine RPM. Typically, this issue stems from a faulty torque converter, broken shift cable, or malfunctioning oil pressure switch. Additionally, the axle shaft and drive shaft warrant attention due to their vulnerability, while the cabin air filter-essential for venting fresh air into the vehicle-should also be adequately maintained.
Selecting OEM parts provides assurance as they are synonymous with top-notch quality and longevity. They are meticulously engineered to meet the official factory's stringent specifications and undergo rigorous quality control tests during manufacturing, ensuring durability and a perfect fit. Our extensive inventory offers genuine GMC Safari parts at the most competitive prices online. These OEM GMC Safari parts are backed by a manufacturer's warranty. To top it off, our stress-free return policy and expedited delivery services guarantee an excellent shopping experience.

The GMC Safari and its sibling the Chevy Astro are minivans produced by General Motors Co. from '85-05. The Safari had a distinctive advantage over other minivans of the day. The GMC Safari was built on top of a normal truck platform as opposed to a front wheel drive car platform. This gave the Safari the ability to tow up to three tons with proper equipment. The GMC Safari remained mostly unchanged during its 20 year production span. In 2003 a major change was made concerning the chassis of the vehicle. Taking cues from the ½ ton GMC trucks, the Safari was given components for the suspension, larger brakes, and new 16" wheels. The Safari now handled more like the popular GMC Sierra. Unfortunately as the Safari was improving, GMC hit financial troubles and decided to cut vehicles that were slow sellers. In 2005 the final GMC Safari's and Chevy Astro's rolled out of the factories. Classier and more refined than the Chevy Astro, the GMC Safari reigned as one of the more powerful minivans of its day.

Best Places to Shop for Souvenirs in Moscow
Love it or hate it, shopping for souvenirs is an unavoidable part of travelling. Whether you’re a natural born gift-hunter or someone who grabs the first thing on street vendor stalls, it always feels good to bring something back from a trip. So if you’re planning a Moscow vacation any time soon, here are the best places to get memorabilia from Russia’s capital.

Red square market.
Right opposite the entrance side of Teatralnaya metro station, there are rows of colorful tents selling every cliché Russian souvenir in the book. The Red Square may not be the best place to stock up on cheap souvenirs, but if you only have time for a basic Kremlin tour and do not plan on doing serious gift-shopping, this is where you can buy obligatory but terribly overpriced matryoshka dolls and ushankas .
No Moscow tour is complete without taking a leisurely stroll down this beautiful historic street. Located in the very heart of Moscow, the city’s most famous pedestrian avenue offers all kinds of entertainment, from live music performers and tattoo artists, to caricaturists and souvenir shops. Here you’ll find a much wider variety of gifts to take home than at the Red Square market, and at more reasonable prices too.

One of Moscow’s most symbolic attractions, Sparrow Hills is where you can enjoy a panoramic view of the city, see all seven of Stalin’s skyscrapers at once and take a closer look at one of them – the Moscow State University. Tourists can also take a ropeway ride or a boat tour to view the city from different angles. No wonder the place draws crowds and sells millions of souvenirs every year, the prices are decent but the offering will only satisfy those whose ambitions don’t go beyond fridge magnets.
Museum of Moscow
If you’re looking for exquisite Moscow inspired gifts, then you should go straight to the Museum of Moscow. No hideous ushankas and kitschy souvenir plates here: rare books on Moscow history share shelf space with designer stationery and jewellery. Mandatory posters, maps, totes and fridge magnets are also available here, but they are so tasteful, your friends back home will literally fight for them.
If you’re willing to take a metro ride to the east of Moscow, you’ll be rewarded by getting straight into a gift-shopper’s paradise. The biggest and most popular flea market in Moscow sells almost every souvenir imaginable: from Soviet antiques, to paintings to Asian rugs. The further you go in, the lower the prices and the more likely you are to get great deals.
