They're one and the same, just have different names on them. They come
off the same assembly line.
I would rather be exposed to the inconveninces attending too much
liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

Same vehicle. Both have some of the worst Consumer Reports reliability
records you will see. The one a friend of mine owns has had more trouble in
it's 60k miles of life than a car should have.
Also, the engine intrusion into the passenger side foot area makes it very
uncomfortable for long drives.
There are many better minivans on the road.
My uncle has a 2000 Safari and a few years ago we were upnorth for deer
hunting, the trip up there wasn't a problem. The next day the rest of the
people at the house were going to go shopping and take the van. They tried
firing it up, no go. My uncle came back and tried (he's a GM certified
mechanic and a damn good one at that) wouldn't start. It ended up being
towed to a dealership and it was there for ~1 week after we went back (it's
around a 180 mile trip). I think it was something with the fuel injectors.

I've had to replace the normal "expendables" -- water pump, alternator, and
a/c compressor, but as far as major work is concerned the only thing was a
tranny rebuild at the 200k mark.
