CarComplaints.com Notes: Is the 2001 Safari going to win any beauty pageants? Probably not. But it's reliable, can fit a ton of stuff (and tow a bunch more). Good luck finding a used one with reasonable mileage, however.

problem #2

Jan 102005

Safari 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 71,384 miles


While applying the brake pedal to pull into the driveway, the pedal went to the floor. The consumer had to press the brake pedal several times to get the vehicle to stop. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The mechanic found that two brake lines leading to the right front caliper have rub through one another.
