1985 GMC Safari Questions & Answers

  • What can I tow in a GMC? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Safari towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system.

About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed.
