2000 Chevrolet Astro Cargo Minivan 3dr Minivan


Review

I bought this van with 150k on it. It is about to flip 200k. The original motor/transmission/rear end are functioning flawlessly. I think it is interesting that it is rated to tow 3500 lbs and most front wheel drive van are rated at 1,000-1,500. Just goes to show you that rear wheel drive is a stronger design.-my neighbor has a courier service with a 1999 astro van that had 400k when he sold it. The new owner drove it home.


Best Features

Review

This is one hell of a van. Aside from the known transmission PCV valve problems (which can be fixed more permanently by using an aftermarket valve), this has to be the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. Incredibly well designed. Engine is very powerful, more so than any other van I've driven in its class. Unfortunately, Chevy discontinued the Astro as of 2006 so '05 is the last model year you will find. This is the ultimate small work van. Note that the standard roof rack solutions max out at 44" widths so if you need a 48" wide rack, you'll have to come up with a custom mounting solution for your wide rack.


Best Features

Mounts for Adrian Steel partition/shelves are already in place (takes 1/4-20 bolts). Custom cargo organization hardware is available from a number of manufacturers.


Worst Features

GMC/Chevy has to redesign this transmission's PCV valve. It fails on a regular basis, and they know it. They cannot afford to recall all the vehicles with these transmissions, so they make us pay for their mistake. A higher-flow exhaust would improve horsepower and MPG. Driver needs more leg room.

2000 Chevrolet Astro Cargo Minivan 3dr Minivan AWD


Review

I've used my '00 AWD Astro Cargo van for work; where I frequently travel many miles on and off road. The AWD system works well when going up steep dirt hills, and has good poor weather traction. The van is easy to manuver in parking lots, and has nice passing and acceleration power.


Best Features

Peppy 190 HP engine, grippy AWD system, plenty of small utility room.


Worst Features

Better seats (lumbar and cushioning), improve gas mileage (13-15 city/18 hwy), smoother shifting automatic transmission, skid plates for off road driving.
