Vehicle2003 Chevrolet Astro Cargo Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewThe van fits my needs for work, no other small cargo style vans available from other manufacturers. The free commercial shelving package was a nice bonus. Interior space rapidly diminished with those shelves, though. This was a nice move from a small pickup truck, my stuff is dry and secure. Absolutely no vehicle problems to date, drives in the snow surprisingly well.
Best FeaturesExterior styling (although I would have liked the aerodynamic headlamps on the Chevy cargo), functional interior, 4 wheel discs (love that hydroboost) and the limited slip differential.
Worst FeaturesFuel economy is really bad. It is rated at 16 city, but I am getting an average of 12 despite my best attempts to baby the truck. The bad fuel economy may force me to reconsider the Dodge Sprinter in a couple of years. A small diesel engine in the Astro would be really nice.
