My Astro has been a great vehicle.
Other than the idler arms needing
replacement at 50k miles (typical for
that vehicle), the only major repair
was an alternator at 80k. With 105k on
it now and no rust, it still looks and
drives wonderfully. I've had the carpet
covered since it was new so you'd never
know this van was 10 years old.
Drives smoothly down the road and
handles very well for a somewhat larger
minivan. The body style has not become
too outdated and you still see a lot of
this style on the road. Very dependable!
Cup holders by the dash are poorly
designed. The dash overhangs the area
and only small drink cups/cans will
fit. They're also not deep enough.
During a quick turn, they can tip out.
Door panel may come loose from being
parked in the sun and vinyl shrinks.
