1994 Chevrolet Astro LT 3dr Ext Minivan


Review

I bought my Astro LT Wagon new, and have accumulated over 133,000 miles to date. No engine or transmission troubles, no air conditioning problems, only a power window motor and wiper relay have failed in service. This is a great work record, for a reliable and strong van. Plenty of 4.3 V-6 Power for any driving condition too!


Best Features

Strong power, reliable, plenty of family traveling room, great airconditioning and heat.


Worst Features

Power window and door lock switches are awkward to reach.

Review

Absolutely no leg room for the front seat passanger. The wipers had several problems mostly stemming from cold solder joints on the control board.(this is a $45 fix from the dealer if you change it yourself) The AC fan switch is under-rated for the blower and burns out often. There is also a check valve for the AC system that plugs up about as often and causes the AC to blow out the heater vent when accelerating or driving above 55 MPH. I have also found out that the front seats do not provide enough back and shoulder support on long trips and there is a sharp edge under the front seat foam that will eventually cut a hole in the driver and front passanger seats.


Best Features

large size and 8 passanger seating in the CS series. Fold down mid and rear seats.


Worst Features

some adult leg room for the front passanger, a beefed up AC switch and a redesign of the AC system so that it doesn't blow through the heater at 55MPH. Better soldering job on the wiper control module.

Review

I've had mine for about 70,000 miles now and only had a couple of significant problems: idler arms, and fuel injection needed repair. Neither left us stranded. It's got lots of room and from what I've seen, they'll run forever. Get a tranny cooler if you tow, or live in a hot climate.


Best Features

Room, seats 8 Tough engine and tranny


Worst Features

better fuel injection came in 2002 better rear springs in 1996 They've fixed most of the problems!

Review

This Van has never left me stranded. I played in a band and used this vehicle to tow 4000lbs of equipment for 40,000 miles. Ive had to replace the AC compressor because of GM's poor quality. The electrical system is now going a little haywire and the plastic AC vents break easy. The rearview mirror falls off every winter. Some of the power locks will not lock.


Best Features

Drive train is awesome and powerfull with the 4.3l Vortec engine. Very dependeable.


Worst Features

Electrical system!! AC Compressors suck. Anything plastic breaks or falls off.
