Very dependable van! Motor and transmission strong no problems. We have driven this van to California, Colorado and Missouri with no problems. Would drive it anywhere. Only flaws I would say would be the lack of front passenger leg room and door handles (have 2 Astro's and replaced handles on both of them) Our one van has 186000 miles on it and still runs great! Highly recommend this vehicle!
Dependability, low maintenance, and seat comfort.
More front leg room. Easier access to the back bench seat.
The Astro van has been a great vehicle
for our family. I would highly
recommend it for anyone with children.
Our current van has taken us just over
205,000 miles in 9 years. It has
finally served its usefulness and we
are shopping for our second Astro van.
Our primary issues had been with the
rear A/C malfunctioning twice & had to
be replaced twice (the extended
warranty paid for itself). It has been
exceptionally reliable for us through
the years. Thank you, Chevrolet.
It is hot where we live so front and
rear A/C has been a great feature.
Load capacity for the family. Seating
From what I have seen, many
improvements have been made since we
bought our Astro van.
We bought this with 46000 miles.
Conversion by Choo Choo. Excellent
dealer. Car is smooth and quiet and
relatively dependable. Disappointed
that the trans went at 140000 as GM's
are supposed to be the best. (never had
a trans go bad until we were required
to change fluids) Great on tires and
Sliding door a great improvement over
our old Ford van. 20 MPG. A/c works
great. Conversion must have made it
really quiet.Still believe speedometer
is wrong it is so smooth.
Drivers side, men's legs in contact
door hardware. Couldn't change plugs on
left side. Shop had to jack up engine
to replace. Cowling is difficult to
remove. Passenger cpmpartment not
designed for longterm riders, minimal
floor space and heat more intense from
I've had my van for 4 years and it was purchased with 52,000 miles. My Astro is a very dependable. In the 4 years I have had $150.00 in repairs and the engine has only dropped 1% in compression power from the original power. I have 103,034 miles and I look forward to another 103,000 miles
Big - Comfortable - Easy to handle - Wife feels comfortable in driving it!!!
Good interior arrangement
Removeable seats - Hauling space good
Make the engine more accesiable from the from of the unit. If cowling is requirement to work on back of engine (self install plug,etc., make it eaiser and simple.
