1995 Chevrolet Astro CL 3dr Minivan


Review

This has been the 'family truckster' for the past 10 years and 90K miles, and has pulled a camper 1/2 across the country, and has hauled the family on many long (13 hour drive) trips. Only let us down twice - once for a fuel pump (managed to get it going, no tow needed) and once with a cooling system blowout. Now, at 200K miles, it's got headgasket problems (maybe it's had those for a while now) ready to retire it.


Favorite Features

Lots of room for long trips, reasonable power for the highway, even when pulling a camper with 8 people, topper full of stuff, etc. Rear AC was great while it worked. rear heater. Pretty reliable, needed little major maintenance.


Suggested Improvements

Legroom for front passenger; handling bad - especially on slippery roads - feels like you're riding in a sailboat if a truck passes. Engine repairs / maintenance access is horrible! Need better power window motors. Needs better door hinges /mechanism.

Review

I can't say enough about how good this van has been for me. It has an engine that is snappier than V-8s,when it's only a V-6. At 16-18 mpg it's not very economical, but very good for a van and excellent for the performance it delivers. It has hauled kids, motorcycles, lumber, brush, furniture, rocks and has always, always handled the load with competence, and cleaned up very well afterward. The rear bench seats can be removed in under 3 minutes bu 1 person, leaving enough floor space for an 4x8 sheet of plywood, and using the between-the- seat space I've gotten 11.5-foot things in there. If you can handle the mpg, get this van!


Favorite Features

Snappy, friendly engine. Ease of maintenance. Little need for repairs with regular ordinary maintenance (oil/air changes, etc.).

Review

We purchased this van when our family outgrew our Geo Metro. It has served us well for four years with two and three children under age 5. We have driven it on vaction for over 1000 up to 3000 miles, once a year, with no problems.It has been realativelyeasy to work on for me. I changed the water pump and spark plugs with little mechanical experience and found changing my own oil a simple task. This van has taken it's licks from three wrecks, one slightly major. It protected my young family and after repairs has continued on with only pour repair complaints. I recomend this van for families


Favorite Features

dependable and servicable.


Suggested Improvements

leg room and cup holders

Review

I bought this van to have to move stuff and just have a bigger vehicle. The power and ability of a truck with the versatility of a cargo van AND a passenger van. VERY nice. Helping friends move, anything's possible with this van. Gas mileage is excellent for a V6, especially a van. 19mpg in the city! Never had a reliability problem. The only problem has been flinging a center cap off my rally wheel today. =) Fun to drive, and it's a van!


Favorite Features

Power, reliability, versatility, gas mileage, simple yet nice styling.


Suggested Improvements

More (and bigger) cup holders.
