This van has been great for our family since we got it in 1994. Even though it only has barely over 70,000 miles, it is great! We have had very few problems with it. The only problem I can recall is with the brakes. Something kept busting in them, and now I think the problem is coming back. But other than that, everything is great. The front and rear A/C works great!
I would say everything! Especially the way it holds a lot of people and cargo. It's just a great van!
I would say that Chevy could make better quality brakes. But that's about it.. I've been very happy with it!
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 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
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
I have loved this van. However, at
about 100,000 miles I began to have
electrical problems i.e. turn signal
may or may not work, stalled for no
reason and would not restart and the
fan goes on and off - not fun in hot
weather. It only has 125,000 on it
and I am going to sell it. I thought
I would get about 150,000 to 175,000
out of it.
Love the height of the van-you can see
everything. Driver seat area good.
When the fan worked, AC was good for
front and the back (dual air)
Definitely leg room front passenger -
none at all. Bad for long trips.
