11 year old Astro van w/ 135k miles

Vehicle

1996 Chevrolet Astro 3dr Minivan

Review

My friend gave this van to me 12 months ago, it had to be towed 3 times and it took about $900+ of repairs to keep it running. Ignition coil burned out = $280 repair. Spark plug wire shorted out = $190 repair. Fuel pump failed = $420 repair. Any repairs under the hood will be high labor due to the design that makes it difficult to access (via panel between passenger and driver leg area. The passenger exterior door handle broke off. When it runs, the 4.0L engine is moderately powerful. At 11 years old and 135k miles, repairs should be expected. I am selling the van, ASAP. I am much more satisfied with my Ford Excursion with 7.3L turbo diesel, which can also seat 8.

Favorite Features

The seats are comfortable. Vehicle handles well for a mini-van.

Suggested Improvements

What can I say, it is GM quality. I prefer Ford quality, especially with SUV and trucks on Super Duty platform.
