1996 Chevrolet Astro LS 3dr Minivan

Review

Although we had read pretty bad reviews
about the Astro in Consumer Reports, we
have had great luck with ours. We
didn't have many options in choosing a
minivan since we needed something that
could tow our boat, and the Astro is
the only one other than GMC Safari that
can handle it. We have a number of
repairs, two of them pricey, but the
extended warranty we bought at Carmax
covered everything. Overall, this has
been a great van for our family of 4
kids with room to spare for friends to
come along. We found ours to be worth
the price. If anything, the low CR
rating makes a used Astro very
affordable.

Best Features

8 passenger seating is a huge bonus -- not many minivans can seat more than 7. Also, the towing capacity is great since it allows us to tow our boat or borrow our friend's camper.

Worst Features

Rear (3rd) seat legroom is a little tight. This wasn't a problem when our kids were smaller, but as they are hitting the teen years, it's a little cramped (but extremely spacious compared to any SUV with a 3rd seat!)
