Bought new in 1996, first major
problems began after 40K (after weak
warranty) and put well over $2k in it
by 54k miles. Over the years, it
faired OK but broke down at the worst
times, and cost plenty each time.
Thank God for AAA. From 100k -111K
miles, I just put over $6,300 bucks
into it, you name it, engine work
galore, trans, etc. Too bad for the
poor quality in the mechanical aspect,
it has great functionality.
Perfect size, mid-size van, better than
typical small minivans, not obscenely
large like full-size vans. I have a
conversion Astro, which was loaded with
good stuff, too.
Should have been free of such expensive
problems since it has been around since
1985. They should consider dual
sliders, but I still would never buy an
Astro van again.
