1996 Chevrolet Astro 3dr Minivan

Review

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.

Best Features

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.

Worst Features

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.
