Loved it, hated to get

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Astro 3dr Minivan AWD

We have put more trips and miles into this van than any other we've ever owned. Being a travel hockey family whose player is a goalie, this van has held all four of us and on more than one occaision three additional players, all our gear and clothes. Fantastic room. It has performed equally well in summer travel as well as traveling the snow storms and rain in the upper midwest. We never felt that we had to pull over and sit a night somewhere due to a winter storm. If you are looking for a quality used vehicle - this it!

Have had hardly any trouble with this van. Rides nice, if you like the truck ride, which I do. Only thing that has been a hassle is the rear door hydraulics last about 1 year only. I was having trouble with the wipers, but that was fixed through a recall.

This is a dependable rugged van. The AWD makes all the difference. Moves through snow and slippery roads with ease. Sitting high makes visability great. Pulled my 2000 pound boat like it wasn't there.
