Best mini van out there

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Astro LT 3dr Minivan AWD

This is our second Astro, but first AWD and we think it is great. I am a professional mechanic, and I have been very impressed by the Astro / Safari vans. If you are in the market for a mini van, the AWD is a vrey good choice.
