1997 Chevrolet Astro 3dr Minivan


Review

This van has held up good, had some tranny trouble, but I knew about that model tranny before we bought it. Have had it since new, and replaced a few things here and there. Rides high, tows great, pull 5,000 lbs easily in the mountains where we live. Drives good in the corn and hay fields too. 220,000 miles and engine runs great, no oil use and no noises.


Best Features

Its a real van, not a wimpy car chassis like the other "minivans". It drives like a truck because it is a truck


Worst Features

Put the 4.2 liter in line 6 from the Trailblazer in it.

1997 Chevrolet Astro 3dr Minivan


Review

It is a very spacious car, with great visibility and high. Don't like at times the high because for short and old people it is kind of difficult to get in. Window motors are not too good, both, driver and passenger brake easily and when you need it the most.


Best Features

Height Space Visibility


Worst Features

Make it run like a car not like a truch. Do not discriminate short or old people, make side steps standards. Wipes and windows motors more reliable. Air Conditioning should be improved, it takes long to cool inside and also the knobs for temperature control, it brakes easily.

Review

Very reliable, lotsa cargo space. Have had it for 5 1/2 years & only major repair has been fuel pump. A couple interior design flaws noted below. No rust, even though driven in sald every winter.


Best Features

Lotsa cargo space. Reliable engine. Front seats are comfortable.


Worst Features

Move the drive's side dash air vents. No matter how they're turned, they blow directly on the driver's hands. More foot room on front passenger side.
