The Astro has been a good family van.
It is big, boxie, and rides like a
truck but that is a trade off that is
OK with us. We feel safe, have a good
view from all of the seats, and have
plenty of room for the kids. Have only
replaced the alternator and battery.
Make sure the doors are closed, with
all the interior lights it does not
take long to run the battery down.
This is more like a truck than a car,
but is holding-up better than the
smaller mini-vans. We have 60+k after
five years and plan on it lasting
another five years well past 100k.
Every seat is comfy. Good A/C. Sitting
up high is a great plus. Rear wheel
Time for a new exterior design, with
better gas mileage(15-19), but keep the
rear wheel drive.
