1997 Chevrolet Astro LT 3dr Minivan
Review
This van is a truck, not a car, and has the good and bad points of a truck. As a box on wheels, it is great. It hauls lots of people or stuff and tows a heavy trailer. It is nimble in parking lots and comfortable on the highway. It gets 20 mpg at interstate speeds. It is roomy when compared to other minivans and "big" vehicles like Suburbans. I have put 141,000 miles on my 1986 Astro and 147,000 on my 1997. Both have needed transmission and air conditioner rebuild around 90,000 miles. Otherwise, trouble-free. My '97 looks like new and everything works. This van is unique in size and capability. GM should have updated the Astro instead of discontinuing it.
Favorite Features
Roomy inside, but not big on the outside. Good towing capacity.
Suggested Improvements
Easier seat removal. Reintroduce an updated Astro.
