1997 Chevrolet Astro LS 3dr Minivan AWD

Review

This is a great vehicle if you want to pull a boat or a travel trailer...as long as there are no side winds. It's a truck. It drives like a truck, it sucks gas like a truck, and it rides like a truck. I average about 15mpg. I've had the vehicle a year and it needs front brakes...the previous owner replaced the brakes at least twice so a set lasts about 20K miles. The windshield wipers work when they feel like it..not always when I need them. Knob on heater fan control just twisted off. Rear heat control doesn't work.

Favorite Features

Power. The 4.3 V-6 seems like it's is a good engine. AC system is amazing. It cools off this large interior quickly!

Suggested Improvements

Brakes should last more than 20K miles...I am not towing anything. Rides like a truck...but it's not a car. Quality...it's the small things that drive you crazy...windshield wipers, heater controls.
