Powerful..but it's a truck
By daddyronhank on
1997 Chevrolet Astro LS 3dr Minivan AWD
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.
Power. The 4.3 V-6 seems like it's is
a good engine. AC system is amazing.
It cools off this large interior
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.
