1998 Chevrolet Astro LT 3dr Minivan


Review

Awful build quality - it is too bad since the Astro fits a perfect niche for families with diverse outdoor interests. They made this vehicle out of trash - and it did not help with the dealer contesting every warranty claim. The extended warranty saved us $10k in unexpected, chronic breakdowns.
Security Chevrolet in Vista, California, now out of business was the nightmare dealer.


Best Features

Design, space, and very decent mileage for a minivan. Also the 2nd and 3rd seats that can be easily removed for cargo duty is great. We loved the product design and flexability for our family needs but hated the constant operational problems. We still have the van since it is paid for.


Worst Features

Overhaul the entire manufacturing assembly line and the parts network as the factory battery, electric window motors, power steering pumps, A/C, transmission, and more all suffered major breakdowns within the first 1--4 years of purchasing it new. Please note; Only the most common problems were listed here in this review.

1998 Chevrolet Astro LT 3dr Minivan


Review

45000 miles only problem has been
battery and wiper blades replaced once,
steering alignment once. Still with
original Uniroyal tires.
20 mpg highway, good, but would like it
better.
Two factory recalls for very minor prolems.
Have not had typical chevvy things
breaking, e.g. window cranks, door
knobs, etc, that I have had with
chevvies in past years, everything works
like it is supposed to.


Best Features

roomy, but small minivan outside dimensions, good trailer pulling power not found in other mini-vans.


Worst Features

improved trip fuel mileage with light loads.

Review

I would not recomend this van to
anyone. We have 60,000 miles as of
3/02. So far the air went out twice,
the motor was replaced 6 months
after purchase, the front tierods and
bushings need to be replaced the
gas guage does not work the brakes
were replaced last year. The
serpentine belt has been replaced a
year ago and it still makes a loud
noise. They say we need another
new one. This van has been garaged
since we bought it. My wife drives it
40 miles a day to the train station, so
most of othe miles are highway. I
purchased it new in 1997 for $28,900
It was the top of the line TV VCR ect.
If you are looking to purchase an
Astro I would say Don't!!!.
