Happy With It
By yoyack on
1998 Chevrolet Astro LS 3dr Minivan
Bought new and its been very good. Count on the fuel pump going out. Mine did and so did every one in my employers fleet. It's big, comfortable and great on long drives. Power window, water pump and alternator replaced. Never overheated in 115 degree desert heat. Great A/C kept things cool inside. Wife likes this more than the Q45. Would buy again if reliability is as good as imports. Domestics just aren't there yet. Extend the warranty and significantly lower parts prices and I will buy another one. Parts for imports used to be expensive, now domestics are no different.
Great engine cooling, great A/C, lots of hatch space.
Sliding door will not stay open when facing downhill, no positive locking mechinism, just a "speed bump" holds door open. Needs A/C controls in the rear. Current rear A/C control and rear wiper control are hard to operate, needs to be "turn dial" type.
