Review of the 1999 Chevrolet Astro

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Last midsize you can buy, eight-passenger seating, versatile, rear-driver tows like a full-size.

  • Cons

    Design is two decades old, cramped front footwells, boxy sheetmetal, can't hide its truck roots.

  • What's New for 1999

    A new, all-wheel-drive active transfer case replaces the previous AWD system, and includes a new control module and service light. There are two new interior roof consoles: one with storage is optional on base model, another with trip computer is standard on LS and LT trim. A new LT stripe design comes in three new colors. Dealer-installed running boards are available, as are new optional aluminum wheels. Three exterior paint colors are added for '99, while depowered airbags finally arrive this year. Finally, the outside mirrors are redesigned, available heated and with or without electrochromic glare reduction.

I baught the van because of 9 grand kids. It was and is great. But the kids have grown up and have thier own cars, so it is now too big for one.




Many problems

Vehicle: 1999 Chevrolet Astro 3dr Minivan

I bought this van because of its size. This van has had many problems. Window switches replaced, door locks replaced, door opener replaced, calipers replaced, all these problems under 36,000 miles. Latest problem the differential had to be replaced at 38,000. Unheard of by many mechanics. GM would not pick up total cost to replace it. Only half. The executive office said since I didn't use the dealer to service it all the time, they would not help me. Why should I pay the deal 2 times the amount for a simple oil change.
