Bought van new and it performed well until it reached 60,000 miles. Then the electric door locks began to fail. The power window motor failed on drivers side. Water pump and and thermostat @ 80,000. 100,000 differential bearings went bad. 119,000 cooling leak around intake manifold gasket. Always maintained van and never abused.
At this point none!
Don't buy G.M. products. They are not designed to last but engineered to fall apart so you will buy another one.
Two fuel pumps in 13 months cost me almost $1400.00 since they need to drop the fuel tank. Replace with Delco parts next time. The van has had transmission problems with the way it shifts on long drives. I am having electical problems with overhead lights flickering on and off while driving. various rattles from the van. It does run strong.
This was our 2nd astro van. This one
gave us no trouble. It only had one or
two visits to the shop for warranty
issues and they were dealt with quickly
and easily. These vehicles easily
towed our 3 waverunners without ever
overheating. A bit slow on a step hill
but not bad at all. The car seemed
bullet proof. It also spent the last 4
1/2 years hauling band kids and
equipment comfortably.My one complaint
was it seemed to rattle a lot
I liked that the 2 back seats were both
adjustable and removeable.
rock solid and roomy are why I like my
astros so much today 5 astros are being
driven by family members like myself
the astro they are driving are not
their first. the 4.3 v6 may just be the
finest motor GM has ever put in a
vehicle trouble free utility put the
astro at top of my list.
I bought my Astro with 15,000 miles on
it. It has run well, although Chevy
has had a prpoblem with the drive
train clunking for 9 years and hasn't
fixed the problem yet. I don't like
the fact that you can choose to
recirculate the air. Also If the fan
is blowing on head and feet at the
same time it autmatically uses the
AC. I never could get the heater to
heat my feet and not my face. The
resale value is a joke. But I do like
the power and being able to take the
seats out for hauling things. Overall
I've been just satisfied, not
overjoyed and not completely unhappy.
Rear Air. Keyless Entry
Choice of inside or outside air flow.
A heater that heats your feet and air
flow on head and feet at same time
without using the AC.
