2000 Chevrolet Astro LS 3dr Minivan


Review

I'm sad to say that my 2000 Chevy Astro is getting onto its last legs and GM doesn't make the any more. I bought mine used with 85,000 km off a 4 year lease in 2004. i have to that this has been the longest lasting, least expensive vehicle I have ever owned. Secretly, I think GM stopped making these because they were too reliable.

My Astro now has over 270,000 km and I had no problems other than normal wear and tear. I'm still running on my second brake job with the rear drums never having been touched. Tires seem to last forever on the Astro - at least mine do. It still has the original muffler. I' using AMSOil synthetic and I change it every 40,000 km. Sad to see it go....


Best Features

Astro's run forever. GM's dealers probably killed this vehicle because they weren't making enough in repairs from it. If you think I'm full of it - keep in mind that new car dealerships make 80% of their money from the shop and less than 20% off new car sales.


Worst Features

Yeah! Retool and start up the line again with the 4.3 engine. GM newer V6 and V8 engines are too unreliable - but of course that's a design feature isn't it.....lol.

Review

I've put 40000 miles in 3 years since I had it. I must admitt it's a good runner with the 4.3 6cyl. but simple things are going wrong that should not happen. Expect to replace the drivers power window motor cuz everyone I've talk to had a problem. Front and rear air you will have a major leak from front to back. You want your fuel guage to work forget it. How about lights behind the radio just drive when the suns out. I like the dutch doors except for the famous rust under the lift window. And I'M retireed UAW oh well.


Best Features

Great room size for trips. Power to pull some nice toys.


Worst Features

Can't make a power window then go back to crank.

Review

We bought this van in 2002. It is
very roomy except for the foot areas
for the driver and passenger. It's
comfortable and easy to drive. The
2nd & 3rd seats are removable but are
heavy when taking them out. The only
significant complaint we have is the
gas and electrical. I only get 13-14
mpg and we have had some problems an
electric window and keyless remote
system. These are the only reasons I
would have for trading it in for
something else.


Best Features

Roomy, easy to drive, comfortable, reliable. Dual heat and a/c for front and back.


Worst Features

More foot room for driver and passenger.

Review

If you keep them clean, get them
serviced on time, and like to haul
lots of people and cargo, Astro is a
great vehicle. Plenty of power, get-up-
n-go and gets great mileage over long
trips. Best MPG at 70 to 80 Mph.
Averaged 22 MPG from MPLS to ORLANDO
running 80% over 70MPH.


Best Features

Large Cargo bay. Large fuel tank. I get almost 28 GALS on-board. Goes 275 freeway miles before the gas guage dips below the full mark.


Worst Features

More padding behind the edges of interior panels... to aid in dampening vibrations and road noise.

Review

At 35000 miles/year, I am hard on a
vehicle. Most of the miles were city
driving(65-70%). I tend to wear brakes
out faster than most people. Body
integrity is excellent. Not a squeak or
rattle for the first 80,000 miles.
Still is quiet at 145K. No motor or
tranny problems. Still goes 3000 miles
without burning a quart of oil!


Best Features

Dutch doors! The best option ever offered.


Worst Features

More leg room for the front passenger. Have no idea how to do that!
