2000 Chevrolet Astro LS 3dr Minivan AWD


Review

I love my Astro, its been the most reliable car I've ever had. American build quality is making waves once again and I'm proud to own this vehicle. Handles great, the 4.3 vortec is bullet-proof and super responsive. You dont have to worry about little problems because the Astro parts while not luxurious are very time-tested.


Best Features

Comfortable, roomy, great for road trips and around town errands. More durable than a Honda Accord, maintenance costs very low. All around solid vehicle, would put it up against any Hyundai any day


Worst Features

Exterior style is a bit dated, would suggest buying one used, 4-5 years old. Of course the interior plastics, though reliable, have been a knock for some time now, but that wouldn't stop me from having another one.

Review

A great all purpose vehicle when it runs right. Unchanged in 20 yrs. like the old VW beatle. Mine "burns" more coolant than oil! Head gasket leaking. Need a new engine after just 74K. Lukas oil treatment no help. Engine hard to service; spark plugs not accessible. Hard to find mechanics who know and understand this vehicle. The front end rebuilt for $1800. Tape deck stolen in Manhattan inspite of security/alarm system. This cargo van was converted to passenger minus the seats--large clear glass (!) windows were cut into the sides. 5- leaf rear springs were added for heavy duty which I recommend! I was thrilled with 18.6 MPG highway recently. But I'm trading it in for a used 2005.


Best Features

Roomy. I've hauled 2 600 lb balled trees, 200 lb slabs of oak, 12 sheets of 4x8 plywood, 5 people on different occasions. The more weight inside the better this vehicle handles. Superb handling


Worst Features

Double the overall quality to compete with Toyota. Forget "come-on" features like outside temperature readings, rear "Dutch Doors", remote door locks, power mirrors. Add driver-side rear doors--don't have to be sliding. The Honda Element is a spin off from this great design. GM should re-think.

Review

Just bought my van, it is a cargo van used for hauling just about anything. GM just quit making these in 2005, for another SUV-like vehicle[ like there aren't enought of them]..a mistake in my view. My 1st Astro was an '86, ran forever, and I needed a van that could take more cargo capacity than a front drive mini. I plan on driving the wheels off, and it should hold up I think


Best Features

Comfortable seats w/ lumbar, lock out feature so you can't accidently lock your keys in the ignition, overhead light defeat button, reasonable gas mileage, truck like build quality, cheap parts available anywhere.


Worst Features

Pot metal exterior door handles, but easy to replace, engine access to real good[ I do my own repairs]..all-in-all good van.

Review

Too many little things have fallen apart. I've got 50K miles on the car and have had to repair the following: - New brakes (I've had three new rotors and pads on the front) - Gas Gauge doesn't work - vacum problems cause the A/C fan not to work - Sliding door doesn't work right - Tons of little pieces have fallen off


Best Features

Big car, spacious seating


Worst Features

Build it with better quality

Review

I purchased it used with 50,000 km and have added 60,000 km in last two years. It replaced a 1988 with 325,000 km. Great highway vehicle; comfortable, quiet, great visibility, reasonably economical at highway speeds. Great capacity. Easily accommodates up to 8 passengers with full load or a very comfortable vehicle for 6, with all gear + 2 canoes on top. Great clearance in deep snow. With 4 winter tires, this van will navigate 8 inches or more of snow, and is my preferred vehicle for winter driving compared to my car. It's also great in summer for comfortable drives and trips. Downside - the intrusive wheel wells in the passenger compartment. Otherwise, conservative styling, simple clean lines. It looks great.


Best Features

Comfort, quiet, versatility, driver visibility. The 'big box' look that gains respect on the road from other drivers. The power and load capacity. Has a good sound system. The full power group. Conservative styling. Ease of maintenance and repair, parts availability, and low cost


Worst Features

Redesign the front wheel wells to reduce intrusiveness into passenger compartment; provide more legroom for driver and front seat passenger
