Although the initial quality was
acceptible this vehicle does not hold
it's miles well. All maintenence was
done on schedule however after 60000
miles the vehicle seemed to be in self
destruct mode. Starter, Battery, Water
Pump, AC Compressor, Blower Motor,
Rear Wheel Bearing, Transmission...
This vehicle was the last straw for
the big three (GM, Ford, Chrysler) in
my book. I never had any issues with
my Hyundai and I love my Honda even
more. I hate to say it but our Union
workers are overated. Abolish the
Unions and let's start building decent
vehicles here in the USA. Until then
Honda has my business. They are over
75% USA or Canadian anyway.
The Astro van is the last of the Rear
wheel drive minivans. The roominess
and confort levels are outstanding. It
drives with more confidence than it's
front wheel drive competitors. Stereo
has decent sound quality and
reception. Replacement parts are cheep
GM needs to improve the reliability of
the Astro. Sliding Door becomes mis
aligned easily causing shipped paint
on the door edges. Cheep 80's style
handles break often. Removeable seats
are bulky and clumsy to operate. Old
styling needs an "Extreme Makeover".
