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