Review of the 2001 Chevrolet Astro

  • Other than its ability to mimic a small pickup truck in terms of towing ability and cargo space, there's not much about the Astro van that makes it a viable choice over its numerous competitors.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Big-van capacity, small-van package, available all-wheel drive, towing ability.

  • Cons

    Engineered in the early '80s, mediocre crash-test scores, intrusive front wheel wells.

  • What's New for 2001

    Performance from Astro's Vortec 4300 V6 is enhanced, compliments of a new powertrain control module. Also new is a low-emission vehicle (LEV) version. Color choices are expanded to include Light Pewter Metallic and Dark Carmine Red Metallic.

Good astro

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is my 4th Astro but my first AWD. Even though the gas mileage is less with AWD, I find it holds the road better, especially wet roads. I would purchase another.




2001 astro awd, what an

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is the second Astro I have owned, the other being a 1995 AWD that was a maintenance nightmare. But the Astro is so ideal for my needs that I traded for the 2001 AWD. What a difference! So much more thoughfully laid out, seats are MUCH lighter (still no picnic) to remove. The driver controls are thoughfully laid out easy to reach and control. The response to driver imput is much improved and better power when it's needed. The rocker arm mouldings are a nice addition and make the van more attractive than the 1995. I am very happy with my purchase and expect to continue with the Astro/Safari for yet another one.




A handy van

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Van is excellent in snow.Optional seats are comfortable.Cruises well on the highway but can be a little wishy washy on windy day driving.Very solid feel and LOTS of power.Plenty of cargo room.Ride is a little firm but better than a suv.The family loves it!!Oh... and not a single problem yet!!

I was able to add keyless entry to my wife's 2001 Honda Accord LX. I would like to do the same for my sister's 2003 Chevy Venture. Anyone out there know where to buy these "factory" add ons?...
