Could be a better van.
By rsocia on
2001 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
This is the second Astro we have
owned. We were in two very serious
accidents with our first and the van
held up great. My a/c, the window
switches, and belt broke in both
vans. The fuel pump has gone out in
my new one along with the emergency
brake. The wiper control broke. The
interior does not hold up very well.
The van sounds horrible, but the
service department does not know why.
It stays in the shop. It is difficult
to see out of the backe windows with
the doors. The sliding door is hard
to close. I do feel safe in it and I
love driving it, but I am afraid that
it will leave me stranded one day.
I like the console and the size of the
van. It is comfortable to drive and
Better interior. Go back to the back
doors that were on earlier models, the
ones with the top door that lifted
up. Needs to be better built,
including the air conditioner.
