Poor Stepchild to the Suburban
By KVD on
2002 Chevrolet Astro LS AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Got the LS AWD (with leather and every
available option) for family trips. No
aftermarked flip-down video made for
the model. Owned vehicle 6 months and
has been in the shop 7 times, once to
re-attach the gas tank! Rattles like
garbage truck and parts coming apart on
the interior. Had a 93 Astro that we
drove all over the US with no problems.
Get the impression that all the
attention goes into SUV design and
production. This could be a great
Vortec V-6 and AWD great combo with
amble torque and stability. Sets high
like a truck.
Attention to detail. I get the
unnerving feeling that the minor design
flaws mask the major design flaws.
