2002 Chevrolet Astro LS AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased vehicle as a rental return. I need AWD because I sell property in the mountains and occasionally go off road. Clients are always comfortable. Currently has 180K miles, mostly reliable, minimal repairs have been needed. Gas mileage in the mountains averages 13-14 MPG. 18-20 MPG on the road.
Control on hills and wet roads, style,
A V8 would be nice. V6 has enough power for most everyday driving. Extra power would be nice for towing heavy loads up hill or for someone like me who likes quick acceleration.
