2002 Chevrolet Astro LS Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
We purchased our '02 because we owned a '91 & my wife loved being up higher than a typical minivan. It was barely used when we bought it & it had everything we wanted. The biggest improvement over the older one was the rear dutch doors. It's a system that makes complete sense. The adjustability of the bench seats is tremendous, allowing ample leg room for an adult in the back if neccessary. Try having an adult in the back of a Caravan; they may decide to walk! The only thing I needed to change was the factory rims & tires; looked really soft for such a tough truck (and it is a truck!). We love our Astro van and plan on keeping it for years to come
4.3 Vortec engine (great pickup); rear dutch doors; tow package; rear AC & heat
I wish the benches were split in thirds; it can be a bit difficult removing by yourself (especially the middle). Also, a center console would be nice (we made one for more storage space).
