Review of the 2003 Chevrolet Astro

  • Other than its ability to mimic a SUV 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, high towing ability.

  • Cons

    Engineered in the early '80s, iffy crash test scores, cramped front footwells.

  • What's New for 2003

    All 2003 Astros have larger 16-inch aluminum wheels and an improved braking system.

Great all around vehicle car/truck

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

My Astro van fuctions as both a mini and cargo van. It is very spacious for hauling passengers, equipment, and furniture. The conversion into a cargo van is awesome, by taking out the extra passenger seats, or folding them down.

Astro number 2

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Pack it up; pile the dogs in and away we go all across the USA --- most of the time I'm travelling alone and rely heavily on the reliability and durability, good performance of this van! The roomy interior is just right for all the paraphrenalia that needs to accompany us on our adventures. This is my 2nd Astro ..... my trade-in Astro had 260,000 miles on it and was still going strong! I am looking forward to putting 260,000 on this one too!




That "sure" feeling

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?...

I bought a new Astro in 1995. I was so pleased over the years that I bought a 2003 Astro 2 weeks ago....

Thanks for your concern.... For your records, there's a known problem with the ABS system on the Astro/Safari vans. There's an official TSB but NO recall. Still amazes me why no formal recall....
