A Lot of Van for the Money
By LVFosterDad on
Vehicle2003 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewThis van has more passenger, cargo, and towing capacity than any other minivan on the market. The truck frame and suspension make it much sturdier than the the car-based minivans of today yet the ride quality and handling reflect the beefier suspension. The interior quality of the LS looks and feels cheap but I like the rubber floor mats that it came with. Compared to the 2002 Pontiac Montana that I owned previously, this van is much more capable of of hauling 8 adult passengers and their luggage. If you're looking for a van that can truly carry eight people and still cruise effortlessly down the freeway this is the van for you.
Best FeaturesSingle sliding door that feels sturdier than the dual sliding doors of today's newer vans, rubber floor mats, great engine and transmission, surprisingly good fuel economy, commanding view of the road, wonderful towing capacity, wonderful price.
Worst FeaturesCheap interior, no GM Oil Life System, intruding wheel wells/lack of front foot space, lack of front storage, turning radius of a Greyhound bus (don't even try to make a U-turn), bad crash test rating, very squirly on wet pavement, vehicle is "thrown" around by high winds.
