Aged but utilitarian van
By Ron 2002 on
Vehicle2003 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewI have had this van for little over a
year with 28,000 miles. So far, I've
had no repair problems. Cargo space is
what sold me on this van, and it has
been impressive. It has almost as
much room as my previous full-size
van. This van is by no means fast but
has tremendous pulling power. The
steering is light and quick, but it is
also loose and numb. Although Chevy
has continually updated this vehicle
over the years, you can't escape the
fact that this is a vehicle from the
eighties. While functional, interior
design is very stark and dull with
plenty of monochrome plastics. All in
all however, Astro is a very capable
and reliable vehicle.
Best FeaturesExcellent climate control performance. Clear, easy to read gauges. Trip computer. Automatic headlight. Precise gear shifter. Turn signal reminder. Retained power (even radio). Visibility.
Worst FeaturesSensitive power window switch which always goes into Auto mode. Brake which feels faded. Multi-function turn signal stalk (feels cheap and cruise switches on accidentally too easily). Dash design and material. Bigger and more precise wipers.
