2003 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
I 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.
Excellent climate control
performance. Clear, easy to read
gauges. Trip computer. Automatic
headlight. Precise gear shifter. Turn
signal reminder. Retained power (even
Sensitive 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.
