2003 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Nice family van. Lots of space for
people & cargo. If you are looking at
other vans pull them side by side &
compare the room. This is no mini van.
All seating is full size & comfortable
for adults. Motor has strong torque
for towing. Ride is a 100 times better
than some of those consumer magazines
rate it. I was surprised how well the
van did ride after reading some so-so
reviews. Doing light towing (appx
1,500 lbs) we still get 17mpg on the
highway. Not to bad with a road
mixture of flat & hills. We have
friendS who are on their 2nd or 3rd
van & rate them highly.
We ended up being 100% satisfied with
the van. Every family member from 8 to
41 likes it. As time goes on I
personably like the van more every
day. We have had several car & trucks
in the past but this is by far our
favorite vehicle so far. I would
defiantly recommend the Astro AWD.
Large sliding door is heavy for small
kids to open & close. 3rd row is ok
for kids to get in & out but a tight
fit for adults, but I think most 3rd
rows are like this. It took a few
weeks to get used to foot well on
driver side floor.
