2003 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Possibly the ultimate utility vehicle --
8 passenger advertised capacity (i've
had 13), towing capacity comparable to a
pickup, great for camping, etc. In
other words, great if you need to move
large numbers of people and large/bulky
stuff. If your people/stuff fit into a
regular minivan (Caravan or Odyssey),
buy that -- easier to drive and requires
less gas. Don't go in the mud, and
forget working on the car yourself --
the engine is rather inaccessible.
