Review of the 2004 Chevrolet Astro

  • Other than its ability to mimic an SUV in terms of towing ability and cargo space, there's not much about the Astro van that makes it a viable choice over its numerous competitors.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Big-van capacity, small-van package; available all-wheel drive; high-towing ability.

  • Cons

    Engineered in the early '80s, iffy crash test scores, cramped front footwells.

  • What's New for 2004

    Mechanically unchanged, the Astro now offers a chrome grille.

2nd astro van

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

The first one I bought was a 1995, drove it 109,000 miles, the transfer case went, replaced it for $2300 then traded it for a 2004 model. It is now 2008 and I have 51,000 miles and need a new transfer case. Both vehicles had electrical problems with the 'check engine soon' light, numerous brake repairs and each needed idler arms and torsion bars. I love the van tho and today when my mechanic told me to junk it because I needed a transfer case and a brake hub and a speed sensor, I said no. But, now, I need to find a more reliable vehicle that will carry and do all the family stuff that my van does.

I got myself a 2003 Chevrolet Astro AWD LS and it has enabled me to do things I've always dreamed of,I found myself traveling with my loved ones safely and comfortably in this Vehicle, so I may be a bit biased, but I still enjoy washing the damn thing and looking at it as well. P.S. they are also great for dates!!!




Love my astro !!

Over all this is by far the BEST vehicle I have ever owned .... I traded in a ExtCab 3Dr Silverado and bought my Astro when my 2nd child was born. I love having 2 full benches in the back and still having a LARGE area behind the 3rd row for hauling and storage. All of my friends and family have children also so traveling together is easy and roomy with this van. Not to mention when a huge snow and ice storm hit WV I was able to get to and from work everyday safely when others even some Trucks were left sitting :)




Best vehicle in 3 classes

If your looking for a SUV, truck or mini-van this is it except better. It's all of the above. Plenty of room for cargo and people. It tow's up to 5000 lbs(AWD version)and seats 6 people without feeling cramped, 8 for those short trips. The LT version provides a luxury feel to this "mid size Van". I never driven a more stable vehicle on snow,water and ice (again AWD). Our initial intention was to buy a larger SUV (smaller SUV's are no comparison) and when we looked at overall interior space, power and fuel economy we became ASTRO owners and yet saved about 10,000 dollars.




My third awd astro

Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Love the AWD.Prefer over 4WD.It's the only minivan that my labrador fits in. Would like more leg room up front, available DVD roof mount and moonroof would be nice. Back seat a monster to remove. Need to modify power window switches. My cat closed the window on my neighbor's hand!

Lacks cramped room of the smaller vans (ventures, caravans, aerostars, etc.). More room, more power.
