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.

Good van

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

Our family expanded so we bought this van with 34k miles for a great price. We travel home 3 to 4 times a year (1000mi round trip) and it runs like a charm. No problems. I feel safe when my wife is alone with the kids on trips. Love the rear air and towing capacity




Good solid van

We have four children and love this van. It has plenty of power and room. For the money it was and is a great deal.




Frustrated

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

The size of this van cannot be beat. I LOVE my Astro Van, but I have had the van in for warranty work 9 times for what we thought was the transmission, which was replaced, the accelerator was stuck, and a variety of other engine- transmission problems. I am still in a rental and waiting for a diagnosis. I owned a 1992 Astro and had 150,000 miles on it and never had a problem. Mixed feelings if I would ever buy another.




My chevy astro awd rocks!!!

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!!!




Thank you gm

We are on our 2nd Astro, our first is a 1988 Astro LT. The 4.3L engine is one of the best.I fix cars for a living and this is the van for my family.
