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.

Good van

by on
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.




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.




Best towing minivan made

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

Our family of four has been using this as a family vehicle for a year, with several long distance trips towing a popup camper. The ride and comfort are excellent; we get 18mpg city; 22mpg hwy and 18-20 towing. But the bottom line is that if you want a minivan that has no trouble pulling a trailer 2500 lbs or more, then the Astro/Safari is your only choice.

Gm take a hint.

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

The best vehicle in its class. The problem is that it's the only one in its class. Because of no competition, GM has treated the Astro like an ugly step child. The last revision was nearly ten years ago. I upgraded to a 2000 model from the '91 I had. The only noticeable difference beside appearance was the reliability of a newer vehicle. After just a few years my new van rattled just like my old one. I've had many service calls that were fortunately under warranty. Delco batteries only last two years in Florida.I love my van but I'm sorry that when I'm ready for a new one, GM will have done little to give me a reason to buy.
