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

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.

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

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.
