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


Review

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


Favorite Features

Rear air and towing capacity.


Suggested Improvements

Would love a second door for access on the driver's side. Better gas mileage.

Power and room for family

Move the electronic door lock away from my knee! Expand the driver and front passenger floor space.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Size is a major plus with 2 active boys in sports. Traveling is great especially when we removed the center bench seat.


Suggested Improvements

Fine tune transmission and increase fuel economy.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

2nd row reclining captain's chairs; 3rd row reclining seats comfortable for adults! Running boards (trust me); sound system; interior space.


Suggested Improvements

Just continue making it! Actually moving the front axle forward a few inches to make the driver and front passenger floorspace flat would be nice (but this is not exactly easy).
