ReviewIf 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.
Best FeaturesAWD, LT (luxury touring) trim level, Rear AC and Heat, 190 Hp 4.3l V6, combinaton bench with captain chair seat backs for the middle and last row, mechanically tough and reliable, better mileage than most trucks and SUV's, Dutch Tailgate design is great
Worst FeaturesFront footwells are cramped, driver side dash sit's high. Styling is dated. GM doesn't know what to do with the ASTRO. These have been selling for almost 20 years, that should tell you something. There' nohting else like it. All that's required is a few improvements and look out!
