2004 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
If 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.
AWD, 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
Front 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!
