2004 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
I would have to disagree with Edmunds
on the "dated" Astro/Safari vans. Are
they the newest design? No. Do they
still sell units? Yes. This van is not
a mini van. Find me a competing
Japanese unit that can tow 5400 lbs!
This is a towing vehicle that can also
seat 6 in style, and 8 with comfort.
And you can park it in a mall parking
space with a minimum difficulty. It
doesn't handle like a minivan because
it isn't. Its a 1/2 ton pickup with a
big cabin for people. It really is in
a category by itself. When mine
reaches 200K miles, I'll go buy another
Towing! 6-8 seating capacity in
comfort. Parks easily at the mall.
Excellent turning circle
Same complaints as everyone...more
footwell space. Include an XM capable
stereo for long journeys.
