Review of the 2005 Chevrolet Astro

  • Other than its ability to mimic an SUV in terms of towing ability and cargo space, there's not much about the Astro van that makes it a viable choice over its numerous competitors.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Big-van capacity in a small-van package, available all-wheel drive, high-towing ability.

  • Cons

    Engineered in the early '80s, iffy crash test scores, cramped front footwells.

  • What's New for 2005

    No significant changes for the Astro this year.

Does well for what it

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Okay, so I have only had this van for a few months, but I have had experience with other Astros, as well as other brands for comparision. For what the Astro was designed for it does it well. It's not overly stylish, but it is very funtional. Has adequate power delivery, although not refined. Handles like a van, not a BMW. Rides like a truck, not a Buick, but it will haul people and trailers. It will also get decent fuel mileage. Makes a great work truck and can take the abush and punish usually associated with work trucks.




Best van for our needs

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

This is the third Astro we have owned. Currently we tow a 26.5ft travel trailer through the midwest and have experienced no problems. One must drive responsibly and not expect to break any speed records.




An "unknown" reliable minivan

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

I brought this vehicle use in Jan 2006. Surprisingly this vehicle's build quality has improved drastically. No squeaks and rattles to date compared to other friends' older astro vans. Improved braking and quiet interior. 4 wheel disc brakes setup was taken from chevy/gmc truck division. It possess impressive stopping power. Fuel mileage is not bad, getting 21mpg on the highway. Rear A/C and rear heat are awesome. Trunk space is ample for those long trips. Leg room in all rows are very good, compare to other minivans. Power is good. No problems to date.
