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.

An "unknown" reliable minivan

by on
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.

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

Been pretty reliable so far. The brakes on this vehicle are awesome ( design was borrowed from their truck line 4 wheel discs) I'm 6'3 with long legs and this is the only vehicle that I can actually sit in without hitting my knees. This also includes the 3rd row seats. I've tried a lot of vehicles. Rear heat and A/C is effective. With a 8 seats filled, cargo room is still ample for that trip to L.A. I don't have have the towing gears, so I get with AWD 15 city and 21 highway. Power is as strong as any other minivan out there. Ride is a bit stiff. AWD helps with handling corners and different road terrain. GM has improved interior sound levels and rattles compared to prior years.

Chevrolet astro van awd

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

This is the 5th Chevy Astro Van I have owned. They are great vans. Better than having a truck because they get better gas milage and quiet running. I just bought a new one and still own two older ones. One has 165000 miles(1994) and the other one 106000 (2000) and they are still running great. I maintain them and have not had any major problems with any of them. They are great on long trips with family, we have even taken out the seats and camped in them overnight. They are also great for carrying building supplies. I like them better than a truck because you can use the whole vehicle and have heat and air and spread out and be comfortable. I get great gas mileage doing a lot of highway miles.




Astro's are great

This is my second Astro. I also have a 1989 with 107k which I purchased new and is still going strong. I just purchased this 2004 as GM is supposed to stop making the Astro/Safari in 2005.

I have TWO Astro Mini-vans, and I love them!!! My first is an '89, has 140,000 miles on it, and is still on the road. My new one has the AWD and extended features which are absolutely GREAT!
