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


Review

Long term experience very good. Holds up very well. Built like a tank. Has steel reinforcement behind plastic bumpers. Only item replaced: Alternator.


Best Features

No left door to worry about; rear door (s) design; full frame


Worst Features

Light under hood; switch for rear light; better engine layout, more leg room. There is a definite requirement for a TRUCK type van, not a passenger car converted into a "van" which is nothing more than a glorified station wagon.

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


Review

This is the 4th Astro that I have owned in 9 years, and each one has been better the the last. I averaged about 90,000 to 100,000 miles on the last three and already have 1600 on the 2005 Astro. I love it.


Best Features

Automatic headlights on at dusk, door lock/unlock with the transmission shifter, back seat audio port, new seat belts in front, overhead information center.


Worst Features

GM has discontinued the Astro, so there will be no 2006. I feel this is a bad move on their part.

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


Review

I own and show dogs. The Astro van is perfect size for transporting dogs and crates. Crates are easily stacked for the smaller breeds. I have had no problems with this van.


Best Features

Size is the important factor. It's perfect.


Worst Features

Everything is perfect as is.

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


Review

I was pleasantly pleased with the towing ability, with a 21' Sports Boat. The 4.3 liter engine seems bullet-proof. I would bet it would take an additional $ 15,000.00 worth of vehicle to do what the Astro does. The style seems current, sure the design is dated. The engineering is still proven, basic, simple and reliable. Fuel economy is better than expected. Just a strong little work horse.


Best Features

Rear wheel drive, simple durable. Works well on slippery boat launch ramps, and in snow.


Worst Features

More front leg room. Less squeaks and rattles.
