2005 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
Long term experience very good. Holds up very well. Built like a tank. Has steel reinforcement behind plastic bumpers. Only item replaced: Alternator.
No left door to worry about; rear door (s) design; full frame
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.
