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.
4 wheel disk brakes, rear a/c and rear heat, quiet interior, solid build feel, and trunk space. All-wheel- drive. Anitlock brakes.
A little more power and fuel effiency (mpg is not that bad). A 5 or 6 speed transmission would have been nice. A little more front footwell space.
