Second Astro Owned
By jjreeves9752@charter on
2005 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
This is my second Astro. The first I drove 230,000 miles with little maintenance. This is longer but handles nicely I put Mogg idler arms on the 1991 that greatly improved the steering and handling. I plan to do it on the 2005 in a year or so. I now have 40000 miles on the 2005. I drive these vans from SC to Yellowstone Natl. Park and on to Phoenix and back. I pull a midsized bass boat for short 20 or 50 trips. We especially like the fold down bench seats for the second and third row seats. We throw coats and etc. over the first folded down bench. I have driven Toyota vans but this Astro will outdrive it hands down with a lot of hauling space.
Fold down benches to haul flat coats and etc on. A 4.3 v6 engine that will run 90 mph on the highway very easily.
The gas mileage of course. The idler steering needs after factory update with the Mogg Idler Arms and Sensor Shocks that that really give the Astro a good ride and handling ability.
