2003 Chevrolet Astro Cargo AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My Astro all wheel drive easily maneuvers through mud, snow and ice. The 4.3 six cylinder engine gives the power of an eight cylinder with the economy of a six. A 4 foot by 8 foot sheet of plywood fits comfortably in the cargo space and the side and rear doors allows for easy loading. The solid construction of this vehicle is something I've always liked about Chevy products. Just the sound of the doors closing rings of quality. It has preformed better than average over the years

2003 Chevrolet Astro Cargo Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The van ran fine for about the first 400
miles or so. Then it began to shake and
droan while cruising at 50 MPH or
coming to a stop. Took it in 3 times to
the dealer and they finally lubricated
the slip yoke. That solution lasted for
about 1000 miles. Now it's back. The
brakes are terrible. Hope I never have
to stop in a hurry. Now, above all else
the thing is squealing like crazy. To
top it all off the tranny is begining
to slip and shudder after cruising on
the highway for an hour. I'm up to
20000 miles on it now and hope it dies
so I can get rid of it. Oh, by the way
if you go to the dealer for service do
not mention it is under warrenty
because they won't fix it properly.+


Best Features

Decent power for passing while under load and excellent load carrying capcity.


Worst Features

Would like to see arm rests on the seats and much, much improved build quality, reliabilty and customer service at the dealerships.

2003 Chevrolet Astro Cargo Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The van fits my needs for work, no
other small cargo style vans available
from other manufacturers. The free
commercial shelving package was a nice
bonus. Interior space rapidly
diminished with those shelves, though.
This was a nice move from a small
pickup truck, my stuff is dry and
secure. Absolutely no vehicle problems
to date, drives in the snow
surprisingly well.


Best Features

Exterior styling (although I would have liked the aerodynamic headlamps on the Chevy cargo), functional interior, 4 wheel discs (love that hydroboost) and the limited slip differential.


Worst Features

Fuel economy is really bad. It is rated at 16 city, but I am getting an average of 12 despite my best attempts to baby the truck. The bad fuel economy may force me to reconsider the Dodge Sprinter in a couple of years. A small diesel engine in the Astro would be really nice.
