1990 Chevrolet Astro CL 3dr Minivan AWD


Review

I have driven my Astro since I bought
it new in 1990. Drove it on a trip the
next day for 1500 miles and have loved
this van ever since. I now have 193,000
miles on it and have only done routine
mechanical for it. AWD has saved my
bacon a few times. It now gets about 22
to 24 miles to the gallon on the hwy so
I just can't let go of it.


Best Features

AWD, overall size of inside, easy in and out of the seats when I need to use it as a truck.


Worst Features

Same as everyone else put the wheelwells somewhere else not next to driver's leg.

1990 Chevrolet Astro 3dr Ext Minivan


Review

I bought my Astro new. The biggest
repair I have ever had on the van was
the locks failing. All I have had to
do is normal repairs. The back door
just failed last year at 185,000
miles. I havent had it fixed. It
almost has 200,000 miles on it and I
still has get up and go. It doesnt run
like it has 198,500 miles on it. I'm
looking at getting a newer one.


Best Features

love the layout. Easy to maintain


Worst Features

Move the air filter to make it easier to replace. Now it takes about 45 minutes to replace. Change the type of paint use.

1990 Chevrolet Astro 3dr Minivan


Review

I have had my Astro for 8 years now. It
has been a really great car. I bought it
reconditioned after a wreck, and it still
has been great. This year it burned a
valve in the head of the engine and is
running rougher; however, my father
likes it so much he said he'll keep it and
put in a newer engine.


Best Features

I like the space for hauling people or stuff. I also like the go-power in the engine.


Worst Features

The door handles are coming off on two of the doors. (I have a friend who had the same problem with one of his astro doors.) So, better handles would be an improvement.

Review

I bought my Astro new off the lot with 40 miles on it. I now have over 221,000
miles on it. I have traveled all over the U.S. in my van, I pull a 1968, 16ft
camper with it, it takes me up to the ski resorts in the winter and drives me
on the beach at the ocean. I love my van. Even if I get something else to
drive I plan to keep my little van.


Best Features

The style from 12 years ago hasn't changed so drastic that it doesn't look outdated.


Worst Features

Passenger leg room could improve and more durable door handles
