1997 Chevrolet Astro LS 3dr Minivan AWD


After nearly 4 years I still own this van. Resale value has dropped so it's senseless to sell or trade. Replaced idler arms and factory recall repaired the windshield wipers. Blower motor on AC was replaced but I guess my resistor is bad since the blower does not always work (i.e. when it's very hot or very cold). Cleaning the throttle body intake took care of the sticking gas pedal. 'Just bought a boat so the towing capacity will come in handy. Ride is rough but improved with Michelin Harmony tires. Driver's side power window sticks but stopping it before it goes all the way down seems to reduce the problem. Current brakes have nearly 30K miles but they are due for replacement.

Best Features

Creature comforts - 4 captain's seats. Towing capacity. More comfort that a truck but can still pull a load. Excellent in the snow with AWD.

Worst Features

Better ride and gas mileage! Better reliablity.
