Poor Quality Build - Nightmare Experience
By bosnol on


1998 Chevrolet Astro LT 3dr Minivan


Awful build quality - it is too bad since the Astro fits a perfect niche for families with diverse outdoor interests. They made this vehicle out of trash - and it did not help with the dealer contesting every warranty claim. The extended warranty saved us $10k in unexpected, chronic breakdowns.
Security Chevrolet in Vista, California, now out of business was the nightmare dealer.

Best Features

Design, space, and very decent mileage for a minivan. Also the 2nd and 3rd seats that can be easily removed for cargo duty is great. We loved the product design and flexability for our family needs but hated the constant operational problems. We still have the van since it is paid for.

Worst Features

Overhaul the entire manufacturing assembly line and the parts network as the factory battery, electric window motors, power steering pumps, A/C, transmission, and more all suffered major breakdowns within the first 1--4 years of purchasing it new. Please note; Only the most common problems were listed here in this review.
