This was our 2nd astro van. This one
gave us no trouble. It only had one or
two visits to the shop for warranty
issues and they were dealt with quickly
and easily. These vehicles easily
towed our 3 waverunners without ever
overheating. A bit slow on a step hill
but not bad at all. The car seemed
bullet proof. It also spent the last 4
1/2 years hauling band kids and
equipment comfortably.My one complaint
was it seemed to rattle a lot
I liked that the 2 back seats were both
adjustable and removeable.
I like the all wheel drive in the
winter time. We have heard the
windshields leak frequently on these
are's does. We bought into the
extended warrenty. You might need it.
I have also heard the fuek injectors
have gone bad frequently on the this
engine. If I buy another van it would
still be an Astro I'm not really
excited about those compact mini vans
and i like the V-6 engine.
The all wheel drive in the winter time
a very good vehicle to get through the
I would like to see them have doors on
both sides of the van. That is the
only downside that my wifes dislikes
compared to the mini vans.
rock solid and roomy are why I like my
astros so much today 5 astros are being
driven by family members like myself
the astro they are driving are not
their first. the 4.3 v6 may just be the
finest motor GM has ever put in a
vehicle trouble free utility put the
astro at top of my list.
I bought my Astro with 15,000 miles on
it. It has run well, although Chevy
has had a prpoblem with the drive
train clunking for 9 years and hasn't
fixed the problem yet. I don't like
the fact that you can choose to
recirculate the air. Also If the fan
is blowing on head and feet at the
same time it autmatically uses the
AC. I never could get the heater to
heat my feet and not my face. The
resale value is a joke. But I do like
the power and being able to take the
seats out for hauling things. Overall
I've been just satisfied, not
overjoyed and not completely unhappy.
Rear Air. Keyless Entry
Choice of inside or outside air flow.
A heater that heats your feet and air
flow on head and feet at same time
without using the AC.
