1999 Chevrolet Astro LS 3dr Minivan AWD


These vans are very reasonable used. Bought this van at 62K, and have 86K on it now. It has needed an alternator, power steering lines, vacum hose for hvac controls, idler arms,and a front hub. About $3K at dealer cost, I save by doing a lot of the work myself. Yes, the gauges, switches, ect. are typical GM junk, but I love this van. It is a large, tall, spacious, heavy, solid vehicle. The ride is cushy and "van like". People always comment on how huge it is inside (the middle seat taken out gives passengers in back a limo like ride) Let's not forget the AWD. This van goes in the snow unbeleivably well. These vans were designed with utility in mind, and are known to last 150-200k,(change the fluids)

Best Features

All wheel drive. This van is pretty large and heavy. Drives like good ol' American iron. Huge cargo capacity, good power, power seat.

Worst Features

Very junky gauges and switches. Could use over all refinement. Averages 12.5 mpg according to the trip computer, but again this is a big truckish vehicle
