2002 Chevrolet Astro LS Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

The astro is much better than the
Suburban for my family, much better
accessability between rows when dealing
with kids. Hey, its not sexy but its a
good ride.

Review

This is my 3rd Astro, a 2002 LS model.
I hope that GM comes to its senses and
redesignes the ASTRO. There is no
other package like it on the road -
good cargo and towing ability and room
for my family and still has room for
more stuff behind the 3rd row!). Mid-
sized SUVs scrunch a 3rd row (if you
can even get it in the highest costs
models) right up against the back
glass. Full sized SUVs cost 10-15k
more and drink more fuel with no more
space. This is a great package. GM -
you've redesigned the s-10
replacement. Now its time to do the
same for the ASTRO!


Best Features

Torquey v6 with good towing ability, lots of room, stable on snow with AWD.


Worst Features

Redesign needed to keep current. This van serves an important niche like no other. GM can easily sell 150,000 or more a year with a redesign...

Review

We are on our second Astro. We love
the room, comfort & ease of movement,
(important when you have to get back to
little kids in car seats quickly no
center console to trip over). Most of
all we found that this van is reliable,
powerful easy drive, sits high for
great visibility. Lots of cargo room.
There isn't a minivan that can compare!
It is like an SUV w/minivan price
w/better gas mileage and
manuverability. Astros are only for the
economically minded who need a reliable
work horse to tote a family.


Best Features

Interior size, comfort, power, easy nice drive, visibility.


Worst Features

Concentrate more on the details! Tighten it up. Make it quieter. Interior is nice but overall lacks the quality of a thoughtful design. Just try to have an overhead video put in. It can be done, but a standard upper console retrofit isn't available for the chevy astro model.

Review

Chevy has left the challenge in place
for any other manufacturer to put as
much value in a van as the Astro. It
may be an old design, but it continues
to fill a niche in the NA market. The
room, fuel mileage and towing are
great! The styling may seem boxy, but
when you are looking for reliability,
you cannot beat this combination.


Best Features

Exceptional reliability


Worst Features

Continue to build this midsize class of van.
