2004 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We are on our 2nd Astro, our first is a
1988 Astro LT. The 4.3L engine is one
of the best.I fix cars for a living and
this is the van for my family.


Best Features

ALL


Worst Features

I think every car has room for improvements, but I'll keep buying.

2004 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Our family of four has been using this
as a family vehicle for a year, with
several long distance trips towing a
popup camper. The ride and comfort are
excellent; we get 18mpg city; 22mpg hwy
and 18-20 towing. But the bottom line
is that if you want a minivan that has
no trouble pulling a trailer 2500 lbs
or more, then the Astro/Safari is your
only choice.


Best Features

2nd row reclining captain's chairs; 3rd row reclining seats comfortable for adults! Running boards (trust me); sound system; interior space.


Worst Features

Just continue making it! Actually moving the front axle forward a few inches to make the driver and front passenger floorspace flat would be nice (but this is not exactly easy).

2004 Chevrolet Astro AWD 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Over all this is by far the BEST
vehicle I have ever owned ....

I traded in a ExtCab 3Dr Silverado and
bought my Astro when my 2nd child was
born. I love having 2 full benches in
the back and still having a LARGE area
behind the 3rd row for hauling and
storage.
All of my friends and family have
children also so traveling together is
easy and roomy with this van.
Not to mention when a huge snow and ice
storm hit WV I was able to get to and
from work everyday safely when others
even some Trucks were left sitting :)


Best Features

A/C and Heat controls for back. Having a CD player AND a Cassette. Back benches are removable making it awesome for hauling large objects. AWD has been better than my 4X4 was. Large back windows make viewing so easy and safer.


Worst Features

more room for the front seat passenger. Rear benches should fold BACKWARDS or even down flat into the foor.

2004 Chevrolet Astro Rwd 3dr Minivan (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The best vehicle in its class. The
problem is that it's the only one in
its class. Because of no competition,
GM has treated the Astro like an ugly
step child. The last revision was
nearly ten years ago.
I upgraded to a 2000 model from the '91
I had. The only noticeable difference
beside appearance was the reliability
of a newer vehicle. After just a few
years my new van rattled just like my
old one. I've had many service calls
that were fortunately under warranty.
Delco batteries only last two years in
Florida.I love my van but I'm sorry
that when I'm ready for a new one, GM
will have done little to give me a
reason to buy.


Best Features

Better utility than ANY SUV or other minivan. Small enough to drive around town and big enough to really work.


Worst Features

Give back the outboard armrests. More leg room up front. A few more inches of cargo length Easier to remove passenger seats. More power. Better suspension (steering geometry scrubs tires). Better quality! Up to date features. Stiffer frame & body.

Review

mr. Edmunds-- as anyone who has owned
an Astro Van can tell you, it is in a
class of it's own--true mid-size--I
just bought my 4th one in 18 yrs. All
have had over 200k mi.on them. I still
own my 96 (in add. to my 03) with 260k
with no major repairs. I have had a
chance to see 1st hand , the Astro
outperform, in almost ALL respects, the
so called competition. GOD save the
Astro !!


Best Features

Parkability,size, power,reliability,comfort,rugged build


Worst Features

more front pass.foot room--move elec. door locks(knees hit and lock)put back drivers left armrest.
