GM take a hint.
By Astro Fan on


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


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.
