Review 1 of 182

Price Paid:  $20000.00 from Banks Chev-Olds-GMC

Year / Model Reviewed:
2004 Astro cardo AWD

Strengths:
Engine is great. AWD fantastic

Weaknesses:
Leg room is limited and seats not comfortable in cargo van.

Summary:
Can't kill it. Co. has 3 of them. Mine has 190 G and does not use any oil despite going 20 G on a 3 G oil. Mileage is fair @ 18 and always @ 70 MPH. 4.3 L V6 is bullet proof. Got 97 G on original Bridgewtone tires. I drive in Green Mountains of VT in all weather. Snow has never stopped me, and the AWD is amazing. Van is really abused and keeps on truckin.

Review 3 of 182

Price Paid:  $24000.00 from apple chevy

Strengths:
great looks ,lots of room, awd ,lots of power

Weaknesses:
passenger side needs a little more leg room.transmission shifts a little rough.

Summary:
we love this van. it is the perfect alternative to fill the gap between a mommy mobile and a huge full size van. we have the awd version which is a must in chicago.the word is that chevy will drop this van in 04,we are hoping that is not the case. we would definately buy another one.

Review 4 of 182 , from Greencastle, PA USA

Price Paid:  $24000.00 from Hick's Chevrolet

Strengths:
see above

Weaknesses:
none unless your a penny pincher

Summary:
This was my second new Astro the other was a 93 model. I like the fact it's got plenty of power and rides like a car. If you can't justify the additional gas due to more power and plenty of space this ones not for you. I've had no problems and would recommend the Astro to anyone. I've seen families of five on vacation using the Ford and Chrysler models and they look like their in a sardine can, not with the Astro.

There's not one I haven't driven but if you're going to use a van for it's intended use with 5 or 6 people this ones hard to beat.

Review 5 of 182

Price Paid:  $18000.00 from A Bar None Dealershi

Year / Model Reviewed:
2002 Astro LT

Strengths:
Great power for a mini van. Huge amounts of space. The ONLY one you can get in America with rear wheel drive. Comes i AWD. Based on a long time proven platform. Visibility is great. Maintenance is easier than a FWD Minivan. Great rear door system.

Weaknesses:
Body roll in the corners (feels worse than it really is though). Seats are a bit too squishy and too high for a tall person. Repairs can be pricey, especially at the dealerships. The mileage is poor for a minivan but better than a full size van.

Summary:
A wonderful van, built with many of the same parts used in the S-10 / S-15 Chevy and GMC trucks and SUVs. Gobs of room and well built. The paint has held up perfectly but we have parked it in a garage (when home)for the past two years. It was my wifes car until we traded in my 97 Ford F150 for her 99 Buick Lesabre. We have used this van to pull a 3500Lb Trailer and it does pretty good. A little slow up the hills but it gets the job done. Ours is the AWD and it handles the snow awesomely. The ride (unloaded) is Cadillac smooth and if you want to give your rear seat passengers that "limo feeling" just take the middle seat out and they have four feet of leg room. I am 6'5" tall and the seat sits too high for me. I have to scrunch down to see the stop lights if I am first at the intersection. I will be taking the seat mount to a weldingbody shop soon to have it lowered a couple of inches. The funky lift-gate with the lower dutch doors were a little wierd at first, but I have learned to appreciate them after a couple years of using them in tight spaces. I don't really like calling it a mini van because there is very little that is mini about it. It's more of a mid-sized van.
