The first one I bought was a 1995, drove it 109,000 miles, the transfer case went, replaced it for $2300 then traded it for a 2004 model. It is now 2008 and I have 51,000 miles and need a new transfer case. Both vehicles had electrical problems with the 'check engine soon' light, numerous brake repairs and each needed idler arms and torsion bars. I love the van tho and today when my mechanic told me to junk it because I needed a transfer case and a brake hub and a speed sensor, I said no. But, now, I need to find a more reliable vehicle that will carry and do all the family stuff that my van does.

Good Van

Our family expanded so we bought this van with 34k miles for a great price. We travel home 3 to 4 times a year (1000mi round trip) and it runs like a charm. No problems. I feel safe when my wife is alone with the kids on trips. Love the rear air and towing capacity

Good solid van

The size of this van cannot be beat. I LOVE my Astro Van, but I have had the van in for warranty work 9 times for what we thought was the transmission, which was replaced, the accelerator was stuck, and a variety of other engine- transmission problems. I am still in a rental and waiting for a diagnosis. I owned a 1992 Astro and had 150,000 miles on it and never had a problem. Mixed feelings if I would ever buy another.

My Chevy Astro AWD ROCKS!!!

I got myself a 2003 Chevrolet Astro AWD LS and it has enabled me to do things I've always dreamed of,I found myself traveling with my loved ones safely and comfortably in this Vehicle, so I may be a bit biased, but I still enjoy washing the damn thing and looking at it as well. P.S. they are also great for dates!!!

Thank You GM

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.

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.

LOVE my Astro !!

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 :)

GM take a hint.

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.

a class of its own

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 !!

very satisfied-on #4

I just bought my 4th Astro van, starting back in 1986.They are super reliable and just the right size for both doing an antique buss. or family use. A very rugged vehicle with good towing cap. All have had over 200k mi. on them. My 96 has 260k on it and still going strong.

Best Vehicle in 3 classes

If your looking for a SUV, truck or mini-van this is it except better. It's all of the above. Plenty of room for cargo and people. It tow's up to 5000 lbs(AWD version)and seats 6 people without feeling cramped, 8 for those short trips. The LT version provides a luxury feel to this "mid size Van". I never driven a more stable vehicle on snow,water and ice (again AWD). Our initial intention was to buy a larger SUV (smaller SUV's are no comparison) and when we looked at overall interior space, power and fuel economy we became ASTRO owners and yet saved about 10,000 dollars.

Love the AWD.Prefer over 4WD.It's the only minivan that my labrador fits in. Would like more leg room up front, available DVD roof mount and moonroof would be nice. Back seat a monster to remove. Need to modify power window switches. My cat closed the window on my neighbor's hand!

a good truck

Lacks cramped room of the smaller vans (ventures, caravans, aerostars, etc.). More room, more power.

We purchased a used 1991 Astro in 1993 and have put 160,000 trouble free miles on it.We pulled a travel trailer with it,including many trips to Florida,and Kentucky.I have done all general maintenance work on it,and never have had to have it in a shop for repair.In December 2003 we bought a 2001 AWD Astro that we really find very useful with having five children.And we still have that 1991!

I have had 3 Astro Vans and I find them to be very built very reliable very dependable and The most confortable Mini Vans on the street. But trying to find one anymore is becoming very difficult. Is GM not making them any more and why. It seems that all the dealers in the area dont have any in their inventory and dont seem to want to get any WHY ?

Minivan it is not...

I would have to disagree with Edmunds on the "dated" Astro/Safari vans. Are they the newest design? No. Do they still sell units? Yes. This van is not a mini van. Find me a competing Japanese unit that can tow 5400 lbs! This is a towing vehicle that can also seat 6 in style, and 8 with comfort. And you can park it in a mall parking space with a minimum difficulty. It doesn't handle like a minivan because it isn't. Its a 1/2 ton pickup with a big cabin for people. It really is in a category by itself. When mine reaches 200K miles, I'll go buy another one.

Mr. Edmonds ought to speak for himself. I'm on my second ASTRO and it is perfect for my driving/hauling needs. When this one wears out, I'll get another.
