1999 Chevrolet Astro 3 Dr LS Passenger Van Extended Review
If space is your main requirement.
Not an idea van to use in cold, wet and windy weather area because it's boxy and rear wheel drive. Especially in snow country!
Not A Bad Value Consider The Van Lasted Us 12 Years (and Going), But Much More Choices Today. — Boxy and unattractive but roomy and great for travel/long distance driving (accept when gas price is high, like now). Can take a lot of abuse such as family with kids and all of the associated extra curricular activities (sports event, camping, moving items ...). I purchased this new and paid $22K for it. So far it's still going strong @ 176K. Original engine, power train, AC (no kidding!!). Replaced water pump about 5 years ago, radiator last year. Power windows went out just after 3 years on both sides. The repair cost $300/ea so we decided to go w/o for the pass 7 years and finally i replaced myself after fixing my other Olds with same issue. Surprisingly it was easy and cheap - $60 for both windows. I should had checked it out on the net long ago on how to replace it instead of wasting all these years without it.
Primary Use: Family transportation
