1994 Chevrolet Astro Overview

Chevrolet made airbags standard on its 1994 Astro minivan (on the driver's side). The front and side doors were reinforced with side-door guard beams. The 1994 Chevy Astro also introduced a brake light above the rear window. Prior models emitted blue smoke upon cold startups; valve-guide seals introduced for this model helped diminish this problem.

The 1994 Chevy Astro has 6 cylinders, 3 doors, and 5 seats. It gets about 15 mpg in city driving and 20 mpg in highway driving, slightly less if the car has all-wheel drive.

Owner reviews are mixed. Most agree that it's powerful, with plenty of pickup, and roomy. Some say it has a great ride, while others say the ride is not comfortable for long distances; some say it's very reliable, while others disagree.

Other complaints include its looks, poor legroom and failure of door handles, automatic door locks, and the fuel pump; also the transmission tends to need attention or replacing frequently. The steering can develop extra play as the car ages. A cautionary note: One user reviewer said torsion bars on the front wheels can fail.
