    1999 Chevrolet Astro LS Extended RWDReview

    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

    Pros: If space is your main requirement.

    Cons: 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!

    The Astro Has Performed Above My Expectations. — Purchase Vehicle new in 1999. The vehicle has 138,000 miles and is now encountering issues I am not familiar with. The turning radius on these vehicles are awesome.

    Owner for 8 years, 6 months

    Miles Driven per Year:138,000

    Pros: Turning radius, roomy, reliable.

    Cons: Air conditioning and heating issues.

    A Great Van. Leather, Rear Air And Rear Radio. — 160000 miles and looses no oil between changes, runs like a new car. The only repairs have been common age related items, waterpump and alternator.

    If They Were Still Making These Van's I Would Buy Another One. By tinkerbellpixi

    I think this is a great little van, wish I could own another one. It can haul a large amount of dry wall or mulch. I can also haul a large amount of kids. It can tow a boat or camper as well. Read More
