2005 Chevrolet Astro 2WD Review
Bring Back The Asto — I have owned 6 Astro's the last being a 2005. I have used thm as my work vehicle with all of them going wll over 200,000 mile and never had a engine or transmission problem. Did experience rear end problems on 2000. On 1995 I sold it and was told it had over 400,000 miles and still going. Here is and update from my original review the 2005 has experienced two major repairs. Transmission was rebuilt at 219,000 and a full differential replacement at 227,000. I now have 273,800+ and still going.
Owner for 2 years, 0 months
Miles Driven per Year:35,000
Pros: Great towing power, strong engine
Cons: Passenger cabin space could be bigger.

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

One Of The Best
All I Like About The Astro Is That You Can Trust It To Go Out With The Family Or With Friends. One Thing This Has Is That You Can't Really Have Much Cargo Space. To End This In Less Words Is That I Li... Read More
