2005 Chevrolet Astro Extended RWDReview
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

Pros: Great towing power, strong engine
Cons: Passenger cabin space could be bigger.
