Sep 14, 2008 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: All around comfort. Removable seats that allow for so much room to haul things around.
Cons: wipers work selectively. Alternator went out.
The Bottom Line: I would buy another Astro because it has been the most awesome ride of my life, not to mention cargo space and ease of driving. GO CHEVY ASTRO!

I purchased my 1998 Chevy Aatro rear wheel drive van after borrowing a neighbors to transport my 5 step-children 140 miles round trip. I absolutely love the space in the van and the ride was so smooth for a van of this size. I have moved my entire ... read more

Original Owner of A Great Vehicle For Many Reasons

Feb 29, 2008 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliable, comfortable, powerful
Cons: Electrical system seems to be the weakness in ours. Rear-wheel-drive is tricky in the winter
The Bottom Line: A bit tougher than your average minivan, the Astro can handle the whole family and a trailer with no problem. Above all, it's reliable. I couldn't expect more.

We purchased our 1998 Chevy Astro Converstion new and it is still going strong at 149,000. It has great power for towing our camper and utility trailer. It has a comfortable, smooth ride that I would not expect of a vehicle with this much use. Ours ... read more

Hats off to GM

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: extremely reliable and a real heavy weight hauler that goes well in the snow
Cons: difficult hood latch , could use a manual door lock inside rear door
The Bottom Line: The Astro and I have been through many bad places... We always made it home safely. She`s a cheep date that puts out.

First off I`m a Ford person. This is one heck of a Chevy. I have the AWD cargo van model. It is stripped with am/fm, ac and no other options. I first noticed the value of this sherman tank in disguise during my first snow storm with it. All-season ... read more

Good but not Great

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Great pickup for a van its size, roomy, 80,000 km with no major problems
Cons: Gas milage, far from sexy, not easy to park
The Bottom Line: This is a family van; why someone would by this car who doesn't have a family boggles the mind. I recommend this van.

We bought this van brand new in late 1998. It came equiped with an acceptable V6 190 HP engine which can tow its fair share of weight. Interior is 2 front bucket seats (with lumbar support) and 2 bench seats which can seat 3 people each; altogether seats ... read more
