Tough van drives like a truck.

I love my 2002 Chevy astro van I bought my vehicle used and as the third owner, I can say with proper maintenance this van will not let you down. With all maintenance up to date, I have had absolutely zero issues with this vehicle, mechanically or otherwise. I got my van with 200, 000 miles on it and have since added another 100, 000+ roading tripping in the u. S. And the gas mileage on this vehicle on the highway is incredibly impressive. With the back of the van built out into a camper (extra weight) I was getting about 400 miles on one tank! My van is AWD drive and does amazingly on forest roads and more rough terrain. It honestly drives like a truck, with a great take off. I love this van!

Astro van, always reliable, always dependable.

Problems- the body style is not as modern as some as the other vans on the road. Performance- it has never had anything serious with it, always satisfied. Reliability- the Astro never disappoints when it comes to reliability. From an 8 hour trip to South Dakota, to a 15 minute trip to town, the Astro has always held up. Comfort- with its 8 passenger seating, this van can hold a family and more with plenty of room to spare. A large trunk also adds to the space available for family use. Features- since its an older van, it has little features that are head turning.

Reliable dependable rides a little rough but other parts make up for that.

The vehicle gets the job done. It stays together for the most part. Gets to point A to B. Rides a little rough but that keeps you awake in those early mornings. Gas mileage is decent could be a lot worse with these gas prices these days. One of the widows get stuck from time to time but just adds character. One thing for sure that it has a heater no worries on those cold winter days the heater is always there. It will about heat you out of it. One wheel bearing went out and it was a bear to change. No easy way of going about that job.

The actor van. Comfortable for short rides. Hellish on long rides.

The electronic lock stem has stopped functioning. The gas mileage is horrible at about 13 mph. The engine being a v6 doesn't give it any power. The van has DVD player in it but we lost the headphones long ago. The shocks do make it comfy but are horrible when making turns faster than 10 mph. The turning is smooth and easy to do.

Chevy Astro van is phenomenal!

My Chevrolet Astor is wonderful. It sits 9 people, has air conditioning through out, and the sound system can be heard from anywhere you sit. The seats are adjustable and you can even remove them for added room. It is been super reliable with only minor issues (battery needed replaced, etc. ).

Great brand of van and very reliable.

My van is great. 3 Row seating. Lots of room. Can take out two rows of seats. It has a tow package so that I can tow trailer. It has front and back heating and ac. My van is very reliable. Gets me to and from work or where ever I need to go. Would not drive any other brand of van.

The astro van is a great vehicle!

Very reliable and is good on gas. The only problems I have is the key has to face a certain way, it takes a longer for it to start, and the locks have to be done manually. I travel over a hundred miles in this van in a day and it does very well. It also charges your phone!

This van is great and sturdy.

It's a good, study van. Was in a accident on the front end and has got almost no damage. It carries our whole family of 2 adults and 4 kids. All in all we have had almost no issues with it. Had a few things break right after we bought it used from a dealership.

Very spacious, there are 4 children, 2 in car seats, 3 adults, and we've done road trips more than 500 miles. Good gas mileage, roomy inside and comfortable.

We got our van used with under 80,000 miles, in the year 2010, which our van's year is 2002. Our van is very good, not much major problems and it still runs good. I would purchase another van made by Chevrolet again.

Very reliable, dependable, lots of seating.

It is very dependable. Has lots of room. Very reliable. Has over 300,000 miles. Has some minor flaws. Able to take the back seats out for more room. Has a tow hitch package.

- Helen K

Not enough foot room to be comfortable.

Considering the year, I would say it has served us well. I do wish there was more room in the front for my feet and purse. Love all the room in the back.

- Joyce B

It was inexpensive and I can get where I need to go.

Well, it's a used vehicle. I like that I can get from point a to point b. I don't like that the air conditioning doesn't work right.

- Martha L

Perfect for a large family

Our astro van has been perfect for our family plenty of room but can remove the seats and have plenty of room to move stuff.

It can hold lots of people and the DVD player still works.

The car is old. The gas mileage is horrible(13pmh) and no modern features such as Bluetooth or GPS.

- Matthew B

That we can go basically anywhere with it. Whether it is for fun or otherwise, it is a great vehicle to get around town.

Spacious for at least 7 people. Besides the AC not working, there isn't anything bad about the van.
