"I bought my Astro Van in 2006 had very low mileage and was in storage for most of the 90's. Very dependable starts and runs great except for the anti-lock brake module needs replacing (can be used). I have use my van for hauling my 17'foot aluminum boat to many boat launches with never a problem, getting in or out of the water. The best feature of all is that when it snows never ever have had to put chains on, out preforms a lot of rigs that on stuck along the roads. I wish Chevrolet would still be building this Astro Van. AWD is a must now for any car I will be buying in the future."
"This is my 6th Astro van. The first one had around 750000 miles on it before she died. The others have been in wrecks and not once did I get hurt. The engine parts are cheap and easy enough that I can work on the engine myself and I am a grandma. Unfortunately in '94, that was the last year for the 4.3L. I believe after that they only have the vortec? engine which most parts are not interchangeable between the 2 and the vortec only has one injector. I used all of them for long distance deliveries and drove thousand of miles and not once have I had to have then towed. Great ride, plenty of room and has 2 bench seats and extremely dependable."
"I paid $800 for this van 6 yrs ago. Other than regular maintenance items there have been no major costs. This is the most dependable vehicle I have ever owned. The old girl uses no oil whatsoever after 225,000 miles! I love this van and have recommended them to everyone. My mother even bought a 92 model. She loves hers too. Always starts and runs. Nothing but Chevy in my driveway. Period. They truly are the Heartbeat of America."
"I paid $800 for this van almost 3 years ago, put $400 in it in repairs since then and she still runs like a champ. How many people can say they only paid $1200 for a vehicle over a 3 year period.Won't give her up until it turns to dust no matter how old she gets or how nice the new ones are. I might add a new chevy to the family though..."
"The only negative to this van is there is no driver side sliding door and the front passenger legroom is a little cramped. It has been an excellent van with 3 kids participating in 6 sports all over!"
"I bought an used ASTRO Van Chevrolet passenger for $395 bucks. I got it tuned up and replaced remanufactured power steering. The rest of the van works in excellent condition, mechanically and its very reliable for all kinds of applications.
1988 van drive stronger transmission for hauling and work commutes."
