Fit/finish and reliability should be better with a 20 year old design.

2000 Chevrolet Astro LS 4.1 liter from North America
Good reliable transportation without any major problems. Chevrolet at its best
Captain's chairs recline levers have failed on both middle seats. Electric windows on both sides failed at about 130,000 miles.
Having changed the oil at regular intervals, this vehicle has performed extremely well. With over 150,000 miles on the motor it is still running strong. There is a slight bump in the transmission lately and it most likely will need to be replaced soon, but the vehicle has experienced NO serious mechanical problems. I'm very happy with it and would probably purchase another one.

2000 Chevrolet Astro Max Package 4.3L OHV V6 from North America
Worst car in North America - Garbage
Multiple bulbs replaced.
Brake rotors warped.
Transmission still shifts abruptly.
Dash has a rattle.
Rear seats squeak.
Front end damage due to stones, that other vehicles don't seem to suffer from as badly (cheap paint job on the Astro?).
Engine coolant leaks.
Windshield wipers broke.
Rear door trim fell off, drivers side B trim loose.
Constantly having to tighten the rear swing doors.
Rear door latch fell off.
Sliding door lock seized, the list goes on.
Front floor has humps.
Goes through gas like crazy, revs its guts out to keep up with traffic.
Very poor interior materials.
Constant headaches: rear doors have exposed hinges, seats don't stay in place moving back and forth in their position while driving, head room is well below average, seat cushions are way too short, needless to say the complaint list is huge.

Does your Astro have a conversion package? I have learned that some conversion companies use cheap materials when trimming out both in interior and exterior. Your engine problems surprise me. I have a 1990 Astro that has gone 175,000 miles and never given me any problems other than the normal maintenance issues.
