Summary:

Good reliable transportation without any major problems. Chevrolet at its best

Faults:

Captain's chairs recline levers have failed on both middle seats. Electric windows on both sides failed at about 130,000 miles.

General Comments:

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.

Summary:

Worst car in North America - Garbage

Faults:

Armrests replaced.

HVAC replaced.

Multiple bulbs replaced.

Brake rotors warped.

Radiator blew.

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.

General Comments:

Absolutely garbage.

Front floor has humps.

Plastic accelerator.

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.

Summary:

A great vehicle for long distance travel

Faults:

Overhead console required a warranty service due to a loose wire and a tail light fuse had to be replaced. Both were covered under the warranty.

General Comments:

A very comfortable vehicle for long trips. Good lumbar support in the seats and quiet inside.

Steering and road handling are excellent.

Gas mileage has exceeded expectations (about 20mpg highway and 16/17 city).

It is very stable and gives a secure feel when towing. The all wheel drive gives a sense of security on slick roads.

The only improvement I would like to see is a driver's side rear sliding door.
