Worth the price


During the first month I owned it, a rubber boot had to be replaced on one of the front drives.

General Comments:

I have the AWD option with the tow package and the 373 gears. I just got back from vacation where I towed my travel trailer approx 1000 miles. This trailer weighs about 5000 lbs when loaded, mine was loaded. The Astro was up to the job of towing my trailer through the Adirondacks Mts in New York State with no issues. Not bad for a 6 cylinder, although there were many a few time I wished I had another 100 hp/ 100 lbs torque.

This van is great in the snow. The dual a/c is great and this is a nice vehicle for a family of 5.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
