Great Large Van, but have a factory defect with distributer-shaft gear by Highlander Toronto on 06/13/2008. Trim: 1997 Chevrolet Astro 2WD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: It has alot of power, and for a van its actually fun to drive. Not only is it powerful, but it can bet most common cars on take off because of its mass amount of tourq and its 220 hp. The 4.3 V6 is indistructible. you could make this thing air born and it would still drive without anyproblems except maby a wheel alignment because of how heavy the landing would be.
Cons: If your van is running kinda wrong "like sputtering or engine light at high revs such as highway driving" its probibly your distrubuter shaft gear that connects the axle to the crankshaft. that gear is deffective and will wear down and snap after about 10-12 years (like now).
Overall review: Put a cold air intake on it and it flys, and get upgraded fully insolated sparkplug wires because the are too close to metal objects and the charge will sometime not reach the engine bore, rather just jump to ground.

"best minivan ever" by Anferk33 on 12/21/2005. Trim: 1997 Chevrolet Astro 2WD, Owned 5 years.
Pros: This is my third Astro that I have owned. This minivan can practicly take you everywhere, it can haul my bikes, motorcycles, etc. I'm thinking in buying a new Astro next year. My other Astro had 250,000 miles and it still run strong.
Cons: It has the same fuel economy of a Hummer H3!!!!
Overall review: Very good minivan.
