I WOULD BUY IT AGAIN by NOT A CHEVY MAN on 03/25/2013. Trim: 1998 Chevrolet Astro, Owned 10 years.
Pros: Excellent multi- purpose vehicle, AWD is a beast in snow/mud with room for 8. Need an inexpensive tow vehicle? This is it. Cheap parts, common, easy to repair & durable 4.3 liter engine.
Cons: Front end will wear tires if not serviced. Use only GM/DELCO engine parts (fuel pump/cap/rotor).
Overall review: Owned 7 years, no major problems with engine, trans, AWD, or AC.

Multi tool for the guy who needs space, power and AWD by George on 10/15/2012. Trim: 1998 Chevrolet Astro, Owned 10 years.
Pros: Actually a van on a truck frame with a truck v6 that has power as opposed to a mini-van that could not tow a poodle. Good power and the All Wheel Drive works excellent even the gas millage is decent if you keep it below 70mph.
Cons: Not too much to dislike but the ignition coil will go and won't start on rain days when it does.
Overall review: Super multi puropse vehicle too bad they not longer make these as their is nothing close to it on the market today and small trucks are gone as well.
