Astro Van 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles
I have a 1997 Astro, in the past 8 months the driver side window motor, windshield wiper motor and transmission have all been replaced. The transmission was replaced with 54,202 miles on it, which started giving us problems at about 53,000 miles. The dealership replaced both idler arms at 25,680 miles. Had seat belt chime fixed (recall), driver seat feels loose when stopping dealership claims to have tightened it, still feels loose. The van has always idled rough took it in 3 times for that and can't seem to fix that. Sliding door rattle they tried to fix that also still rattles. The gas pedal sticks when I take off or when I go in reverse which makes it impossible to take off smoothly. I had an Astro and a safari in the past and never had as many problems as I had with this one.

Chevrolet doesn't care about using cheap parts- after warranty they say trade it in.numerous things wrong with van and have talked to Chevrolet many times. Can't use back door of van, run out of gas, knobs fall of interior devices, asked Chevy to help since 37,000 and problems still happening as I go, can't afford to fix and can't afford to trade.
