Print this page Notes: The 2000 Chevy Astro Van has a solid reputation with very low complaint rates. The only problem now is finding one with low miles.

Not only is the 2000 Astro Van reliable, but since they were built on a truck powertrain, they can tow 5,500/5,000 lbs (RWD/AWD) -- almost double what other minivans can.

The Chevy Astro is mechanically identical to the GMC Safari.

Door handle on right rear dutch door of our 2000 Astro van broke suddenly when trying to open door. While the dutch door feature is operationally very handy, the door design always had a flimsy feel to it - so we always used great care when opening and closing. After it broke, we found the NHTSA #634576 with similar complaints, so felt obligated to add to your list.

My rear hatch door of my 2000 Astro van will not open. All of the locks on my van are not working as they should but at least I can use the inside door handles to get in and out. The hatch has no inside door release so in case of an accident I would never be able to get myself out of the back if that were the only way out. Also, if you are braking and hit a bump the brakes will not work. I have had several close calls because I could not stop the van because of a bumpy intersection and the brakes not holding.
