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.

Design of sliding door is not well done because door will not automatically lock into place, like in other van doors. Contacted dealer. *akconsumer states; if parked on a hill front end down, door can close by itself without warning. Also, vehicle experiences loss of braking power, traction, on wet/bumpy roads.
