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.

Astro Van

When pulling into a parking spot the van stalled and wouldnt restart. It seemed the battery was totally drained so I went to replace it and found that the battery cables were scorching hot. When I installed the replacement battery it was at nightr so I saw sparks down on the lower portion to the battery harness. I then had the van towed into the dealership and they intially found no defects, told me the battery wasnt installed properly. I explained again the issue and they rechecked the electrical system and found no defects. I had repeated issues of the same type over the next two days so I took it back and they found shorted battery cables htis time. I wanted other Astro owners to know of the issue to see if they had run into the same type of problem. I am currently working to get my towing fee reimbursed by GM but they are being a little difficult at this point.
