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.

While vehicle was parked it caught on fire from the electical wiring harness. Also, firemen stated that fire came from wires where fuses were located. Contacted dealer. Vehicle at dealership. Certified technician stated the fire originated from a loose or improper connection at the firewall bulkhead wiring connector, the excessive resistance created by the loose connection caused the wiring insulation or its associated connector to overheat and melt.
