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.

Have taken back to dealer twice, they dont't understand what's going on, suppose to look into it and get back wtih me, this has been an ongoing problem since purchase of vehicle, have even told at one point I was crazy, didn't know what I was talking about until this last visit 7/2000 slider rattle was fixed however, front passenger door still rattles and the dashboard is splitting in front of my eyes, dealer has no answers will look into it. Please help I have small grandchildren that rely on my vehicle. I can't be worried about its saftey and watching this vehicle deteriorate before my eyes.

The problems wiht the electrical system and the front power train appear to be corrected. However, I still smell the scent of burning circuits. I am still struggling to get the rear power train taken care of.
