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 driving at low speeds hydraulic antilock braking system does not operate properly which causes extended stopping distance. Also, vehicle won't start at various times.

Vehicle stalls when traveling! almost crashed with children in vehicle because of complete operational failure! vehicle restarts, however may stall at any time! I took vehicle to attendant shop as well as a Chevy shop and they both failed to find the cause. This is extremely dangerous and the problem must be dealt with accordingly.
