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.

Oem carpet covering the interior engine cowling is curling up, causing it to interfere with the travel of the gas pedal. Gas pedal cannot come back to its resting position, causing the vehicle to continue to accelerate.

His site was sent to us and we are concerned with the discrepancies in the mileage on the odometer on a van we made a down payment on to buy. The numbers just don't match and there is a period of 7 months van cannot be accounted for. The dealer said he had no information on previous owner, although in Nov. 2002, the same dealer changed oil, then 7 months lapse. Can you help us ? the van is a year 2000 Astro and we are trying to find out about the mileage. Thanks
