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.

- the contact stated that 2000 Chevrolet Astro van had upper ball joint problems. The upper ball joints have been replaced twice. The contact stated that he felt this was a safety issue because the upper ball joints could separate, and the driver could lose control of the vehicle, causing a crash.
