Print this page Notes: The 2001 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 2001 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.

2001 Chevrolet Astro Van Owner Comments

Astro Van 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The electric windows on my GMC Astro van are failing to go up or down after one use. I put the window down at a toll booth to pay the toll and the window will not go back up. During the cold weather and rain I consider this a safety hazard. Every GMC product I have owned eventually gets this problem.
