Print this page Notes: The 2002 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 2002 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.

Astro Van 6-cyl

  • 133,600 miles


Recently I took my van to a dealer because the knob on the A/C fan melted off it cost 600 dlrs in repairs the HVAC knob had melted off also the connector and resistor had burned out. The entire wiring harness was melted together. No fuse blew to prevent his form happening we are not sure what caused this to occur. My concern is that this could have caused a fire in the dash while I was driving resulting in severe injury accident or even death. Please contact me if there was a recall I missed or if there is any information as to why this happened. Thank you for your time concern Chevy owner.
