Print this page Notes: The 2003 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 2003 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.

2003 Chevrolet Astro Van Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 092004

Astro Van 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,500 miles


Driveline vibration - 40 - 60 mph can be felt in seat and floor - dealer has replaced tail shaft bushings on first visit (2 days) returned vehicle with same problem - dealer installed dampeners on rear differential housing and rear leaf springs. (5 days) problem still persist. Dealer has ordered a dampener for exhaust pipe, has not been installed yet will call when part arrives. Dealer personel have been very polite and courteous.I feel they are trying to cover the symptoms rather than find the cause of the vibration?
