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

Sep 242007

Astro Van 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,010 miles


While fueling my vehicle at a gas station, I pumped about $3 worth of gas into my 1/8 tank. After it reached $3 a loud hissing sound came from the filling neck of my van (not the actual gas station pump) and a large amount of gasoline sprayed me on the stomach and upper legs. There was no sign that this was going to happen. I am still awaiting word on getting repair authorized. It is my understanding that there is a tsb regarding the fuel system on the 2003 Chevrolet Astro van.
