Print this page Notes: The 2005 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 2005 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.

2005 Chevrolet Astro Van Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 192006

Astro Van 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,940 miles


2005 Chevrolet Astro van sustained minor front end damage in an accident and both front airbags only partially deployed. We've never seen airbags only partially deploy. The passenger side console split and that airbag is visible from the 1/2 to 1 inch separation of the seam in the console. The drivers side bag is more visible but clearly did not fully inflate. Consequences: We are concerned that this might be a defect in the vehicle and are concerned about future accidents in this type of vehicle - we have concerns about future liability that may arise. Correct failure: We will replace airbag sensor and airbags with manufacturer parts.
