I would recommend a Astro, I love those vans. My mom had one and it was practically bulletproof. Just need basic oil changes and tuneups. We had a Explorer conversion, and we drove the hell out of it. We went to Canada at high speeds in that van and to Myrtle Beach, Florida, etc.
I would not hesistate to get a Astro if I wanted. But my car is runnning perfectly so no need to replace it. I would like to have a AWD version, now combine that bulletproof reliablity with the superior traction of AWD. Now, that'* nice.
I would customize mine.
