Super low mileage Astro

Super low mileage Astro

Postby vectrex11 [OP] » March 18th 2013, 6:20pm

Saw this clean Astro for sale outside of Cleveland. Super low mileage...suspiciously low actually, but it appears legit. Only downside is the van does appear to need some paint touch-up and may have issues arise from just having not being driven much and being a 1994 model...
Regardless, if I had more money to drop I might consider driving to Cleveland and picking it up. However, I just bought an 89' Astro that is super clean and so far I am happy with it...

29,000 miles, check out the front seats. several Astros I have owned with 3 times more miles had less wear on the seats. Unless the PO had the seats shampooed 4 times a week from the time they owned it. Hahaha. I have bought an 92 Astro with 82000 miles that was a DD and the seats had no wear you could see. Astro seats wear better than that.

Yeah, that was the one thing that caught my eye too. That is why I said it may be a little suspicious. My 89' Astro has less wear on the seats and it has 143,000 on the ODO. And this van it looks like its been sitting outside. Definitive paint wear, chips, dents, surface abrasion. But, knowing the weather in Cleveland, typical.

One thing to note...took another look at the pics and noticed there are some sizable dents or warped areas on the roof- as if this van was used as the playing court for a pick-up basketball game. With these things in mind...I would quickly reverse my decision based on the asking price. But who knows...maybe someone will like a roof that collects water in vast puddles.

Pesonally don't like (the colour combo) it seems very lowly equiped and over price. At that age a low mileage vehicle can be worse that one thats been used regularly.

Could the seats be from sun fade?

Never thought at looking at those before.
