I do know they are well taken care of, and yeah the highest being in the low 100 thousands, and the lowest in the 55 thousand range.

They have all their vehicles serviced(Quite frequently) at Budd & Company on rainier ave in seattle(I pass it every day for work, it is where I take my Astros) Which is a very good company, a little spendy but they are a AC Delco workshop, so they use all OEM replacements on these vans. Mike(owner of Budd & Co) told me that metro was pissed when they stopped making the Astros.

So if anyone is interested in these vehicles, know that they were very well maintained inside and out, that they are Greater Seattle(Washington) vehicles, that do not go over any mountain passes, and are mostly driven on the interstates here (I-90 & I-5), Probably only ever seen de-icer a couple of times in their life so they would have a very low rust content on the bottoms of the vans. I am sure they are selling off the vehicles because Metro has been cutting a lot of its spending. So they are probably on the chopping block.

If you are thinking of buying one, I would definitely say go for it, and while your out here in WA. Hit me up I would love to meet more AstroSafari lovers. If I had the money I would definitely pick me up one.
