What an awesome site!

My 2005 Astro just had A/C bypass surgery thanks to you guys--I thought for sure it was a goner. $1500. for a new a/c compressor installed was just too much. Thanks to the info provided by your members, I was able to find someone to do the a/c bypass for $250!
This is the 3rd Safari/Astro van I have used for my business--my first was an '89 Safari, next was a '98 Safari, and this one, alas, my last, is an '05 Astro. I LOVE these vans and am really bummed they stopped making them. All three have been AWD passenger vans--i just took out the back seats, laid a sheet of luan in the back, and presto! A nice, comfortable, quiet, perfect-sized, AWD cargo van. I wish there was a way to get GM to start making them again!
Thanks for having a site like this--I wish I had found it two vans ago.
