I love this truck! It had 42,000 miles when I bought it in 1995. It has served my family well with many weekend trips and week-long vacations. Plenty of room to spread out and for luggage. It's a good work truck too. Carrying full sheets of drywall is no problem. It uses about .5 quart of oil between changes every 3000-4000 miles. Maintenance is below average. AC has been recharged twice and is currently on it's third summer since the last and blowing very cold. Shocks were replaced at 120000 and rides/handles great. This Suburban is a smooth cruiser at 65.
Shiny red & dark gray-silver paint. Visibility. Handling (for a truck). Comfort on the 10hr drives.
I found this immaculate all original garage kept suburban with underbody and inner panels all rust proofed I purchased from older gentleman who claimed he never drove it in the rain. I use this vehicle for road trips .I refreshed all fluids and replaced every out dated part.I'd drive it anywhere and have already.I treat this vehicle with love!!And turned down $12000.00 for its resale! I will keep this for as long as I can ,they are just not made this good anymore. Note... after 1994 GM downgraded its interiors quality on these vehicles interior .so this is rare and I love it.
Bucket seats with armrests, tail gate pwr driver seat,awesome ride and fuel economy,awesome Blue cloth interior that looks new,powerful engine 128 mph ,no third row seats.rear a/c, no rust or corrosion anywhere, awesome color scheme ,same as the pic above believe it or not Blue and white SLE package
headlamps, I will upgrade but mind you the originals are not discolored or faded just a poor design for that era.
Bought in 2001 from original owner with 118K miles. Put in new transmission at 156K, and other minor usual maintenance items. Engine still runs strong. Hauls all of our stuff on vacations, and decent gas mileage for a large SUV. Usual GM fit/finish issues when it come to the cheap plastics and door panels. Otherwise, its been a great truck. Will eventually replace with something similar.
Room for everyone and gear, unlike in mini-vans. repairs have been minimal. easy to maintain. Large safe vehicle for the mean streets of Interstate 95.
The cheap plastic interior parts. (much improved in new models.) Replaceable radio.
The Chevy Suburban is the best vehicle
that I have driven of all vehicles that
I had had. My next Subburban will be my
4th one and will continue to buy a
suburban unless I happen to try
something new which is highly unlikely
at this point in time.
Size and protection

The power she has and the fuel economy
she gives me concidering all the power
aand weight for the 5.7 litre.
tail gates , I see to many barn doors
A better jacking system, the present
sissor jack put the person changing a
drivers side flat in danger of peril, I
suggest a push button 4 post hydraulic
jacking system with a self leveling
system for uneven touraine
I purchased this 1992 C1500 HD Suburban
in 2000, and have been impressed with
the longevity that Chevrolet has built
into this model. I have put over
100,000 miles on it in less than 4
years, and have done regular
maintenance on it myself. I replaced
the alternator three times, and finally
went with a lifetime warranty on the
latest one. I also had the transmission
replaced at 136,000, but that was
because of my bad driving habits
(towing a loaded trailer up and down
hills in O/D)...
The fold down second seat, and the
ability to haul 4x8 sheets of material,
along with an extension ladder inside
the burb without leaving the rear doors
Make more 1992-1996 used Suburbans
available with less mileage, so that I
can buy another!
