Still a great truck
By Bullwinkle on
1993 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD
I bought used with 114,000 miles. Only major repair was the transmission replaced at no cost (previous owner had replaced it shortly before.) I drive it about 12,000 miles/year and it's very cheap to drive. I fix a few things on it each year, but it's much cheaper than my other cars (used Hondas which I finally gave up on.) Gas mileage is about 14 mpg which is great considering it's mostly around town. Still get 17-18 mpg on long trips, even with 199,000 miles on it, and it runs great. I'm 6'5" tall and can stretch my legs fully out while driving. It's like driving my couch. Finally with a 43 gallon tank, the range is incredible. My best is 720 miles on one tank (Jacksonville, FL to northern VA)
Great room, great ride, very quiet, huge gas tank, cheap to repair. 350 V- 8 is hard to beat. Tires wear forever (60,000 miles) Always starts easily. Great in the snow and for towing.
Improve the feel of steering and brakes- feels like a truck. Improve interior trim quality, and eliminate rattles.
