I purposely looked for a 2 wheel drive Suburban and was fortunate enough to find this one. The previous owner kept it in immaculate condition and repair....I purchased it for $6000 and was very happy to purchase at that price. I've used it to move my daughter, my mother, my nephews, and friends. I've trailered Harleys to several events and this truck just kepts getting better with time. I currently have 142,000 miles on it. On the road towing at 65-75 I get 13-15 mpg, without towing 15-17 mpg. Around town 13mpg is about norm. I've thought of purchasing a newer model, but everytime I take a ride, that thought quickly leaves. Once you own one, watch out, Very Habit forming!
My K1500 has held up mighty fine over
the past 10 years. The 4x4 is strong,
and when hunting, the auto-lockers come
in handy so that I don't have to hop
out and do it myself. The ride is
comfortable for the freeway, the kids
can stay calm in the back, and there is
plenty of room in my un-tinted rig!
My model is the lowest base price
(almost!) we're talking, no tint, no
CD, no leather, no NADA! But the front
bench seat is probably one of my
favorite things about my burby, seating
9 comes in handy quite often!
Gas mileage of course, but what can you
do with a 5.7 V8, not much! Other than
that, a raised body of a few inches
would be nice without having to strap
on a body lift!
This a great vehicle to own, especially
with a family of 5 and a dog. Road
trips.....no problem. Just had the
water pump and alternator replaced at
120000 miles, everthing else is working
wonderfully. Smooth ride, this thing
cruises stealthly at 75 on the freeway,
a full tank of gas will get you nearly
650 miles on the freeway. Scheduled
maitinence and no misuse or abuse will
make a long lifetime for this massive
4 wheel drive is great, handling is
incredible for such a big rig
gas mileage, but what can you do with a
5000+ pounds vehicle. (shrug)
This 94 is a big improvement over my
87. Much better ride and control.
Quieter. More comfortable. Huge
interior, power to pull a
trailer.Bought used and couldn't choose
a color but very happy with silver
metalic, since it keeps the interior
much cooler in southern summers.
I love being able to slide 4X8 plywood
and sheetrock in the back. Very
comfortable ride and good control for a
tank like this.
Gas milage. I get 14-15. Will try K&N
air filters mentioned here.
