1996 Chevrolet Suburban C1500 4dr SUV

Review

We're on our 5th Alternator. We also went through 3 batteries before those problems were resolved. Alternator left me stranded in the California deseret once and left my wife stranded three times locally. The current one on the vehicle is dying as we speak. Fenderwell and area had to be sandblasted and repainted shortly after purchase to repair acid damage. Other than that we have had a pretty good experience. We travel to Colorado from South Texas every year and other than one breakdown we have had good luck. A/C seems to only blow on passenger side vents. Good large vehicle except for reliability problems

Best Features

Ease of replacing Alternator. Takes about 15 minutes, even if you have only a ratchet and minimal tools.

Worst Features

Be honest, tell people you have a problem with the Batteries and are working to resolve it.
