1996 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

If you buy a '96 Suburban, you won't want anything else. However, it is extremely expensive. First, you might get 14 mpg. Have you ever used a gas card and had to use it twice at the same fillup (42 gal tank, Gas card stops at $75.) Next, prepare to spend a minimum of $2000/yr. I did the research here and bought it anyway. Have had to replace brakes, master cylinder, booster fuel pump, timing belt tensioner, alternator, and can't remember what else. A minimum of $400 whenever you take it in to the shop. However, can't seem to let it go.

Favorite Features

Size is awesome, great for families. Pulls trailers very well. 42 gallon tank means at least 550-600 miles between fillups on hwy. However, also means $120 to fillup

Suggested Improvements

Not very dependable. At least $400- $500 whenever something goes wrong. Improved gas mileage would be good too. 12-14 mpg
