1996 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

This is my 2nd Suburban and I'm pleased with it. Its comfortable for my 6'3" frame, roomy for my family and their friends, and a great all-around vehicle. The Vortec 5.7 is a reliable engine developing sufficient power for towing a mid-size pop-up camper with fully loaded cabin. Fuel economy varies with speed and throttle finesse, but ranges from 12.5 around town to 21 on the hwy. See "Suggested Imrovements" for my complaints.

Favorite Features

extended road trip comfort, looks, 4x4 traction, around town drivability.

Suggested Improvements

Needs stronger brakes, and a recall for the coolant loss from the intake manifold. These are well known and documented problems that can be fixed, but GM refuses to acknowlege. Their execs need to do a work/study program at Honda or Toyota or Nissan.
