1997 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

We bought the Suburban for several reasons. First, it can easily haul my wife and I and our three children and still give us a third row seat as well as cargo room. Second, it is a very safe vehicle. Third, it can haul our family, our camping gear and our pop-up camper with ease. This is the main reason we didn't go with a minivan. Fourth, the powertrain is reliable. The entire truck has been reliable ever since we bought it. We did buy used because, like many vehicles, this truck loses value too quick to warrant paying for a new one. This truck was four years old and in great shape and we picked it up for about 45% of the cost for a new one.

Best Features

Big and bold look. It commands respect on the road. Tall people like my wife and I can sit in and have plenty of room even in the third row. Towing power is great even with the gas V8. It is easy to maintain, easy to work on and easy to upgrade and tune.

Worst Features

Please GM, bring the diesel back! Other than that, a CD player should be standard.
