1997 Chevrolet Suburban C1500 4dr SUV

Review

Our Suburban has a little over 50,000 on it, mostly city miles. We pull a Coleman popup trailer with it when we go camping which doesn't seem to strain the engine at all, even climbing. Overall, we like the vehicle, however, we have experience our share of the quality problems mentioned by the other reviewers. The transmission went out at just over 42,000, the alternator went out, and the things seems to go through batteries every few years and the brakes are terrible. My transmission guy said that it should have lasted longer than it did, however, after reading the other reviews, I see I am not alone.

Favorite Features

Interior space. We have 6 in our family plus a dog when we go camping and everyone has plenty of space.

Suggested Improvements

GM, build a quality product if you expect repeat business. I know I probably will not buy another GM.
