1998 Chevrolet Suburban SUV C1500 4dr SUV


Review

I've loved this truck since I bought it. I've been hit 4 times in it, only one required major work and it still runs great and no one was injured. I still get 18 mpg in the city. The transmission tends to go out at 110,000 miles, I know of 4 people that it happened to. Water pump and heater control valve both started to leak around 140,000 miles. Currently have 150,000. The brakes I put on last about 20,000 miles, but the rotor only lasts about 2 or 3 break changes.


Best Features

LOTS of space even with 8 people, more than enough personal room with 6.


Worst Features

Highway gas mileage which has already been addressed by Chevy

Review

This has been a solid vehicle. We've pulled a 28 foot RV, which does pull pretty tough up some modest hills. Gas mileage pulling the RV is about 7 MPG. Without the RV, it seems to range from 12 to 16 MPG depending on temp and driving habits. Lots of interior room and we love the storage in the back behind the 3rd seat. The dash lights for the hot/cold have been out since we got it. The fan speed no longer works - its always on full blast. The engine has been solid and we have had good luck with it. There are still a lot of these on the road, a true testament to their durability.


Best Features

Great ride, safe, lots of pockets and interior storage, 1999 was the last year of the chrome bumper. 2000 and after have the cheap (but costly to replace) crash-friendly bumpers.


Worst Features

Gas mileage, it's not really sexy to look at, in 2000 they got rid of the rear barn doors which was a good choice.

Review

The Suburban of our family is the one we rely on and hauls the family and groceries. The mother of the home drives it and she thinks it is the best car out their.


Best Features

Strong and powerfull engine, great cargo capacity, hauls 2 families easily, great for fiting in from the country to the mall and more


Worst Features

cheap interior and plastics, windshield wipers act up, only 15 inch wheels should be upsised a couple of inches.

Review

If you need a large SUV, this is the one to get. Plain and simple yet with everything you need. It can carry 7 people comftorably. The gas mileage and fun to drive factors are horrible though.


Best Features

I don't know. Probably the large size (not always a good thing though).


Worst Features

Needs to be lowered an inch or two so the handling and gas mileage would increase.
