BIG disappointment

1998 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I've been a fan of CHEVY since my first car (68 Chevelle). But this Suburban has shaken my faith in the most reliable engine, the 350, ever built. First problem with the transmission at 10k miles, gear replacement. Then 4-wheel drive issues, when in 4-wheel HIGH or LOW the car feels like it is braking when turning the steering wheel; the dealership can't find the problem & said do not use the 4-wheel drive feature (makes sense?). More problems w/ trans. @ 45k miles - lost REVERSE. Since then - an exhaust manifold leak & a head gasket replaced (this SUV only has 53k miles on it). Now A/C problems. AGAIN I say - BIG disappointment!

Suggested Improvements

Chevy needs to decide if they are going to sacrifice their repeat business with previously happy GM owners for was has become an inferior product. Long term profit margins won't be pretty for this model if manufacturing & engineering doesn't improve.
