1999 Chevrolet Suburban SUV K1500 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Bought truck for room and reputation. We've not had major problems other than water pump at 76K. Biggest dissappointment has been resale value. Chevy offers too many discounts and incentives. It kills owners ability to get rid of their products. Maybe they should reconsider retail pricing. Also, the Pewter paint is hard to maintain. Transfer case weeps oil when not used frequently. Poor suspension component quality.

First and last Sub for me

Review

On the positive side this SUV has good power and tows fairly well but upkeep is getting expensive. At 60k miles replaced rearend (started out as a roar from a wheel bearing), 75K miles Transmission rebuilt (broken planetary gears and bad bearings). While in the shop for the trans. Intake starts leaking coolant. These repairs along with three altenators before 76K miles makes me believe that Chevy has a problem. I will not buy another one, might lease one and turn it in before things go bad!

Beware of Suburban engines!

Review

I bought my '99 1500 4WD a year ago used. It has 83,000 miles now and the mechanic just told us it needs a BRAND NEW ENGINE for $2,000! Both head gaskets are shot because they are made of plastic in the Suburban engines. Our mechanic has seen this problem before with them. He's seen some die at under 50,000 miles! All late model Suburban engines use the plastic head gaskets according to him. BEWARE of Suburban engines!

Very Poorly Built Vehicle

Review

Vehicle quality leaves much to be desired... so much so that I would caution any potential Chevy/GM/Suburban buyers against purchasing. Vehicle has only 50K miles and already has left my wife stranded on 3 separate occasions (we're on 3rd alternator and have had to replace various electronic components (all at considerable cost). Bottom line, Chevy advertises it's trucks as built like a rock... well, if they were building rocks they'd be O.K... unfortunately, automobiles are complicated machines that should be provided a higher level of engineering and quality that Chevy has provided to it's products.

Good for Intended Purpose

Review

I bought the Suburban after fully thrashing our Previa minivan in places that it wasn't designed for, and to that end, the Suburban does great. However, here are a few trade-offs you should be aware of and willing to live with. Everything works - sort of: the interior trim rattles when you drive over rough roads (random plastic bits break off), the wipers do funny "dances," wind noise through front doors, noisy at highway speeds, and the seating/cargo arrangement is limiting.

2nd and Last Suburban

Review

It's amazing that such a huge vehicle has such little interior room for second and third row passengers. Our 1993 model is much more comfortable, even though the new one is fully loaded. It handles like a lumbering moose. We decided to put a new engine in the old car and trade in the newer one on a better quality car that also has higher gas mileage. Yeah, pretty much we should have waited for the 2000 model, but a roadtrip to Yellowstone was calling for a new car. The 2000 model might be better, but we're getting sick and tired of the cheap materials, shoddy build quality and unreliability of GM cars. Lexus here we come.
