1999 Chevrolet Suburban SUV C1500 LS 4dr SUV


Review

Bought this SUV with 83K miles at 4 yrs old. Only major problem we had was a fuel pump/filter that died while on vacation--yuck! Mechanic said it happens to 1/2 of these beasts after 100K. Other normal maintenance and tires used, but nothing else to report. Besides the 16 MPG, we love this SUV. Looking into conversion to bi-fuel on propane or gasoline to save money in the long run.


Favorite Features

Power, space, comfortable ride


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy, slight chasis squeek in bumpy conditions.

Review

Purchased three years ago at 70,000 from individual with all receipts, maintained exclusively by Chevy dealer. ALL scheduled maintenance is faithfully done, and we keep it looking clean & new. BUT, since reaching 90,000 miles, something breaks about every week. In last two years, we have replaced the transmission, all 8 fuel injectors, head gasket, radiator, water pump, alternator, fuel pump, and A/C compressor. Pass-side rear window doesn't work. Power locks quit working last week. A truly sad example of poor quality & reliability throughout. It's comfortable & great for interior capacity & towing, but we've bought the car twice due to the repair expense. Definitely don't recommend

Review

This car has it. It gets 18 mpg highway. For a large SUV, that's not half- bad. It's great because it has that old boxy look- like it's supposed to. I hated the 2000 makeover,so this one was right for me.


Favorite Features

5.7, 295 HP V-8, leather seats, CD changer.

Review

We did a lot of shopping around, and we love our Suburban, no turning back. Great vehicle for the family and nice to drive. Yes it likes gas, but we find it pretty good as we had a truck before this. The room is worth every penny1


Favorite Features

Seating and all goodies that this truck has, LT model and much more. Wife loves the power and heated seats on the passenger side.


Suggested Improvements

Better fuel economy
