1999 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD

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!

Favorite Features

Room, ride is like a limo.

Suggested Improvements

Mechanically you are taking a great risk with a Suburban.
