Mileage and Brakes for the 1999 K1500 Su
By Spoto on
1999 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD
Highway mileage seldom over 13-14mpg at
65 to 70mph. Brakes are very poor when
at a panic stop. There is split second
hesitation before brakes grab. First
brake pad replacement at 17000
miles,second at 34000 miles. Third row
seat too heavy and too difficult to
remove and replace.
Towing ability good. I tow a 10000lb
boat with no problem and it's rated for
a lot less.
Brakes need a recall to upgrade for
