Utility at a price
By Jwelch on
1999 Chevrolet Suburban C1500 4dr SUV
The 1999 LS 2wd was our fourth Burb,
but the first one purchased new.
Replaced transmission at 41000. Seems
like new brakes every 16000 miles. My
biggest irritation has been a periodic
starting problem--probably 12 times so
far. It will decide not to start. You
turn the key and it sounds like a
normal start, except it does not
progress to idle. The illness can last
anywhere from 20 minutes to 3 hours.
Then, it starts and runs as if nothing
has been wrong. Typically, these
incidents occur when we're out of town.
The size has been great. We travel for
volleyball and both daughters have a
seat to sleep in. Sleeping is a great
activity for travelling teenagers!!
