2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
We bought our LT brand new and now have 137k miles on it. Still runs great and we have had very few problems. We have replaced the water pump and brakes and the rear AC drain got clogged and flooded the back. Have experienced some electrical gremlins too but our LT has had a propensity to heal itself! The engine is strong and doesn't burn oil (we have maintained it well) and it is still tight after 137k miles. Leather seats are showing their age, but also have four kids! I expect that we will start having repairs based on miles and age, but knock on wood - so far so good. This is third Suburban - my dad drives a 99 with almost 200k on it.
Great for long trips, roomy, comfortable, the DVD player and Bose system are excellent, great pulling our nearly 5,000 lb boat. Hope to get 200k out of her before we retire her.
Gas mileage is not great but this thing is huge! Electrical system is questionable but knock on wood, things are working right now. Will certainly consider buying another when we retire her.
