1990 GMC Suburban R1500 4dr SUV


Review

I purchased this car new from the factory 19 years ago, have over 200,000 miles on it with only expected repairs, one new transmission. Minimum rust, however paint peeled on this model. Seats nine with bench seats. If the new ones were this good, I'd buy one. Gets 14 MPG according to gov. website but I always felt I got more. New ones are only small increase. Love to drive it. Kids loved it... held seven of them! They don't make them like this anymore. Hang on to them as long as possible. Worked well for towing. Size makes curb parking harder but I got used to it. If you can find a good one, buy it!


Best Features

Nine seats, rear AC, no radio! All plastic interior which I wash out with a hose. Love my split rear door. Ordered that special. Not found in all cars back in 1990.


Worst Features

Too bad there was no air bags or head rests but otherwise perfect!

1990 GMC Suburban R2500 4dr SUV


Review

A bulletproof machine that was perfected near the end of its design run. Well mannered and still capable 16 years after I bought it. Suprisingly easy to park. Worlds apart from the passenger vehicles GM was dumping on us back then. Only advice- keep your all your engine gasket seals fresh or they will shrink and leak.


Best Features

Smooth and quiet with plenty of room. Frame integrity, firewall and weatherstripping quite good and rust-resistant. Interior is still dry.


Worst Features

Access to rear storage is awkward at times. Rust will appear where water and salt have lingered on exposed quarter panels and iner fender wells. Power locks not as effective as vehicle ages.

Review

I have owned this truck for over 3 and a half years and it is a dream. What a solid truck and the preformance is like that of a new one but without all the new cramped computer engine stuff.


Best Features

The handleing is my favorite feature.


Worst Features

It could be a little softer ride.
