1997 GMC Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Good solid truck for the most part. Two issues in the last 57,000 miles, first it lost the 2-3 clutch pack in the transmission at 121,000 but the previous owner had done a lot of towing. Second I lost a fuel pump at 154,000 miles but that was my own fault for not changing the fuel filter as often as required (filter was pluged). It took me longer to drain the tank than it did to replace the pump, which cost $110. I have a 32' travel trailer and 4 kids and overall this has been a good vehicle. Mileage is poor, but there is a limit to what you can expect from a 5300 pound box.

Favorite Features

Lots and lots of room in a comfortable cruising vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

Newer Suburbans get better mileage and are more comfortable.
