I've had this thing since 1989 and the
only problems it has ever given me are
the water pump broke at 160,000, a
bolt in a seat once broke, and a wire
from the battery to the starter
deteriorated. The combined cost of the
last two repairs was under $3.00. It
is a great, reliable, and functional
truck, and has power to spair. I
highly recommend this model
Picked up this ex-EPA vehicle on eBay
with 115k miles on it. Truck needed new
master cylinder (scary rust) and has
valve-train whump at low RPM. Blows
smoke upon cold start. Lift gate
refused to open as rear body mounts
rusted through at the tailpan and body
was drooping on the frame. Not many
body shops want to tackle such a repair
so check carefully for underbody rust
This automobile is superb. When driven
reasonably, the gas mileage is great
considering the size of the vehicle.
Custom built models are beyond
comfortable with the wide bucket seats,
nice console, and a spacious cabin.
Overall, this wagon is a very good
investment for a family on the go.
Best truck I have ever owned. Bought a 1 owner 1990 Suburban with a new motor, trans, transfer case, and axles. 10 year old paint job, no dents or bumps. Well kept and smart looking. I am very, very happy. Don't have anything negative to say. I will keep it forever!!!
