ex-EPA eBay find
By Geres on


1990 Chevrolet Suburban V2500 4dr SUV 4WD


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
before buying.

Best Features

Vinyl floors and vinyl seats make it easy to hose out after carrying trash to the dump and recycling center.

Worst Features

If you intend to drive at night, be aware that this year's headlamps (mini 92mm x 150mm) are junk, and what is worse, they are *expensive* junk. This wasn't GM's finest hour so far as Suburbans are concerned. Be careful.
