Heart attack of America
By Airmike on


1997 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD


Where can I start, brakes inadequate
for this heavy vehicle- rotors always
going out - calipers replaced ,on the
3rd transmission - replaced fuel pump -
universal joint - alternator - starter -
water pump - heater control valve -
a/c evaporator - battery post problems -
fusible link - it now has 146000
miles, I have owned for almost 3
years , about $9000 in repairs.
Every time I think nothing else can go
wrong , it does.
If you own one of these I strongly
suggest joining AAA, they have towed me
3 times this year.
Don't get me wrong, I have a 86 K1500
truck and it is great, I guess I got a
Friday or Monday build.

Newer models have made significant changes - but I am not going to try one next time
