Mine has been good to me

1997 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD


I like mine, it has been a reliable companion. I have had to replace wear items, but nothing unusual, and it has never left me stranded in 6 years and 110K miles. I have no complaints about its reliability, and I am a Toyota salesman! Been off road way more than the average Suburban, and never broke down or got stuck. It has been coast to coast, and gets 21- 24 highway. Worst highway mileage I ever got was 19 MPG before I had it tuned up. I will get another of this generation, a Gold 1999, when I return to living in the mountains. They are easy to maintain yourself. I only have used my '97 off road and in the winter, but I bet I could put a million miles on one.

Best Features

Cargo room, headroom, looks, 4WD. Mine has the locking differential in the rear, so I rarely need to engage the 4WD in less than a foot of snow.

Worst Features

The interior door handle broke this winter at 10 below. It was made from powdered metal. Should be made from better steel for longevity.
