1997 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD


After owning two GM trucks since 1990,
I talked my wife into buying a burb to
haul around our four kids. We bought
it used with 62k on it. After only a
few thousand miles I noticed the auto
trans was shifting rough. It turns out
the valve body(inside trans)was the
culprit. The repair was $700. This
burb will flat out roll down the
highway-keeping it under 70 IS a
problem.We use the 4wd daily to get up
our steeeep gravel driveway. It is
time for new brake pads,(and rotors I
would guess), due to a pulsing feeling
during hard braking. Better fuel
economy than either of 2500 model
pickups 13-18mpg vs. 17-20mpg.

Best Features

huge interior, powerful truck, looks great

Worst Features

heavier duty brakes on 1500 models, no such problem on either of my 2500 pickups- auto trans needs improving, again both my pickups were/are manual shift, needs a cdplayer!!
