Suburbans are junk
By fdl on


1997 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD


Worst vehicle I have ever owned. I've
written Chevrolet letters and they
don't even respond. The transmissions
in these vehicles are defective and GM
just ignores their customers. I will
never own a GM vehicle again! Do
yourself a favor and spend more on
vehicles that have high quality and
reliability ratings.

Best Features

Engine always starts. Plenty of room for family.

Worst Features

Too many to list, but here's a few: Transmission shifts rough. Water pumps are unreliable. Suspension needs improvement. Body Hardware (door handles, mirrors, trunk release). Improve Leather seat quality. Oil gaskets need to last longer - I've repaired oil leaks 4 times.
