1997 Chevrolet Suburban C1500 4dr SUV


Our Suburban has a little over 50,000
on it, mostly city miles. We pull a
Coleman popup trailer with it when we
go camping which doesn't seem to
strain the engine at all, even
climbing. Overall, we like the
vehicle, however, we have experience
our share of the quality problems
mentioned by the other reviewers. The
transmission went out at just over
42,000, the alternator went out, and
the things seems to go through
batteries every few years and the
brakes are terrible. My transmission
guy said that it should have lasted
longer than it did, however, after
reading the other reviews, I see I am
not alone.

Best Features

Interior space. We have 6 in our family plus a dog when we go camping and everyone has plenty of space.

Worst Features

GM, build a quality product if you expect repeat business. I know I probably will not buy another GM.
