Owned for 7 years - hardly any problems except one bad alternator. Excellent value, huge capacity, dependable performance. One of the better cars I have owned.

Where to start? Bought new off of lot. Rear axle seals leaked within 90 days, coated brakes with axle oil and reduced braking, dealership would not cover cost. Coolant problems (ate gaskets). Front brakes replaced frequently. Speed sensitive steering would freak out and send you across lanes of traffic. Wipers prone to going out (poor design, fixed with silicon). Master booster leaked. Plastic distributor. ac units and fan blowers went out several times. Drank oil between changes, even from day 1 - Chevy told me that's normal (yet another lie). Leather seats cracked within weeks. Fuel pump failed several times, till I added thicker wire. Dual positive terminals on battery, poor design I had to fix it. Positives - nice smooth ride for long trips. Sold truck to some guy who offered cash, truck is in Mexico.

Our '97 Suburban has 86,000 miles on it and the only repairs which I have had to make on it was front brakes, battery and idler arm. I guess we were lucky after reading some of the other reviews. We have been very pleased with it overall.
