BIG disappointment
By theboys'mom on


1998 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD


I've been a fan of CHEVY since my
first car (68 Chevelle). But this
Suburban has shaken my faith in the
most reliable engine, the 350, ever
built. First problem with the
transmission at 10k miles, gear
replacement. Then 4-wheel drive
issues, when in 4-wheel HIGH or LOW
the car feels like it is braking when
turning the steering wheel; the
dealership can't find the problem &
said do not use the 4-wheel drive
feature (makes sense?). More problems
w/ trans. @ 45k miles - lost REVERSE.
Since then - an exhaust manifold leak
& a head gasket replaced (this SUV
only has 53k miles on it). Now A/C
problems. AGAIN I say - BIG

Best Features

comfortable drive

Worst Features

Chevy needs to decide if they are going to sacrifice their repeat business with previously happy GM owners for was has become an inferior product. Long term profit margins won't be pretty for this model if manufacturing & engineering doesn't improve.
