1998 Chevrolet Suburban K1500 4dr SUV 4WD


I sold my previous Suburban (1994 and 300K miles) to purchase this one. It came with about 100K on it and was lacking in the routine maintenance department, after fixing and servicing the vehicle it has served us very well. Always starts even at -40 F, its easy to get in and out of (a must for my line of work). Pulls/hauls my 31' camper, the boat, or the car trailer with ease. I now have a little over 215K and still use it regularly with minimal maintenance issues. I would highly recommend this to others. As with any vehicle preventative maintenance and a competent mechanic can make all the difference. In my five years of ownership I have replaced 1 radiator, 2 door handles, and 1 brake line

Best Features

The visibility is great as is the interior space and towing capacity

Worst Features

I wish they still offered the diesel engine option. My parents had one back in the 80's and on family vacations we would see mileage in the high 20's. I don't know of any SUVs or crossovers that can do that let alone a suburban.
