1997 GMC Suburban C1500 4dr SUV


My 97 Burb was without a doubt, the most reliable vehicle that I have ever owend. It is currently at 391,500 kms (Yes you read it correctly) and going strong.I live in Canada and use it for hunting, fishing, and in -35 degree celcius weather. I have no worries about turning the key and making another 1500 km trip without notice or time to prep. Aside from changing the Fuel Pump once (common problem), I have not had any major issues with her. There is no rust on it and the interior is still in great shape without cracks in the dash or holes in the seats. Aside from regular maintenace and fluid changes, the only thing that I had to change was the air freshener. It never quits!

Best Features

Love the space, dash layout and reliabilty. The 5.7 Vortec is incredible!

Worst Features

Mileage isn't the greatest but if you're buying a Suburban you already know this. If you want economy, buy a tin can import. If you want quality and reliability buy a Sub.
