1994 Chevrolet Suburban SLE 5.7 V8
It really hauls!
The alternator went dead, when I was towing a Camarzo Z28 o the drag strip! Kinda funny to have that problem in that specific time.
Other than that, just the usual maintenance.
It handles really good, but the thing eats gasoline like you would not believe. It just makes about 18 kilometers per gallon.
Added some "performance" parts trying to get a better fuel mileage. I installed headers, a TBI spacer and a "cyclone fuel saver". Even though the gas mileage was improved somewhat, the performance is awesome.
I got the C2500 built in Mexico. Since it came from Mexico, I tought that I was going to have plenty of problems with it, but so far, it has impressed me with the reliability. The interior noise was a bit high, due to loose interior panels, but after securing them in place, the ride is much more civilized.
However, what really amazes me is that this thing really hauls! I mean, I knew that the suburbans with that HUGE 350 engine were capable of towing and all, but after hauling a Z28 in a trailer, and having 8 passengers (plus me) on it, and being able to drive it like if I was alone, man, I am telling you, I was shocked. There and then I decided to overlook the gas mileage. I am converted!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
