1996 Chevrolet Suburban LS 5.7L Vortec V8 from North America
It's unbreakable, SERIOUSLY!!
Transmission went out somewhere after 100,000 miles.
Fuel filters, belts, tires and just about everything else on this truck has held up well and has been maintained regularly.
Alternators have gone out at various mileages.
A/C lost the "HI" setting and can only go as far as the setting before "HI".
The CD player shorted out, but the radio itself still works.
It's been beat on more times than I can think of and it still works!
My family and I have had this thing since my dad custom ordered it straight from Chevrolet in 1996. With its white with navy blue underside paint choice, it's pretty recognizeable aside from its size.
Other than the stuff mentioned above, this American leviathan from Chevrolet has some of the best towing power you can ever find in a truck/ SUV. The 5.7L Vortec V8 (commonly known as the 350 Small Block) isn't the most fuel efficient piece of machinery out there, but it works and I still feel that this truck can go on for YEARS to come. The engine is seriously bullet proof and I'm not joking. Sometimes I throw absolutely anything at it and it still pulls through! Like I said, gas mileage is the only issue with me here in this type of economy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
