1996 Chevrolet Suburban LT 5.7 gas from North America
Basic repairs and maintenance, plus a rear end that took out the transmission.
Great vehicle! I am looking for another one and I will give mine to my son.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wonderful to hear you made that Suburban endure the ages. 393,000 miles is pretty eye opening. If you ever get it to an even 400k, I'm sure you'll get just as many eyeballs on it if you record the event on Youtube.
Congrats on the achievement!

There's the difference. You realize that as the miles pile up, parts are going to wear out and require replacement. That doesn't make it a bad vehicle or one not worth buying.
Then there's the dupe that buys a 2005 Silverado that already has 150K miles on it, and gets upset because it needs a water pump and other repairs, so claims it's no good. Apparently never thought about why used vehicles, especially ones with high mileage, are so much cheaper than new ones?

How did the rear end take out the transmission?
