1997 Chevrolet Suburban lt 350 from North America
So far it sounds like all the suburbans are pretty much the same. The first thing to go was the air conditioning, then the transmission. Then the interior lights started coming on while sitting in the driveway, going down the road; almost like it was possessed. Then the starter (3 times), some of the dash lights, the steering box, front end alignment won't hold, exhaust pipes rattle like a 1950's farm truck; the intake manifold leaked, and various other annoying things have gone wrong. Too bad Chevrolet can't figure our these things... they certainly charge like they have! For a vehicle of this caliber, I have to admit I'm disappointed. I can't afford to sell at this stage of the game... everyone now knows the things that go wrong and not willing to trade. Good on slick roads!
As far as travel in this vehicle, you couldn't ask for a better ride. It's roomy, and the ride is great. The ABS works better on my 1997 than on my former 1993 suburban. I would buy again if I thought Chevy had fixed all the problems I've had on this one. Of course, the only thing covered by Chevy on my 1997 was the air-conditioning; everything else has come out of my pocket!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
