Great vehicle, comfortable and reliable

by from Marble Falls, Texas on September 12, 2017

The Suburban is a wonderful family auto, can be used for material transport or family with children; safe and plenty of space and legroom

Best SUV ever!

by on September 3, 2017

This has been the best SUV I've owned! It's very reliable, comfy, and fun to drive. I currently have 297,312 miles on it and it's still running strong!

Have driven a 1999 Suburban over 183,000 miles since 1999 and it still has all the original systems. Only replaced normal wear items like belts, hoses and break pads. Have never had front end alignment since purchased. Just recently replace the first burnt out headlight bulb. Would buy a new one tomorrow if they made the exact same model. Most versatile vehicle I have ever owned.

Best Truck

Bought it brand new in 2000, so far it has been the best truck I have ever had. The best about this truck is parallel parking; I live downtown; therefore, parking space is premium and small; however, with the wide steering radius, I certainly have impressed so many spectators on the streets. This truck is so well built, I have not seen any rust on the body yet and after 200K, the engine still smooth like silk. I was going to trade it in for a 2015 Suburban, but the new truck did not feel as good. I think I will drive this baby for another 100K.

I bought my 99 Chevrolet Suburban in October of 2000. I am now at 258,000 miles on the same engine. This Baby purrs like a kitten. Even my mechanic is surprise of how well she still works. I replaced the transmission after 13 years, but the engine is so quiet. I am never getting rid of her. I get quotes and notes everyday left on my door of people asking "Do you want to sell"? The answer is no. I just drove 8 hours to Kentucky and 8 hours back, greatest ride ever, because there is so much room. The trunk held luggage for 7 people and the kids still had room to lay out and sleep. Of course Big Green is always dressed and has a remote starter. I don't know who is more spoiled me or her.

the truck is absolutely incredible. big on the inside and on the outside. big engine and LOTS of power. every year my family take trips from central florida to tennessee with 4,000 lbs of pop-up camping trailer and gear on the back. we broke 200,000 miles on its first engine which the mechanics said was never supposed to happen. regretably we had to replace the engine at 250,000 miles due to a busted radiator the made the engine block go boom. still it is running as strong as it ever was. i love this truck and one day i hope to buy it from my father and turn it into an off road beauty with the same engine it has used. i love this truck and hope to have it for years to come.

We bought our 99 Suburban used after our 88 was totaled. Both have been awesome. We replaced the trans 2 yrs ago it now has 224K miles and is beginning burden my wallet. Looking to replace it, problem is, no one has as big a truck, new suburbans don't have the 4x8 bed, 99 was the last year for that. Chevy runs strong.

I recently bought a 1999 used suburban from a dealer in Costa Mesa CA. After riding it for a day, my service engine light came on. After showing it to a repair person, I was told that the catalytic converter needs to be replaced. It will cost approx. $1200 to repair. I have a feeling the dealer knew about this. In addition, I mentioned during the test drive that the AC was not working properly, which they told me that a compressor will only cost $200 to replace, estimate I got was $800. Make sure when you buy a vehicle to spend extra on Carfax (dealer showed a different report that did not have repair record). I got the vehicle at a good price (2000) less than market value, but it ended up the same due to repairs. Recommend doing your homework prior to going to the dealer who will say anything to sell you the vehicle. Suburban runs good, but I have a ill feeling about the used car dealer...I guess trust is not one of the values of used car dealers, especially the one I went to.
