Good Vehicle

by from Ohio on August 13, 2017

Rare vehicle because most vehicles this year and size are trucks not suburbans. It also has low mileage for its age diesel motor sounds good & strong. no rips & tears in interior.

Ours is the big engine one. Seats eight with tons of space. It has all the options that were available. We sold the dvd player screen and one window doesnt work but it is safe as heck and super comfortable. Most suvs seem to have no trunk space but ours is like 4 feet. Ours has a tailgate and the hydraulic window has broken, spraying fluid everywhere. It is nearing 400k miles and the transmission needs work now. We are going to get it fixed bc the alternative is to sell the engine for 5k and buy something that is way less cool. It got us across the country twice.

I bought this in 2012 with only 98k on it. This Suburban absolutely performs stellar. I have two growing boys and we have plenty of room for them, friends and all their stuff. We put some BF Goodrich T/A KOs on it and now it is unstoppable in the snow! It is now my favorite ride except for the gas. We have a 42 gallon tank so at least I can forget about the pain for awhile in between fill ups. We replaced the alternator and had to get a new battery. I took a little bit for us to realize that in the 96 you can pull your key out of the ignition while all the way back in accessory position. In newer cars the ignition will not allow you to pull your key out so you avoid coming back to a drained battery. So be aware that the middle position on the ignition lets you leave the car with all accesories (radio, clock etc.) turned off and therefore not drawing batery while sitting for a few days. Highly recommended vehicle!!

Awesome truck, good four wheel drive, smoothe ride, gets on the freway quickly. Gets decent mileage on the road. averages about 19mpg with 7 people, food, and luggage for two weeks on board. tows pretty much anything I have ever hooked to it. Not good if you are looking for a tiny economy vehicle, but if you need a large truck; I am 6 foot 4 and the rest of my family is tall also, but a comfy ride and can stay at 75 mph all day with no strain.

This review is for the 1996 Surburban 2500 4WD. This car has been a rock of dependability for my family, taking us on safely on many road trips and reliably serving as a family car. The car seats 7 very comfortably (NO crowding at all), and can even squeeze in a 8th person in the 3rd seat if need be. In addition to interior comfort and roominess, it handles well and is probably one of the safest vehicles on the road. We have never had a major mechanical issue with the Suburban, and trust it to be dependable. I would buy again and recommend to others.
