Great Truck for the price by An MSN Autos Consumer on 02/15/2011. Trim: 1988 Chevrolet Suburban R10 2WD, Owned more than 10 years.
Pros: easy to get parts, lots of space, great for moving stuffs. low cost of ownership
Cons: poor braking, handling on snow/ice. noise doors when close.
Overall review: Do remember this is an 20+ year old "SUV". Got it from my in law who owned it for near 10 year but only put 8K miles. I got it a few months ago with 160K miles. MPG is around 13-16 which is not bad at all. Replaced battery, alternator and startup STRONG every time even in the winter. Also replaced pitman arm, idel control arm on the front. Don't count on ride quality and handling on this BIG SUV. It float around corner and beware when driving on rain and snow. The engine is strong, very basics and easy to get parts. Some of the work can be DIY. The inside of the car is big. My kids love it even though it is an old car. Couple things: when closing the door, it is noise becuase of the metal sound, the inside look dated and not too much of features compares to newer car. It is hard to repalce the radio (very old style and I gave up ) If you can get one cheap, I would say go for it and keep up with service, it should last long :)
