Suburban End Of The Road??
No way. My '97 (1500LT-special ordered new) with 88,000 miles is a keeper. Have not yet found a task it cannot handle. The newer ones look beefier, but apparently are not as flexible as my series. Mine new was 30K+. Making luxury vehicles out of Suburbans defeats their purpose.
Suburbans are like an old pair of Red Wing Boots !!
My first suburban was a 1999, after many Blazers in my 67 years, I got the fever ! I now have a 2005 Z71 with all options, at 77000 miles the transmission failed, but GM did foot half the bill to repair. Being retired my wife and I will continue to drive the most comfortable vehicle on the road. Easy to get in and out of, haul anything I like without knocking off the DVD player, I guess it works , who cares !! I tow with it when necessary, and am always elected to haul friends to the event where their " little SUV's" can't make the cut. 16-19 mile @ gallon with all synthetic fluids and K&N air filter. We have not much control over the minds of GM engineers as they struggle to meet their quota---but then again I can repair mine for a lot less than the 60 grand for a new one !! Keep driving your 'Burb !!!!! After all you wouldn't throw away that ol' pair of RED WING BOOTS !!
