    Default I walked away from the Suburban

    I was supposed to go see it tomorrow. Its about an 80 mile drive one way to go see it.. It seemed like each time the guy and I talked there was just one more thing wrong with it, then another, then another. I was thinking about it earlier, and just decided to pass on it. I am a little bummed, but something just doesnt feel right about it anymore. There is the perfect older burban out there waiting for me... *sigh lol

    Sorry to here that. Sure there is some out there. I saw a 2wd for $1800 that was in decent shape but I wanted 4wd. It is alittle far for you to drive to the east to get a vehicle. I haven't got mine yet but can't wait, one more week. all I have is pictures and drove it once.

    89... Little things here and there, I knew that before going to see it. Today when I called to confirm for tomorrow, he said I couldnt drive it home. The U joint(s) were going out, and there was a large crack in the back door glass. It was just too much for me. For 5 hundred more, I could find one a few years newer, or atleast with less problems. Ive got nothing but time. They are going cheap now, and will probably be even cheaper as time goes..

    Well, sounds like you've got the right attitude - there's always another one! Good luck on the future purchase and I hope this doesn't cause you to not visit us here!

    I miss having a Burban! With the kids and all the stuff we haul around, we REALLY need the room. Maybe I'll start thinking about a 4wd Suburban project...

    Good luck with your search, with gas prices down they're selling again and the prices have gone back up.

    The same thing happened to m ewith a 99 burb that was about 6 hrs. away. The more I talked to the guy the longer the story got...had a bad feeling and being a PI, its usually right.

    So we walked away from the $5500 '99 and then found the '90 4x4 for $2000 and couldnt be more happy.

    BTW, when I was searching for ours, I saw a lot of that year model over your way in Cali and Arizona...

    Good luck

    Probably the right decision, I would stay with the 89-91s though, I wish I could have found a good one up here in MN when i bought my 99, they are so easy to lift, and while I do like the leather and heated seats it would be nice to have something I dont have to worry about my two dogs destroying.
