Ialso have a 1990 chevy suburban 4x4 an its nothing but the truth. I ve had it sence 2001 and it had 208,000 we drove it to south carolina twice, mich,ohio and ocean city and shes still kicking only replaced starter and tires so far Thank God. that should speak for itself. now in process of painting and restoring and just driving it on weekends

Probably one of the best vehicles still on the road.....that speaks for itself. How many of these newer SUVs will make it to the twenty year old status and still going strong. Although i rebuilt my motor and transmission at 150k, i used this "burb" for pulling my trailer and work related hauling. It is definitely a workhorse and well worth the money invested. Currently at 288k miles and still more powerful than any Ford that i have owned. LOL

I Have A 90 Chev Suburban And That Damn Thing Is An Iron Horse!! I Love My Suburban And Will Always Buy American. She Is 20 Years Young With A Rebuilt 350 And Trans, Body Has 185k On It But Looks Like It Was Built Yesterday. Like A ROCK Baby!!!!
