I purchased my 1995 GMC Suburban SLE in 2011 with 50K on it. It was a Fire Chiefs vehicle in a local township. Exterior and interior were in excellent condition. I wanted a vehicle of this type for my hobbies and was looking to spend around $12,000. I was able to purchase the Suburban for $3,000. Beatufull Truck but came with some issues. I had to get one of the rear side windows resealed to stop water leak, also the tailgate window seal had to be modified to stop another leak. The AC was repaired for a leak. Turned out it had a bad head gasket. So I spent just a little more and got a brand new GM factory crate motor to replace it. I also got headers, High flo cat and muffler, Edlebrook intake and high flo water pump, K&N air filter, New brakes rotors and drums, Billstein Shocks, New tires and upraded Stock Chrome wheels. Installed Alarm/remote start. Also Replaced the Hood with a cowl induction style hood, added a rear spoiler. All new headlights. Installed new radio that accepts IPod and Sirius. Now I have aroud $10,000 into it and love it.
Bought my 95 suburban with 146k miles and did not have one problem until it hit 151k miles. Now everything seems to be going wrong. Transmission went out, altinator almost blew up my battery so I had to also buy a new battery, and now I am having a stalling issue that is starting to cost a lot on repairs since there is no code reader for this year of vehicle all we can do is replace parts til it fixes the problem.
Reliable, easy (and relatively inexpensive) to maintain.
