1986 GMC SuburbanReview
Great Truck! — This is my second old suburban and I love them. I like large SUV's. I love the wide room and the comfortable ride. I'm not a large person by all means but I love having all the room I can get. I use it to haul scrap and signs and it does just about anything! I can haul 2000 lbs. of boxes inside. Gas isn't great but we all know that! Very nice car to take on a long trip because of all the room. I live in Texas and it takes a long time to get cooled down in the 100+ degree summer. For being 25 years old this trucks never misses a beat. Transmission was horrible, slamming into gear until a friend did "something" with a hose and fixed it. It's a very smooth ride and feels like you float on the road by being protected in a tank. My friends call it the "Land Barge"
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
Pros: Comfortable ride and roomy. Hauls everything
Cons: Hard to park and make tight turns. Takes long time to cool down in summer.
