Asked by Apr 21, 2014 at 01:42 AM about the 2000 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2000 Chevy Suburban just hit 170k. I love this thing to death and want it to last as long as possible. Transmission still good and engine still runs great. Just wondering if anyone has any tips about prolonging the life of my truck besides frequent oil changes, tune ups and general routine maintenance. Thanks
