Life of a 2007 5.3L in a Suburban? Please help.
I'm looking at 2007 1500 Suburban 4x4 with 125,000 miles on it. What is the life span of the GM 5.3 these days? Please help. Thanks in advance.
If maintained properly you can get 300,000 miles easy
As Tuff said, maintenance is the key to longevity in any vehicle. Run a carfax or other vehicle history report. Many service facilities now report to carfax when a vehicle has maintenance or repairs done. This will be a good indicator of how well the vehicle has been taken care of. HTH. - Jim
You have to be careful with those engines, if the rings get plugged its 5,000 for a new motor!
Thank you for the information, 300,00 is a long time. I come from the old days of a SBC going 100,00 and out. I am looking for a family & car hauler :-)
Vehicles have come a long way since the 80's. Made to last longer. There is a guy who has one here and the truck is beat to pieces. 450,000 miles original engine and no tear downs to repair it.
