Chevrolet Suburban 2004 - Time to change to a newer one
I have a 2004 Suburban Z71 with 53,000 Miles. The car is in great shape and I love it. The only problem that the car had was the bearings, this happened close to 40,000 miles (out of waranty). The GM changed the bearings and I asked them to pay part of it as this problem should not happen so soon. GM paid for the labor and I did pay the parts (that was expensive too).
Now the car have now 5 years and 53000 miles. I would like to get some feedback if I should change to a newer car or keep this car.
I worry about the maintenance cost that can start to happen.
I was looking at the Crevrolet Traverse LTZ 2009. This is the only car that can fit 7 confortably that is not a minivan or a big SUV (tahoe, suburban, etc).
The Suburban is out of question because of the price, to high for me at this moment.
I will be paying 29,000 for this Traverse (after tax, etc) giving my car as downpayment. Is this a good deal. The price tag of this Traverse was 41,000 (after cashback and rebates).
Any feedback about the Suburban maintenace after 5 years will be great. I don't know about the issues that can happen with this car and the costs associated with them.
