  • Another Suburban and another disappointment,,,,,,,,,,

    I posted the green Suburban last month and now I'll show the orange truck. Not AW's best. I don't mine the pillar in the back but the ill-fitting hood and the lumps under the paint on the side of the hood are not cool.

    Dick, I hate hearing this kind of feedback. It appears Auto World is a hit-and-miss diecast of late.
    Due to the recent budget cuts,
    the rising cost of electricity, gas, and oil, plus the
    current state of the economy, the light at the end
    of the tunnel has been turned off.

      The colors look awesome, it's too bad the quality isn't good

        All the bad feedback of late looks like I will be looking for the nova 2 station wagons when they make the shelves.

          Dan, I bought another AW square body with this and it has no issues. Most AWs are great but all these Suburbans have the bad hood fit and funny low rider stance. I'll take a chance on the Nova wagons; should be out May 10.

            I'm staying away from them. The only thing that really interests me now is the nova 2 and the Challengers. I don't want a Camaro, Corvette, though I am proud to announce that I now own my late mothers' Caddilac Suv. Auto World hasn't done anything that really is grabbing me now.

              I guess we should consider ourselves lucky they don't charge more for the "CUSTOM" work. Sorry about your disappointment Leroy. That does suck and I have had a few myself...

                The stance is fairly accurate to the real vehicle. most people are used to them either being slammed or lifted. I can live with minor paint issues but the thing with the hood does knock it down a few pegs, Maybe they should have gone with an opening tailgate or no opening parts at all, like most manufactures they put out some hits but sometimes they miss. if you are expecting amazing quality maybe you should move towards 1:43.


                Here's a review on the Revell model kit and it has a similar stance to the Auto World. https://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/1966-chevy-suburban

                  The opening hoods need to go, I put back a Toyota Supra I was checking out Walmart because the back edge is rounded and is a real eye sore.

                    I am really sorry to hear that. I know that disappointment well from the last few I have purchased. If I am lucky enough to find them in the stores, I open them and inspect them before I buy them. If they are goofed up I will give them to a store assistant if I can find one, on toss it back on the shelf. It's a luck of the draw if you buy them online. You have to take what you get and can't blame the seller either. I have become very, very picky in my buying lately and at 7, 8, and 9 bucks each, I think we all have a right to be picky about the quality.
                    Really sorry to hear this buddy!!!

                      Got four new Challengers and Demons in the mail and they refuse to open. Has anyone ever gotten them to open? At least they are shut though. Johnny Lighting made at least a million in the 64 forever series that wouldn't close or shut.
