Review

Purchased used with 53000 miles. My
neighbor is a GM mechanic and told me
I'd be putting a water pump on it soon.
At 63,000 sure enough, it needed a
water pump. Within months started
seeing coolant leak again. This time
intake manifold gaskets. Researched the
internet, seems this is a problem with
5.7 engines. GM's solution...redesign
the motor. No service bulletin, no
corporate support, fix it yourself.
It's unfortunate GM refuses to be
honorable and stand behind what is
obviously a defect, not normal wear and
tear. It ran better after new gaskets
but wallet $600 lighter. All in all my
family loves it but my instincts tell
me to get rid of it soon.


Best Features

Room, comfort, safety. Its a tank and we feel safe driving it.


Worst Features

Improve quality.

Review

Pulls a 7000 pound trailer great, very
versatile as it carries 4X8 sheets of
material. Burns not a drop of oil at
107000 miles. Every feature still
works good.


Best Features

Towing ability and seating/hauling capacity.


Worst Features

Driver's window bottom metal attachment rusted out. Use better plating.

Good solid vehicle, lots of room. No

mpg. Nice ride. Coul come with larger
diameter wheels.

Review

This is the ultimate family transport
vehicle that is not shy about pulling
a boat, trailer or even stumps! The
highway ride is terrific and with the
4-wheel drive, it's virtually
unstoppable in the snow! We've got 4
kids and they appreciate having their
own space--let alone the golden
retriever who has the back all to
herself. Plenty of power, comfort, and
heft helps maintain the heritage of
the suburban!


Best Features

Front/rear A/C, towing package, 4- wheel drive with ABS, autotrac transfer case.


Worst Features

Gas mileage could be better!
