Purchased three years ago at 70,000 from individual with all receipts, maintained exclusively by Chevy dealer. ALL scheduled maintenance is faithfully done, and we keep it looking clean & new. BUT, since reaching 90,000 miles, something breaks about every week. In last two years, we have replaced the transmission, all 8 fuel injectors, head gasket, radiator, water pump, alternator, fuel pump, and A/C compressor. Pass-side rear window doesn't work. Power locks quit working last week. A truly sad example of poor quality & reliability throughout. It's comfortable & great for interior capacity & towing, but we've bought the car twice due to the repair expense. Definitely don't recommend

Our suburban had numerous quality
problems. We paid 38K for it and the
left door (back seat) squeaked for the
entire time we owned the vehicle. The
dealer couldnt fix it. The power
window on the drivers side went out.
An incredibly overrated poor quality

VERY COMFORTABLE ON LONG TRIPS WITH
LARGE LOAD CAPACITIES. ROAD MILAGE IS
MUCH BETTER THAN THE EVERYDAY AROUND
TOWN MILAGE. DRIVABILITY IS EXCELLENT.
HANDLING IS EXCELLENT. POWER IS
EXCELLENT. WORRY ABOUT THE TRANS.
,DUE TO MY SON HAS AREADY HAD TO
REPLACE HIS 98' TAHOE TRANS. AT 50K
MILES.ONLY USE MOBILE ONE OIL WITH NO
LEAKS AND PRESENTLY HAVE 80K MILES ON
MY SUBURBAN SINCE PURCHASED. DRIVES
DOOR RATTLES GOING OVER BUMPS AT ANY
SPEED, SUSPECT LOOSE AUTO WINDOW MECH.

On the positive side this SUV has good
power and tows fairly well but upkeep
is getting expensive. At 60k miles
replaced rearend (started out as a roar
from a wheel bearing), 75K miles
Transmission rebuilt (broken planetary
gears and bad bearings). While in the
shop for the trans. Intake starts
leaking coolant. These repairs along
with three altenators before 76K miles
makes me believe that Chevy has a
problem. I will not buy another one,
might lease one and turn it in before
things go bad!

Vehicle quality leaves much to be
desired... so much so that I would
caution any potential Chevy/GM/Suburban
buyers against purchasing. Vehicle has
only 50K miles and already has left my
wife stranded on 3 separate occasions
(we're on 3rd alternator and have had
to replace various electronic
components (all at considerable cost).
Bottom line, Chevy advertises it's
trucks as built like a rock... well, if
they were building rocks they'd be
O.K... unfortunately, automobiles are
complicated machines that should be
provided a higher level of engineering
and quality that Chevy has provided to
