Great family vehicle. Bought used with less than 100,000 miles when the kids were home, kids are all grown and the odometer is at 290,000.
Have hauled children and their gear all over, survived County Fairs and innumerable 4-H animal projects. Pulled the Horse trailer up to the State Fair
through City traffic, loaded with camping gear for the week, she made it just fine. A car ran into her side, spun her around, totaled the car, bent the Suburban's rear-axel, passengers shook-up but a-OK, she drove home & got repaired. Three deer have bounced off the grill guard in the front and the only damage is a dent in the corner of the hood. She has driven me back and forth through roads and weather that has been just plain nasty, definitely dependable and reliable. Chevy dealer in town is fantastic about keeping her serviced and running. Well worth the money.
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.
COLD AIR COND. WITH OUTSIDE COLOR IN
BLACK. VISIBLIITY AROUND VEHICLE IS
EXCELLENT.HEATING IN WINTER IS
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!
