We traded a 1999 Suburban for a 2000
Suburban because we had had problems
with the older one. After owning the
second for a little over a year, the
fuel pump went out. Over the past 6
months, we have had 5 fuel pumps, the
latest stranding us 120 miles from home
on Christmas day. The dealer cannot
find out why, but says he had a Yukon
that did the same. He told us he
would "get rid of it" if he were us and
it went out again.
I bought the Suburban because we have 4
kids and a large dog. The roominess is
This is one tough truk! It hauls, it
tows, it hunts! The 6.0 Motor gets
10MPG with all nine seats full &
pulling a 3500lb pop-up over Monarch
Pass, CO (~11,500 feet) at 55 mph!
Breaks are great for a truck this size
This Suburban has been flawless. With
41k miles, it has only been in the shop
twice, and both for minor things.
The 6.0 engine will pull your house
right off the lot. A/C is great, and
acceleration is awsome. Gas mileage is
so so, but for something this big, and
this fast, mileage is better than
expected. This Suburban has no rattles,
no wind noise. Best one we have had
yet. We recently bought a luxury
Japanese car and in 8 months, it has
been in the shop 5 times, and needs to
go back again. From this point forward
my next car will be a Suburban/Tahoe.
Ice cold A/C, strong engine, huge
Little bit better gas mileage. Make
HID headlights available. We installed
a set of Sylvania High Intensity
Discharge headlights on it, and they do
a great job of lighting the road.
3rd Suburban for a traveling salesman
and this one is the best to date.
125k and no major problems to date.
Towing 9000# with very little effort.
Problems with the previous Suburbans
have been addressed. Excellent ride
with handling to match.
Power, breaking, storage space, and
ability to COMFORTABLY have 8 people
in the vehicle.
