We are now at 290,000 on Old Bessie and she is still going strong.
We change the oil every 4000 miles and it's still going strong.
The only repairs we have had are the power steering pump, the belt tensioner, and an intake plenum.
I think we may have put it one starter but I'm not sure.
Basically this car is start and drive.
It's old, it's dented and it leaks oil a bit (leaks, not burns) but I would still drive this thing through hell.
Awesome comfortable car.

We have used our Suburban for just about everything. We travel all over the city hauling the kids and their sports equipment every weekend and also use the vehicle to pull our seadoos. Have used the Suburban in the snow, sand, and mud with no problems driving the vehicle on/off road. Plenty of power for highway driving which is fun to drive!

I bought this vehicle new and it has been great. It has 85,000 miles and only major repair has been a leaking water pump. It is great for long trips with plenty of room for the family, baggage and equipment.
The self-proclaimed "king of the full-size sport-utility segment" was completely redesigned last year, yet 2001 still sees improvements to the powertrain. Chevy has upped the horsepower rating of the Vortec 6000 to 320, and 360 foot-pounds of torque is now made at 4,000 revs. A new 8.1-liter engine cranks out 340-horsepower at 4,200 rpm and 455 foot-pounds of torque at 3,200 rpm. You can maintain a relationship with your mechanic on a less intimate level, thanks to an increase in the recommended oil change interval from 7,500 miles to 10,000 miles.

I feel a vibration coming from my loaded 2001 CT Suburban's at 1000-1200 RPM, other RPM values are smooth. Talking with two other 2000+2001 Suburban owners, they also continue to feel this vibration/...
I have a 2001 Chevy Suburban K1500. The power steering pump went out and I decided to replace it. Problem is is that my pump has a temperature or other sensor on it and the replacement ones I've loo...
