2001 Chevrolet Suburban SUV 1500 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased vehicle new for hauling the family and a utility trailer. After 217,000 miles of use that has expanded to include long road trips loaded to the max, towing an enclosed snowmobile trailer in Maine, many off road excursions in Maine and Colorado, and now towing a 23' travel trailer in the Rockies this truck has performed flawlessly. Besides general maintenance I have replaced a water pump, fuel pump, alternator, and rotors, once. The engine has never been opened except to replace an intake gasket. It is just now starting to burn some oil when pressed hard. Every single function on this vehicle still works. The transmission and brake issues have been resolved. This vehicle is awesome


Best Features

Size, capabilities, strength, looks, and quality. I don't even mind the MPG. Rotate tires often.


Worst Features

Possibly a diesel offering.

2001 Chevrolet Suburban SUV 2500 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I absolutely love my Suburban. it is very roomy and comfortable. The only complaint is the MPG. We get 10- 14 mpg. The cost of gas ends up being so much a month it is almost like having a %500 monthly car bill. I will probably sell it and find a different vehicle just due to MPG.


Best Features

Comfort and room.


Worst Features

MPG. If they could somehow make a suburban style vehicle with about 18 MPG I would be one very satisfied customer.

Review

Bought our Suburban new summer of 01. Overall, it has been a average vehicle. Its power and handling are subpar by todays standards but are certainly adequate. Braking is not very secure feeling. The controls are laid out well and are easy to use. However, the design doesn't look all that great, kind of cheap. The front seats are extremely comfortable. 2nd &3rd row seats complete opposite. Quality has been bad but not terrible. Lots of problems and has caused some real headaches. Luckily, all of the tons of problems it has had have been relatively inexpensive to resolve. However,my friend got a lemon with his 02 tahoe. Nothing but problems,thousands spent on repairs,left them stranded often


Best Features

comfortable front seats. service at dealer is very good (which is nice since we are there so often for repair). Very large trunk is nice when family is packing for a trip.


Worst Features

Stop using low quality plastic. Pieces of the interior are always falling off, cracking, etc.

Review

Purchased as a towable behind the RV with 60,000 miles on the clock. Now I have 129,000 and use it as a daily driver. Cant beat the ride, utility, reliability and safety. Have two kids at home and it stores everything.Got rid of my daily driver (Had $30K invested ad didn't need the truck anymoe) and love that I don't have a truck payment. Everyone says it will go 25o,000 miles, other than routine maintenance...I think they are right. Mileage is fine, if you are not abusive with the gas pedal, it get's 12 to 15 MPG, with no monthly payment, it's ok. Go for one, any year because they keep getting better. MB


Best Features

Space and safety


Worst Features

Some plastic trim has fallen of in the interior.
