2001 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 2WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I have one major complaint with this
vehicle. Wind noise around the front
passenger door and the windshield. I
have had it into 2 different dealers 3
different times. Some adjustments have
been made but the problem persists. I
had been told that the problem was
anything from the bug deflector to the
antenna to this is "normal wind
noise". If it is 'normal' then why
when I drove a GMC pickup as a loaner
for one of my service visits the pickup
was noticably quiter? After all, it
has the same hood, fenders, doors, etc.
as the Suburban. If the wind noise
problem could be fixed I would be
fairly happy with the vehicle.
Very comfortable on road trips. Did all
the driving from Dallas to Colorado
Springs in one day and wasnt wasted
when I got there. Seems to be well
thought out as far as conveniences and
features are concerned.
Improve the gas mileage. I had a '93
Suburban prior to this one. It got 15
mpg city/ 17-18 mpg hiway. The '01
gets the same mileage. With advances
in engine technology and the vehicles
being loaded more plastic and other
weight reducing measures why cant the
mileage be improved?
