I still love my suburban

This is my 3rd suburban. The 6 ltr engine is great. No problem hauling my 30' travel trailer. The styling is nice, although there is way too much plastic for a $40-50K vehicle. Several pieces have broken, while my '93 Suburban has yet to have any broken interior components. It is also interesting that I started to see rust spots on the finish after owning it only 6 months. Road noise is a little high, but this is a 3/4 ton truck. It has a tight turning radius, but hard to move if the wheels are cranked. The ride is decent. I still love suburbans, but hope GM will take another look at interior quality.

The top of the line LT model is a piece of junk. Within first year the AC fan motor broke, front seat rails were cracked,front shock absorber bad, driver heated seat doesn't heat, engine pings and knocks real bad even if using high test,other people have same problem, fuel gauge doesn't read correctly,electrical problem with clock/radio (a friend who also owns a 2001 LT has same problem) Chevy makes these trucks in Mexico.The quality just isn't there. Friend has had to replace electric window motor on the same door three times in the past 2 years with AC Delco Mexican parts; they repeatedly broke. Chevy/GM customer service is a joke.

First test drive my Wife did the driving and now I have a hard time getting her to be the passenger. Easy to drive. Took family on a 3600 mile trip five months after we bought the vechile with five children and we had room to spare.

There are draw backs to a truck this size. But none take away from the overall satisfaction of driving it. I wouldn't trade it for any vehicle in it's class.

2nd SubBurban

Review

Bought our 1st in Texas in 1992, put 168000 miles on it, shined it up and it looked new. Never occured to us to replace it with anything else. We no longer need to haul 12 girlscouts or 500 boxes of cookes ot a time, but my wife just loves her Surburban. Who cares if the mileage is less than 20MPG? Get rearended someday, get out and look at the poor guy that hit you and you will never drive a lesser car(truck)

I sold a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee to purchase a Suburban. Not only do I get better gas mileage than the Jeep (a complete surprise), I never ever have to worry about lack of space. I am amazed at how well this SUV handles. It rides as nice as any car I have owned.

Review

This is my second Suburban, which is a Z71. With 28,000 on this one we have experienced fewer problems then we did on our 1995 LT. Milage has improved but nothing like the others have reported. It is pretty much 15 city or highway - uphill or down. Problems to date have been with the front suspension that makes odd noises occasionally accompanied with excessive tire ware on the inside of the tires. The other minor issue has been with the rear AC control that now only works at one speed - high. Other then that, it is much more livable car to drive day to day then the previous generation, and at the price I got it at a much better value then most of the compitition.
