2002 Chevrolet Suburban SUV 1500 LS 2WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I love my Suburban. With 80,000 miles on it, it has cost me less in maintenance than my Honda scooter with 4k. Be prepared for the gas bill, but be pleasantly surprised by the lack of maintenance cost. I do regular oil changes, have changed tires twice, and just got my first brake job. I love my 'burban. It's about to haul me, my wife and our two dogs on a three week camping trip across the country, and I have no worries about it's performance. Buy American! You wont be disappointed!!!


Best Features

Tight turning, exceptionally smooth ride, tons of space, safety, low maintenance cost.


Worst Features

Fuel economy and lower price point.

Review

This has been a great truck for us over the years, and I want to thank Chevy for building it. It has had a few mechanical issues, (replaced starter, air conditioning unit), but by and large we are still pleased after 7 years, 131,000miles. My wife drives it and loves it. She doesn't look forward to a new car, in fact, content to drive this one until it dies.


Best Features

Safety- my wife and kids are as safe in this vehicle as any I can put them in. Capacity- 3 rows plus cargo room. Reliability- my wife and kids have never been stuck on the road somewhere. Ride- This car rides like a Cadillac.


Worst Features

Wouldn't it be great if Chevy extended it's powertrain warranty a little longer?

This is a great vehicle we have traveled many places in this vehicle and have had only minor problems. We have replaced the fuel pump and u-joints. This is a great vehicle my husband has a 2001 he has 293453 miles and only replaced the alternator. This is our third Suburban and we will be buying another Suburban soon.


Best Features

Room, ride handling on the road in all weather conditions.

Improve gas mileage and equip with eye glass compartment like the 1997's were.

Review

We bought this vehicle with the birth of our first child (three children later) and it has been all we have needed as a family vehicle. I refuse to do the mini-van even though gas mileage would be better but, I wouldn't change our decision for a second. 80k miles later and it still starts and runs like the first day we bought it. Just keep up with regular maintance and I plan to drive it till it dies.


Best Features

Spacious room, good handling for a big vehicle (good turning radius), reliability, and easy to drive.


Worst Features

I don't think they offered it when I bought it but, steering wheel controls (ie; for the radio) would have made it perfect.
