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


Review

It's been great with the exception of having to replace the catalytic converter which cost a few bucks! Sufficient power, drives smaller than it is, very quiet.


Favorite Features

Size, comfort


Suggested Improvements

One touch closing moonroof, better interior materials for a 40K vehicle.

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


Review

We upgrade to the Suburban from a Dodge Ram due to our expanding family. We first test drove the Tahoe and then the Suburban. The Tahoe felt like it had too much sway, the Suburban was more "with the road". We were also sold on the massive amount of room behind the 3rd seat. After the warranty expired we discovered that the intermitent wipers were not working correctly and the intermediate steering arm needs to be replaced. The steering arm was said to be a common problem by our dealership, but one we would have to pay for. Same with the wipers. The only other concern I have is the side of the driver's seat is starting to tear.


Favorite Features

Cavernous room. Comfortable, programable, and heated seats. Sound system rocks. Good fuel mileage for its size. Interior layout and exterior styling. Plenty of compartments and decent cup holders.


Suggested Improvements

Offer factory recalls for my problems. Better seat construction for durability. Rear wiper needs to wipe more of the rear window. One of the grease fittings is a pain to get at - must turn the steering wheel which is a pain when its up on ramps.

Better leather quality.

Review

I have owned many General Motors vehicles in the past and have had better than average results. I purchased the Suburban for the seating capacity and the towing capability. It is a very comfortable vehicle and pulls very well. That's the good part. To make a long story short, this truck has been in the shop 12 times in less than 2 years for various items. Some examples are 3x for replacment of steering linkage, 4x for air conditioner repair, and the latest (for which GM will lose my lifetime business) the rearend differential went out. For those not familiar with trucks, this is a part that just doesnt break. (The dealer even said so) Still GM refused to fix. Im now looking at Nissan.


Suggested Improvements

Build quality autos to keep customers. When occasionally a less than acceptable vehicle rolls off your line, admit it, then fix it, then apologize for the hassle.

Review

I needed a large vehicle that had space to carry a large load and could pull a trailer. The Suburban worked out just fine - no problems, strong motor, very reliable, decent ride for a large SUV and pretty good handling.


Suggested Improvements

Make it easier to install / remove rear seat, possible by dividing it in half.
