2002 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 2WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
The Suburban pulls my 4500lb boat
effortlessly. I was very impressed
with the stability and performance
under heavy load. The drive train is
very well matched to this size
vehicle. I have only had minor
problems all of which were addressed by
the Chevrolet dealership. They
included a freon leak in the a/c
system, a rattle in the steering
linkage, and a malfunctioing seatbelt.
I like the towing ability. Better than
average fuel economy for this size
vehicle. Very comfortable for 7 people
(mine has the captain chairs).
Very poor tires from the factory. I
replaced them with Michelin LTX and am
very pleased. I have had the
windshield replaced twice now.
Chevrolet might consider a design
change to prevent rock chips.
