Review

We purchase our Z71 Suburban used from the original owner with 125k miles. 3 weeks after purchase we started having major problems. Its now been 1.5 years and I'm into it over $3k out of pocket in repairs alone! The 4wd and complete A/C system went out and cost a fortune to repair, It eats brakes, replaced the battery twice, exhaust leak that kills the power, the list goes on and on.The front speakers for the stereo only work, the interior is cheap plastic that rattles like crazy. GM build quality in these is non-existent. If I can help anyone in their pursuit for a full size family SUV, please please please run away from the 2001-2006 Chevy/GM Suv's! Their all garbage from the get go!


Best Features

Review

My wife and I bought our '04 suburban with the Z71 package. at first we loved this vehicle (and still really like it). but we feel the fuel mileage is horrible! It left us stranded 30 miles in the wilderness after a camping trip with no phone services when the ground wire to the ECM (computer) broke. It cost us $400 at a dealer to fix a wire and re-flash the computer. the battery and alternator also needed replaced but I was OK with that considering its age and mileage. just figured it was normal maintenance. the brakes have always felt week even after replacing them and flushing the old fluid out. the power of the 5.3L I feel is undersized for this size of vehicle.


Best Features

Love being able to take the whole family on towing trips in comfort. has enough room to fit our large family and still fit plenty of cargo. The Z71 package is nice with great sound, and DVD system for the kids.


Worst Features

increase fuel mileage. improve handling in corners. needs more power. Third seat is way to heavy, improve the third seat stow-away design. Either a fold into the floor setup or decrease its weight.

Review

This has just been one of the best vehicles I have ever owned! Super reliable, still looks good, never a problem. It drives great, almost like a car and yet it can haul big trailers with horses in it. Just a great, great truck. I LOVE our Suburban. We're buying a new one now and will miss it.


Best Features

Reliable and safe. Never have to worry about bad weather


Worst Features

Radio knobs always seemed to have the finish chip off and the CD player broke
