Reliability on Suburban LTZ
By Prof Slim on
2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Nice looking truck but way too many serious issues in two years. SW issue that causes battery to drain, when the battery drains with this particular issue then call a flat-bed. Front right axle seal leak (can't be truly fixed as this is a design issue...just keep replacing the same gasket every time it starts leaking!) 4-wheel driver failure. Front transfer case bearing failure...special order for parts required. Rear plastic bumper loses 'shape' on the bottom within one year...looks very cheap. Very frustrating.
Looks. Cargo space. MPG is pretty good (19+ highway)
Get serious about engineering and testing for quality. If you want American vehicles to be taken serious again then take a lesson out of Harley Davidson's book on quality control and design excellence.
