Reliability on Suburban LTZ
By Prof Slim on
Vehicle2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewNice 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.
Best FeaturesLooks. Cargo space. MPG is pretty good (19+ highway)
Worst FeaturesGet 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.
