Owned this car for 13 years without issues

by from round rock, TX on September 18, 2017

This car has been reliable to me since we bought it. The engine still runs fantastic 13 years later, and we've only had to do light maintenance on the interior and exterior.

Bought my 2001 Suburban new. Has been a daily driver for me for 16 years. Now it has 350,000 miles and goes up daily. Great vehicle! I have kept all fluids changed properly and only major service has been a transmission rebuild. Plenty of luxurious room and comfortable. Loves to drink gas but its more about the smiles per gallon. I highly recommend Suburbans.

Best Chevy I have ever owned

by from Erie PA on April 22, 2017

I'm a Ford fan, but this Chevy was too good to pass up. It drives like it is on air, and is as comfortable as a private jet. My only complaint is it rides a bit low for offroading.

My wife and I bought an 01' (2500 model) used with about 23K on it back in 2005. After selling our home in FL we went on a 3 month cross-country trip including British Columbia, Yukon Territory, and Alaska. We put nearly 20,000 miles on during this period and ZERO problems. And up in the Yukon and Alaska we weren't babying it either...logging roads, crossing streams, mountains, you name it. I'd get another one in a heartbeat.

I bought this in April 2013 in Albuquerque NM. No rust. I have owned Fords, Dodge, Toyota and other makes. This is by far the best vehicle I ve ever owned. It has 130000 and it looks and runs like new. It has the 8.1 Vortex and it loves gas. Only complaint, but I have no problem. It has the tow pk. and can tow 10000 lbs. If you ever come across one the is in good shape buy it -you will love it. I only wish that I had bought one new. I have to say it again - best vehicle I ve ever owned. Ken

When I bought the suburban wow what a difference when you compare it to a car. I was amazed on how much it takes to fill but that's what I expected and its not bad on gas. When you fill it just don't let it get passed half tank and you won't fell the difference I don't its like I'm filling my Honda 55 dollars every two weeks. Overall I like it and can't complain.

We purchased our suburban 10 years ago with 100K miles on it. It was a super buy. It had been cared for well and we have had wonderful service. We don't put a lot of miles on our vehicles but we do use them hard in our repair business. I am sure we will purchase another one but I don't know when. It is a dual purpose vehicle for us -- business use and personal. We can get six adults and ski equipment in it for as 3-4 day ski vacation. It is very comfortable on long trips -- smooth ride and spacious. For business, it is very versatile.

I owned one for about 6 or 7 yrs, mainly for vacations, commuting kids, going too the lake. one of the best riding trucks i have ever had!! Never had second thoughts about filling it with gas and driving anywhere in the country. 2000 and 2001 best year model ive seen in a long time!! With regular maintanance never had a major malfunction. Kids grew up and it became more of a backup vehicle, so i sold it, I had every intention of getting 500,000 miles out of it before any engine or transmission issue. I bet its still on the road today. I remember one december getting snow and ice, streets were terrible but 4x4 got us everywhere we needed to go. The kids had a great time shopping and there we no lines at the checkout!!

WorstCarIHaveEverOwned-STAY AWAY piece of junk

My first and definitely last GM product. I normally own Toyota, Honda, and Nissan cars but when we needed a big SUV for the family it was this or Excursion, we liked the Suburban better (at the time). Now we absolutely hate it. Several major defects straight from the factory. Those were repaired under warranty by the rude Chevy service department. Since then, it has been nothing but problems ever since. Electrical problems, mechanical problems, leaks, air conditioner, cheap pieces breaking off, transmission problem, starter, alternator, service engine light, cooling fan, cd player and radio, fuel pump, you name it it has had to be replaced. Our Nissan Pathfinder we had before this went 125k miles before a single problem. The piece of junk Suburban is the completely opposite. And we didn't get a lemon, my good friend got a 2000 Suburban and had 3 times as many problems as us. Left them stranded all the time. The y got rid of it shortly after warranty ended, they only owned for a few years. I am so glad we finally replaced ours. Aside from disgraceful quality, it is slow and has poor handling even for a large SUV. Braking distances are frighteningly long. The front seats are comfortable, but 2nd and 3rd rows are horrible after 15 minutes. As usual, the Americans were behind with technology and the features and amenities on this are disappointing. The only good thing about the Suburban is all of the trunk room. The whole family can pack all they want and there is plenty of room. It's great. However, they sacrificed leg room and scrunched seats forward to have the wonderful trunk. Overall, I would not recommend this to a friend.
