2001 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Reviews

First suburban we've owned. Had it for over 100,000 miles. Fuel pump went out, but it was a recall item. Alternator went out at 165,00 miles; easy fix. I guess they don't last forever. Had a problem with the rear differential, cost $1500, but still cheaper than a buying a new car. Overall runs well; best for short road trips. Would buy another one. Great for big families.
great truck smooth,quiet and dependable this is my 3rd suburban sold the first 2 at 200k+ still ran great. 48k to go on this one. BUY AMERICAN SUPPORT THIS COUNTRY
Good vehicle
