I've had very good luck with this automobile 180,000 miles and all I've have replaced "battery". Buy Chevy, great autos.
I have owned my 2001 Suburban since it was new. It now has 146,000 miles on it. I have always kept the vehicle well maintained as I do with all of my vehicles. This Suburban has been a great vehicle to travel with. It has been driven across this country many times. It is a great on the highway. Now for the bad. The ABS brake module has been replaced 3 times. The rear tailgate window hinge has b...
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.
