2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Recalls
The retainer clip for the fuel rail pulse damper may fracture and allow the damper to come loose from the fuel rail. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the engine fuel rail pulse damper free of charge. The recall began August 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 06080.
The second row center seat belt routing may make it difficult to position correctly on smaller passengers. If the seat belt rides up to fit around the abdomen, the risk of internal injury is increased in a crash. Dealers will cut the guide loop, remove a portion of the loop, and the remaining sides should be folded over and secured with a retainer. The recall began July 21, 2005. The GM recall number is 05037.
On vehicles equipped with the Bosch hydraulic brake booster, the boost pressure accumulator may crack and break away from the hydro-boost assembly during normal operation. If this were to happen while the hood is open, fragments from the accumulator could injure people standing in the immediate area. The loss of fluid while driving would cause increased steering and braking effort and a crash could occur without warning. Dealers will test the hydro-boost assembly for function of the two-function valve. If the hydro-boost assembly fails the test, it will be replaced free of charge. The recall began March 23, 2005. The GM recall number is 05006.

I have a 2005 Suburban 1500 -4 WD and I have never done any major work on it . We love this car, and right now it has 185,000 miles and it runs very good. It does have a rattle noise in the exhaust ( muffler), and the front blower for the heat and ac is not currently working steady, other than that it is great, I would buy another one.
Had 198,000 miles on my vehicle when the motor locked up. Had to purchase a new motor. My husband's 1994 Silverado has 300,000 on the original motor..... what went wrong with the Suburban that I thought would last me forever. Instrument cluster is out.... not giving me any oil pressure readings, panel lights out and not showing proper gear on dash.
