2006 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Reviews
'06 4X4 purchased new. Had tranny rebuilt in '09 at ~75K miles. Just had the front half shafts (drive shafts) replaced at 105K miles. Replaced 4X4 selector switch in '10. It just started putting the transfer case in neutral with 2Hi selected, workaround is to keep it in Auto...going to replace the switch again. Just replaced the plugs (2nd set) and plug wires to clear up an intermittant random misfire problem. Engine now purrs like new again. I've run AmsOil in it since new. I ignore the change oil warning system and just change oil and filter 2/year and have oil analyzed...no issues reported from lab yet. Overall great large family vehicle which gets good mileage for something so large--19 Hwy!
