2007 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Reviews

My 2007 had the rear differential go out 2 weeks after the 5 year build date. After 3 letters Chevy paid half. My dealer guaranteed for 23 months and 13,000. died after 13 months and 20,000. MY PROBLEM. Love the car but think I have a lemon. My Tahoe died at 136,000 and this turkey is 118,000 and is leaking again. I have a Ford in my future.

The car is great to drive but is riddled with poor design and poor craftsmanship. Simple things such as cutting our fingers on the door handles because the plastic wrap peels creating sharp edges. Windows that don't open at all if below zero. Windshield wipers that don't spray. Dash board readout lights that die because of poor resister soldering. Stabilitrak that goes on and off. All these add up to a flaky car. Generally it's great to drive when things are working. But Chev produced a clunker that I'm paying to fix.

The big big issue is the 2007 engine is known for burning oil, ring issues and problems. Chev worked on the engine at 60k miles at their cost. But it started smoking again later just out of warranty. Now, I just found out that I had a dead cylinder that then caused the engine to burn up. Rather pissed at the whole situation.

I bought the suburban because it was supposed to run forever. turns out my Ford Escort was more dependable.

4x4 LT model and I love it. We now have 64K on this vehicle and it still drives like new. Used in snow a couple of time in some very hilly country and it handled beautifully. This is the best vehicle I've ever owned with the fewest problems.

Have a 2007 Burb, just rolled over 100K, still looks like new. The wife still drive the 02 tahoe to work, and with 248K on it, with no engine, tranny work done. Very happy with the Burb and hope to get 250K out of it.
