2008 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Reviews
The car looks great. Many options. The engine is powerful. We've had electrical issues with it since the day we bought it. I've replaced the computer, all of the door locks. The cruise control hasn't worked in a year. I had to replace the alternator a year ago. One day the entire dashboard shut down, stayed off until I turned off and restarted the car. I've replaced both of the hub assemblies, was told this is a common failure. Need to replace the running light on the front right, but apparently you need to remove the tire to do so (according to the service manual). Today the oil pressure dropped to zero and I think I'm going to need to replace the oil pump, but I wouldn't doubt it if it was just the sending unit since everything else electrical has fried. Oh, and there's a leak in the fuel line. I've always purchased Chevys, but this one is truly a lemon. I'll never buy another Suburban. If this one was paid off I'd trade it in on a Toyota pickup, but until it is I'll have to keep shoveling money into it. 80k miles.
