Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Problems
The power door lock actuators may become slow to operate or stop working completely and require replacement.
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.
The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault. The warranty has been extended on some of these units to 7 years or 70,000 miles.

Problem: all at once soft pedal, replaced booster but while installing I knocked off the "do not remove or void warranty" hose connection at the face. Brakes work but still soft pedal? Did a part fall off inside the booster?
Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Recalls
All late model vehicles are equipped with a "Shift interlock" system that prevents vehicles with and automatic transmission from being shifted out of the Park position under certain conditions. Some of these vehicles are being recalled because they may have been assembled with a broken park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear. Failure of these components can allow the shifter to be moved out of the Park position with the ignition key removed or in the off position. This can cause the vehicle to roll away unexpectedly increasing the risk of injury or a crash. Dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary.
The steering gear pitman shaft may not have been adequately hardened and could break. If this occurs, a loss of steering ability will result, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the steering gear and replace the steering gear pitman shaft if necessary to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12005.
The intermediate steering shaft attaching bolts may not have been tightened to the proper specification. This could allow the steering shaft to separate. The driver could experience a loss of steering ability, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and ensure the intermediate steering shaft bolts are tightened to the proper specification. This recall is expected to begin on July 13, 2011. The General Motors recall number is 11191.

This truck has never let me down or stranded. Steller veh...
ONE TOUGH TRUCK. I bought the truck with 72,000 miles. I hauled kids all over the country for sports. About 10 years ago I put 1 ton springs under her and have been using her for hauling weight to and from Reno and Vegas. We live in the center of Nevada so she puts on about half her miles in the dirt in the mountains. I do regular mainenance, the largest item's that has ever failed has been the...
I purchased my 1992 Suburban off the show room floor, twenty years ago and still own it with 75k miles on it. It has made some long trips very loaded to northern Manitoba with no problems except I lost a fan coming back home once. No big deal. I love my suburban and still drive it everyday and it looks as good as it did twenty years ago.
