Most reported Chevrolet Suburban 1500 problems
Had to replace due to excess wear. Suburban not driven hard - these failed prematurely. In addition, repair by replacing just ball joints made 3 times more expensive due to GM design. The upper control arms had to be replaced making the parts very expensive and the labor 3 times more than normal.
I can't believe that the 07 Suburban oil consumption problem hasn't been mentioned on this site, it is everywhere else. Many 07 Suburbans burn a lot of oil - GM will try to tell you that a quart every 1500 - 2000 is normal - which is just ridiculous. If you burn a quart every 1000 as mine did they will repair it (if you are under 100,000 miles). It's a big repair, major engine rebuild. In mine, there was a lot of valve train damage, so it'...
A burning smell may develop due to an oil leak form one or both valve cover gaskets. Resealing the valve cover will generally correct this concern. However, the valve covers should be inspected and replaced if damaged.
The pitman arm and/or lower ball joints may wear causing loose steering and alignment issues. Replacement of worn components will be necessary before the alignment can be properly set to specification.
At low speeds vehicle went in to traction control mode, dealer spent 10000 mile trying to figure it out. Problem was front wheel sensors, fixed at 41,000 mile. Now at 76,000 mile same problem.
turn signals work fine until brakes are applied and then at least triple in blinking speed
Growling Noise from front differential - replaced side and carrier bearings
The rear brake lights overheat resulting in the plastic lamp bulb connectors melting and finally the lamp itself breaks a filament. The service lamp filament which is the in the same bulb continues to operate. I tried fitting LED bulbs to try and reduce the current drain, but both burnt out as soon as the brakes were applied.
Whining noise 40 mph - 60 mph - louder under load - quiet when coasting. Ring and Pinion going bad
Noticed white colored goo on oil dipstick during oil addition. Dealer indicated a failed head gasket. Solution is to replace the head gasket. Will also replace the valve cover which the dealer indicates is now a better design than the original cover. Dealer estimate is approx. $1200.
