I would like everyone to know that it is very strong! Built like a fortress!

I bought my Chevy Suburban in 2000 brand new. At first, I thought that it was too big and a bit overkill for my family. As time went on, our little family grew. I had five girls all in ballet and we took them everywhere in our awesome truck. It was strong and always made me feel safe. In bad winters, we powered through the snow like nothing! We had very miner mechanical issues with it, and routine maintenance kept her going. on long car rides,we always felt comfortable. I love my Suburban and would buy one again without question. Since I don't need as many seats now, I would really consider a Tahoe.

Chevrolet suburban still rocking.

I purchased this 2001 suburban in July of 2017 and so far has needed minor repairs. The power steering hose had a leak and I have had to replace the spark plugs. Also, I get the oil changed every 3 months. I have to add oil quite often and the coolant is leaking somewhere. So at 237, 000 miles, it seems to be doing pretty good. It is been a reliable vehicle thus far. My daughter feels safe in it. I do a lot of in town driving so it needs quite a bit of gas. Overall, I would rate this vehicle at a #8. Very blessed to have it and would highly recommend a Chevrolet suburban.

Suburban great family vehicle.

The suburban is very reliable even during winter and cold. It gets great gas mileage it has 3 rows of seating and a lot of room. In the back. It is a good family vehicle and great for kids. The downside is if you need to get parts for it especially under the hood parts it can only match the same year which can be difficult to find and buy. Yes it has its problems and flaws but overall a good vehicle especially if you live somewhere that is a colder climate. This is the only vehicle I have had so far that has not had a lot of issues with cold or winter.

Dependability of Chevy suburban.

My Chevy suburban 2001, is the best vehicle I have ever purchased. It is reliable. I have had very few automotive problems out of it. Safety wise I would never trust any other type of vehicle over my suburban. As my family has grown in recent years it has been able to support us and to even haul a trailer on the back when traveling the distance. Even when I was parked and hit in the back the impact wasn't felt as it was in my van or Malibu. I just do not think there's a better vehicle in the market than the suburban line under Chevy.

She is one tough cookie but tough on gas as well. Especially in rural areas.

My car has had a transmission problem for about a year now that I haven't been able to afford to fix, but she still keeps trucking! Her main problem is that it sort sticks when switching gears around 45 mph, but only for a second. If you remove and reapply gas to the accelerator it shifts right in to place. Recently her injectors started to go out but keep in mind these are all original parts! Almost 18 year old parts that are just now starting to be problematic. That is good I am my book!

- Alex R

Life with the suburban vehicle love the color of the vehicle most.

It drives like a car, 8 passenger vehicle, reliable, great performance, continues to run with high mileage where most could start giving problems, the biggest problem with this vehicle is the tire sizes, they can be very costly, you want to use ceramic brakes, beautiful color, it is not like most suburban's that is one color, is a two-tone color tan and burgundy which is really nice people notice it a lot.

- Debra V

Interesting detail on this vehicle is the paint seems to last.

I love this model it very good on gas and the seats are very roomy if you have a big family or your going out for the night or on a trip you will have plenty of room even when buying one with high miles to my experience they still drive as new the only thing I will say is the power controls o. The doors do seem to go out of the and in turn you cannot use them for your windows or doors locks.

- Ashton S

It is reliable comfortable transportation in any weather.

My suburban has been the best vehicle I ever owned. I drive it in any weather, it has never been involved in an accident, is detailed every 2 weeks, has about 170, 000 miles on it now, and looks almost good as new! It has been so dependable. The only thing ever replaced was a window roller motor and of course regular maintenance. Hope to continue driving it for a while.

- Vicky S

Chevy suburban - great family vehicle.

Runs well for being over 15 years old. Very comfortable. Gets 12 mpg, which is not great, but it is a great family vehicle. Seats 7 comfortably. The only issues are an exhaust leak, which we fixed. It features a ves movie player with wireless headphones, and climate control through. The back seat folds down and can be taken out to perform more like a truck.

- Kristina H

Chevy suburban 2001. An old vehicle that has stood the test of time.

My suburban has weathered many years. It continues to be a dependable vehicle for me and my family. I do the scheduled maintenance fairly regularly. The leather seats have worn down, I have bucket seats in front and middle of vehicle and I love those instead of a bench seat. The back door is a lift up, I like that I have an uninterrupted view in my mirror.

- Ginny Y

This truck was built to last.

I love that my suburban has plenty of room! We love to camp and kayak and this gives us plenty of room to haul many people and our gear! I love a truck because it makes me feel safer than a small car! I love my truck because everything still works, even though it is a little older vehicle. It has been well maintained! Also, my truck is very dependable.

- Jamie H

Suburbans are the kings of the road!

Long lasting 4x4 vehicle that can tow heavy equipment and haul many people. It is durable and tough. It can go through very dense forest and rides very comfortably. The only issue is that it is a gas hog but that is to be expected with the type of vehicle it is. It already has over 250,000 miles on it and is still going strong.

- Rhonda B

It is entirely blacked out.

Plenty of cargo and passenger room. I love this truck because there are two different heat/ac units, one for the front and one for the back two rows/ cargo area... It also had a sunroof. I am in love with the stock model Bose sound system. Most people that hear it are surprised that it is not an aftermarket audio addition.

- Stephanie W

Suburban: super parent vehicle.

My car has held up very well over the past 17 years. Only had to change the transmission once and replace the starter a couple of times. Spacious interior for moving or hauling the kids down to the beach. My only complaint would have to be the fact that is sucks gas and oil, every two plus hour trip it must be refilled.

- Fred Q

Old suburban farm vehicle.

We have an older(2001) suburban. It's been a good vehicle. Does use oil consistently and has had minor things happen. Wish it was easier to get into 3rd row seating. Would be nice if drivers seat had an arm rest instead of just middle console. Rear door latch doesn't always work and have to unlock with key.

- Jenny S

Lots of mileage still a reliable vehicle.

Tail light electrical shortage issues. Good reliable vehicle with regular maintenance check ups. Travel vehicle with 450,000 plus miles still runs great. Electric window issues four wheel drive issues does not always work. Maintenance check light comes on without any vehicle problems will not go off.

- Cheryl M

The Chevy suburban: a great family vehicle!

It needs a little work but overall I love the vehicle! Gas mileage sucks but it is helped me move a bunch of things, helped my sister move, and a bunch more! Fits a lot of passengers and is overall a smooth ride. I love how safe I feel in it and how bright the lights are at night. Great family car.

- Conrad S

We have loved it and used it for many years.

Still runs after all these years. Repairs have been from west and tear. Love the heated seats. Lots of room. After moving several kids to and from college and long trips. It had served us very well. I cannot imagine what we would do without it. I know we will have to replace it soon. Will be sad.

- Pat B

Great family sized vehicle.

The seats are very comfortable. Smooth driving performance, great for a family vehicle. There is not any problems with it, except for having cargo doors instead of having a hatchback. It cools/heats in a quick and short period of time. Features are included with air control for the back seaters.

- Kelly C

Suburban 2001, great for road trips and big families.

Great for large families and road trips. Waist a lot of gas but the power and strength is good for what it carries. It runs great been with it for a couple of years already it's a reliable car. Seats are descent to take a nap but not like your bed, lots of space for whatever you want to use it.

- Wendy Y

Our Chevy suburban was a great purchase for us.

Our Chevy suburban has been put to the test. It stands tall and may just outlive me. It travels great on both long and short vacations. The 4 wheel drive, heated front seats and auto start allows great handling in all weather conditions especially handy when it comes to north Dakota winters.

- Tammy M

Still reliable after 18 years.

At 185, 000 miles and 18 years old, we still feel comfortable taking our suburban on road trips. We have started having a few hundred dollar repairs, but overall she is still sound and working quite well. It is comfortable for our large family to travel in and offers plenty of luggage space.

- Cindy J

I love my Chevrolet suburban.

I love my suburban. It handles well for a large vehicle. It is extremely comfortable on long rides. I have had no major problems with my Chevy suburban. It hauls things big and small. We love to take it camping in the mountains because everyone and everything fits nicely in it.

- Terry B

Why my family loves our suburban.

Big truck so poor gas mileage but absolutely love it! Love 3rd row seating and it's very comfortable to drive. Only issues we have had was just general maintenance kinds of things. Stuff you should pay attention to anyway. Great family vehicle, and does a wonderful job towing.

- Tammy G

It fits 6 kids 4 in car seats.

It fits my family. We have never had problems or complaints. The gas is a little expensive I guess. It's never broken down. The heat and air has always worked fine. It fits several car seats. The seats fold down. It's the only vehicle that I have loved and had no issues with.

- Ashley L

Will need upkeep. Very roomy and smooth ride.

Replaced transmission and tons of other parts when first bought a year ago. Drives very smooth and no other issues since then. Very roomy and the fold down seats make it easy is you need extra cargo space. The third row makes taking large groups of people with you easy.

- Jessica T

I love my vehicle! Have had it going on 4 years now.

It is blue!,third row! Sitting in 26 inch chrome wheels! Tinted windows! Has a system in it! A rebuild transmission.,runs really good! I wouldn't trade it for nothing. It is been slightly lowered! Heating seats up front! The heat will run u out! The ac is very cold.

- Christine K

The Chevy suburban is a very comfortable ride.

Our suburban really has a lot of comfortable space. It does not get the best of fuel mileage, but it is pretty good for its size. It rides smoothly, and is great for long trips. For it is age it is still very reliable. I really enjoy the heated seats and the space.

- Judy Y

Great highway mileage. Roomy interior.

Beautiful vehicle. Has held up over time. It has a lot of miles but has been fantastic. We've replaced many parts of it but it was all from normal wear and tear. It is used for daily commute and occasional long distance trips. Great highway mileage! Ok in town.

Decent suburban for its age

I really like my vehicle. It has rarely given me trouble. I've used it for driving to school and work and long road trips. The only issues I've had with my suburban is the air conditioning has had to be fixed twice. But overall, decent vehicle for it's age.

- Tania T

My vehicle is safe and well taken care of. It is serviced regularly.

That I am happy with my vehicle.

I love my vehicle. I love how it drives. And I don't have any problems with it. I love that it has a lot of room where I am able to move any way I can. And I can take my family anywhere I can. I think the only problem I had with my vehicle was the starter.

- Gloria O

Great family car. Great business ride. Reliable and impressive!

I can haul people and stuff at the same time and still get decent mpg. I am getting the same I did with our minivan.

I live in northern mn so the 4 wheel drive is great. I also love all the space I have 3 boys and another baby on the way it is nice that I can get my monthly Costco groceries and still have room for my kids comfortably.

- Be L

I like the seating capacity. I always wanted this type of vehicle, so I'm happy to finally have one. It is getting old and well used , so it'd be nice to have a newer one, but I can't complain

- Patricia S

Why Chevy Suburbans outlast the competition.

The Chevy Suburban is a reliable family vehicle. Performing well in all types of weather while getting fairly good gas mileage, my Suburban has almost 300,000 miles and is still going strong!

- David K

If you are looking to save on gas this is not the vehicle for you.

I love this vehicle. It is roomy, and comfortable. I have 3 kids and it fits us all perfect. The back has plenty of room for anything else. It is a gas hog though.

- Lindsey L

It is mine. And I own it. My car is also red which I like./.

I am really short and the car sits really high. I would like a car that sits lower. It is really hard to put a car seat in. It would also like a smaller car.
