It’s not worth it to spend a $60,000 at all and Car doesn’t do his job after 56,000 miles engine and transmission start making noise we have to replace the whole engine and the transmission rest of the things was fine b4 but when dealership. fix engine and transmission basically they xxxx up your whole car the rest of the things get Messed up as well so you really need to do the whole car over even the engine and transmission covered you’going spend lotta money out of your pocket. So don’t buy I have been own Chevy for last 20 years that’s it

Most unreliable vehicle I have ever owned.

Brand new - doors whistling loudly when driving on windy day. Within a few months engine cutting out/trembling when idling - dealership said nothing is wrong - fuel module and fuel pump had to be replaced at 1 year old. Engine turns over multiple times before starting. At 2 years old, new brake vacuum and belt needed for slow braking failure. Braking failure!!!! Replacement parts on back order with no arrival date in site. I have been out of a vehicle for weeks at this point. Windshield has more rock spats and cracks than I have experienced in my entire driving career. I was so excited to purchase this vehicle for my large family - we saved for 3 years before buying. We love the space and interior. However: I can’t begin to tell you how disappointed I am with the reliability and performance of this vehicle. I have been a loyal Chevrolet/GMC customer, but at this point I won’t buy another vehicle from them until some major improvement occurs. I also miss the metal bumpers from the older models.

Junk with poor customer care . 72k in the trash

Problem after problem , Gm not willing to help with a vehicle that was at the time 2 model years old . A/C issues at less then 60k , Injector issues from 60k forward mis-fire codes , known issue that would not fix.... Oil pan leak they refuse to fix and quote 2300. to fix at 65k. and lastly 94k miles Transmission Blows up lost 3rd -6th,refuse to assist with this , 6000. to fix ,. At this point we have had the vehicle 28 months still owed close to 50k on a 0.0% loan , Traded it in for a Toyota and take a 24k Negative hit on the suburban but also relieved that the problem vehicle is gone ,and the stress about what would go next is also. Would not Recommend Chevrolet to anyone ,even my enemies ,Customer care is horrible .

2017 Chevrolet Suburban Overview


The 2017 Chevrolet Suburban is a full-size SUV that seats up to nine passengers across three rows. It competes with the Ford Expedition and Lincoln Navigator. This year, it remains largely unchanged.

It is offered in three trim levels: LS, LT, and LTZ.

The biggest difference between the Tahoe and Suburban is overall size, with the longer Suburban offering more interior room for passengers and more cargo space as well. The new Suburban’s styling is boxier and less rounded than the previous version, with high side walls that are more vertical and don’t round off at the top, giving the large SUV an imposing stance to match its impressive size. Heated side mirrors and 18-inch wheels are standard, with larger wheels, a power liftgate, and fog lamps optional.

Under the hood, the Suburban gets one of GM’s new EcoTec3 engines, a 355-hp, 5.3-liter V-8 that features direct injection and cylinder deactivation, which improves fuel economy. It is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive (FWD) Suburbans can tow up to 8,300 pounds, while four-wheel drive (4WD) models top out at 8,000 pounds. Electric power steering has also finally made it to the Suburban, which further increases efficiency.

Inside, the Suburban has a premium cloth interior with front bucket seats, a 60/40 split-folding second-row seat, and a split-folding third-row bench seat. The front-row seats can be replaced by a front bench seat for 3 people. The second-row split-folding seat can be swapped out for a pair of captain’s chairs. Cargo room tops out at 121.1 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down (power folding is available as an option). Standard interior features include HD radio, Bluetooth connectivity, a leather wrapped steering wheel, remote keyless entry, and remote vehicle start. Also available are MyLink connectivity, up to six USB ports to charge devices, push-button start, and a Blu-ray rear entertainment system with two screens.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, electronic stability control, traction control, and thankfully a rearview camera and rear parking sensors, almost a must on a vehicle of this size. Much like the interior, available safety technology has taken a leap as well with forward collision alerts, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alerts, and adaptive cruise control all optional.
