About Chevrolet Suburban
Chevrolet Suburban, as a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV), has been produced by General Motors' Chevrolet Division since 1935. When it was introduced in 1935 for the first time, Chevrolet Suburban became the longest-running nameplate in production as well as one of General Motors' most profitable vehicles. As a SUV that has been produced through twelve generations, Chevrolet Suburban has been awarded as J.D. Power and Associates' Large SUV, 2015 MotorWeek Drivers' Choice for best large SUV and so on.
In 2007 model year, Chevrolet Suburban along with its cousin GMC Yukon XL was released at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show, which marked the beginning of the eleventh generation (2007-2014). There were several trim levels available for this generation Chevrolet Suburban including LS, LT and LTZ equipped with either 2-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive systems. As a 4-door SUV, Chevrolet Suburban got powers from 5.3 L and 6.0 L V8 engines mated to either 4-speed automatic transmission or 6-speed automatic transmission. Then on September 12, 2013, the twelfth-generation Chevrolet Suburban (2014-present) and GMC Yukon XL as well as Yukon Denali XL were unveiled together at the State Fair of Texas. It still offers the same three trim levels carries from the previous generation. However, there is only one 5.3 L V8 engine attached to a 6-speed automatic transmission as powertrain for Suburban now.
Chevrolet Suburban Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
After long-running under different harsh road conditions, Chevrolet Suburban is meant to wear and tear. And once wearing process starts, problems would also pop out. Here are most two common problems happen to it usually for your reference:
The most serious problem is the excessive oil consumption. In such a society with increasing oil price, this problem is really an agony for Chevrolet Suburban owners. According to their experience, deceased gas mileage is only one influence. Engine performance reduced as slow acceleration, overall loss of power, overheating, misfiring, stalling or inability to start happen a lot as well. If your Suburban is showing similar symptoms, spark plug, air filter, oil filter, piston ring (if white or gray smoke exhausted), head gasket and so on.
Second one is the transmission and suspension failure. Transmission failure in Chevrolet Suburban displays as difficulty in shifting gears, which is caused by faulty transfer case seal. As suspension failure shows as excessive vibration while driving, swerving or nose diving while braking, sluggish response in handling as well as uneven tire wear and squealing noise. We can assume that broken shock absorber and torsion bar in Suburban are the culprits.
But in Chevrolet Suburban, you have many other auto parts to take good care of. Headlight is designed to light road conditions ahead and act as warning tools for other drivers and pedestrians. And seat belt is responsible for protecting occupants from any sudden movements. They are both important for driving safety. Door handle is also very useful for convenient entering or exiting from the Suburban. And wiper blade also takes an important responsibility in making sure you could drive safely under good visibility. But as it is made of consuming soft rubber but often works under harsh conditions, so you had better maintain it more often, replacing it every six to twelve months is the proper maintaining method for it. Always remember routine maintenance is the best way to lengthen your Chevrolet Suburban's life expectancy.
