The Suburban is a huge, old-fashioned, truck-based SUV; the quintessential family truckster for large families who live beyond the suburbs. What sets it apart from other SUVs is that it provides three rows of seats -- for carrying up to seven, eight, or even nine people -- yet still retains generous cargo space, along with a hefty towing capacity.

Alignment

"Have had to have an alignment at least once per year since purchase."

Carl H., WV (2015 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 5.3-L V8)

Robert L., NJ (2015 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 5.3-L V8)

"After a hard winter in Michigan, thought the rough ride was due to roads (and I'm sure most of it was). Mechanic looked at struts and shocks, and the front ones had to be replaced. The LTZ has magnetic ride control, meaning it was a $1,500 repair due to expensive parts"

"Steering column pops/clicks when turning - very annoying, although apparently not a safety issue based on TSB. Also replaced intermediate steering shaft to reduce slop and found lower steering column bearing loose. Overall disappointed with the steering - come on Chevrolet! You've had 100 years to get the steering on the Suburban right!"

Rodger N., CA (2015 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 5.3-L V8)

While being previously remedied for recall 16V-651, the affected vehicles may not have received the complete software update necessary to remedy the recall condition. Without the update, certain driving conditions may cause the air bag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) software to activate a diagnostic test. During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash.
What should you do:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the SDM software. Vehicles that have had a previous air bag deployment will have the SDM replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on August 4, 2017. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782.
