thanks for the suggestion on shock replacements. I've heard Bilsteins are great - sounds like a good idea.
#1674 of 4104 Thanks !! water leak carpet TSB
Sep 04, 2001 (3:15 pm)
Thanks guys for the responses.I had all the wires put through the grommet by a car alarm place today. Costs me $140 (which is still a hell of alot cheaper than putting all my strobes and lights in by by emergency light place) Anyway it is pouring here in NJ and guess what? it's still leaking, I guess I'll have to tell them to check the TSB on this.I appreciate your help in this matter.
#1675 of 4104 GMS Pricing Follow up
Sep 04, 2001 (5:32 pm)
Picked up my 01 YXL last week in the Columbus, Ohio area and this is what I paid. For a MSRP of $43,303.00 the purchase price ( before taxes and other charges) came to 38,110.00.
It was nice to have a fixed price going into this.
#1676 of 4104 2001 Suburban Purchase
Sep 10, 2001 (10:40 am)
We've been searching and searching for the perfect SUV, not only in options, but price as well and have been monitoring the postings for awhile.
Finally our searching came to an end this weekend. My work of calling dealer after dealer bidding them against each other finally paid off.
We purchased a new 2001 4WD Suburban LT w/Autoride and towing package, plus the color I wanted for $34,400.
The original MSRP was $43,056, I think we got quite a deal.
It was definitely worth the work and now I'm a little bummed out because the excitement of the search is over, but I'm very happy with our new purchase.
#1677 of 4104 Pulling to the right...
Sep 14, 2001 (3:16 pm)
I bought a 2001 Suburban in May, and was very happy with it. However, it now pulls to the right (there are other problems, but I would like to solve this one first). I brought it to one dealer who "could not duplicate the problem". I brought it to another who aligned the front wheels... It worked for about 2K miles, but its happening again. My front Goodyear tires are feathering. The vehicle has 6,600 miles and is not driven poorly to cause improper alignment.
Is anyone else having this problem?
#1678 of 4104 Pulling to the right
Sep 16, 2001 (5:39 pm)
I also had the problem. At 20K miles. No reason for it but the dealer said it's common on the 4wd. Ruined the front tires. Dealer said if I had the alignment done before 7500 miles they would have paid for it and taken care of the tires. Thanks alot. Also heard of some trucks 4wd problem with some components engaging even though the indicator says 2wd.

These trucks SHOULD NOT PULL TO THE RIGHT.
I've had 4 fullsize GM SUVs since 1995 and all but the 2001 YukonXL pulled to the right. Every time I took them to the dealer they would say "Alighment within specs". I paid to have the alignment done by an outside shop on the first two. With the third, I took the printout from the alighment shop to show the alignment was indeed out of spec, and the dealer paid the alignment cost. The GM trucks have one of the alignment parameters as not adjustable from the factory. To have the aligment fixed, a plate has to be drilled out, and an adjustment kit has to be installed. GM has these kits, the dealers just don't want to install them. Once dealer told me that fit and finish warrentee items and alignments are not reimbursed by GM and the dealer has to eat the cost. That's why the push back so hard on doing the work. I've concluded that the factory aligment jig where they weld the plate is off as nearly every GM truck owner I've talked to says they pull to the right. I got lucky with my latest truck, but a good alignment shop can easily fix it, and so should the dealer...joe

Saw a couple of posts mentioning a swap out of the dome lites for reading lites....was this for the new style Burbs?? Tried to search back but to no avail...this has been one of the few pet peeves I have had with the new style Burb...no reading lites in the third row....
