Chevrolet Tahoe, SUV

My 2001 Suburban LS has just over 6000 miles and my rear driver side power window just quit. When it first happened both rear windows would not respond. The passenger side window starting working again right away, but the driver side won't budge. For those of you that have had yours fail and then fixed, have they been okay after the fix? Will this be a pain in the neck reoccuring problem or once it is fixed it is fine?
Second topic: What does everone think of the Pennzoil Multigrade oil with Purebase. The brochure talks about many of the pluses that I have heard others on this conference talk about when recommending Mobil 1. Since my Chevy dealer is using Pennzoil do you think they would us Mobil 1 if I requested it or will they give me some bs about it voiding warranty? Thanks....

Cliff, an interesting poll to do or mayby some of out participents could include in their posts is their average milage by dividing the run hours available at the odometer site into there vehicle milage. Mine works out to 39.3 MPH Mike

Bill, both my rears have failed. It takes a while for the dealer to get them. While waiting for my first one to come in the second one failed. I have read other posts where the replaced ones are failing too. I intend to wait until they re-engineer these things So i don't make unessesary trips and wear and tear on the door panels. Im sure someone on this site will post when new part numbers on these motors come out. An other GM wonder. Mike
#11 of 6469 Brake wear
Dec 04, 2000 (6:05 am)
I just rotated my Wilderness LE's for the second time tonight with 19,100 miles on them. Very little wear showing and its even wear. Im impressed at the brake wear(or lack of). The front pads don't appear to have any reduced thickness. The backs are a little thiner. This is interesting because the backs will usually last longer. These trucks must be engineered to have the rears do more braking as the rears are actually bigger than the fronts. All the cars ive had, the reverse has been true. Extrapolating from what i see at this milage i think i can get mayby 60 to 75 thousand out of the rears and 100 thousand out of the fronts. I am easy on brake though. Mike

Your average miglage is 31.7 MPH, you must be sitting at more red light than me. Mike

They a certainly there for decorative purposes. On a clear evening press the fog light button while sitting in the truck. You won't notice the sightest bit of difference in illumination.

They do add a little extra light, but definity not as much light as one would expect if they were supposed to be 'driving' lights. I find they give extra light to the sides and give a wider field of view.
