What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, SUV
#38 of 184 2001 Tahoe 5300 with Lifter\Rocker noise.
Aug 27, 2002 (10:13 am)
My 2001 Tahoe has developed the telltale "valve tick" symptomatic of collapsed lifters at only 40,000 miles. I have maintained it properly, changing the oil whenever the "message center" told me it was time to do so and have always used synthetic oil. I have not yet started to pursue what if anything Chevy will do for me.
Is there anybody out there who has developed this problem also, and if so what was your experience like?
Inquiring minds want to know!

I had same situation with my 95 suburban. Went on net and found a supplier of OEM radios. Ordered the thing and plugged it in. Nothing to it.
#40 of 184 2001 Tahoe Engine Knock
Sep 06, 2002 (8:09 pm)
Hi, I own a 2001 Tahoe that developed an engine knock at about 5000 miles. The knocking occurs when the car is started and continues for a few minutes. It didn't happen all the time, but it is happening more and more. Any body know what the problem is? (Asked a technician about it,he said "some do that ,nothing to worry about". Is this true?)

I'm considering a new 2002/2003 Z71 Suburban. I am wanting to know two things. One, what are people paying, and two, are there any differences, reliability-wise, between the two years I'm looking at? I have been hearing that $36-37k is a reasonable street price. So, would $38-39k for drive out (including TT&L, delivery, etc.) be reasonable?
Thanks in advance,

#43 of 184 Looking for a reliable, fair mechanic in West LA
Sep 18, 2002 (1:46 pm)
Just moved here from the desert and I have been taking my tahoe to a Chevy Dealership for service. I have had trouble locating a Chevy specialist in the West LA/Santa Monica area that is reliable and fairly priced. The guys at the dealership are very overpriced and I have found them to do shoddy repairs. Does anyone have a suggestion for a mechanic???

I bought my Z71 suburban (white) for 34K listed for 43K. It was an end of year (02)and had some demo miles (4000). I have dealt with demos before and never had any problems. Some folks dislike demo's but I like a good deal. Have had zero problems to date.
#45 of 184 2000 Suburban with cracked block
Sep 23, 2002 (2:39 am)
We were on vacation 600 miles away from home and had engine trouble. To make a long story short the Chevy Dealer told us we had a cracked block and it would cost between 5300 and 6300 for a new engine. We had 68,000 miles on it and were told there was no warranty left. We had pretty much always serviced it at our local dealer and are stunned at this happening.
Now that we are home I am wondering if anyone knows where we can go for factory assistance. I prefer names over just calling in and complaining.
Any assistance would sincerely be appreciated.
#46 of 184 Axle/hub failure ??
Sep 27, 2002 (2:50 pm)
We had an incident today where control of our Tahoe was lost with an initial veering to the left. When the vehicle came to rest the left rear hub assembly was folded under the vehicle. Has anyone seen any similar failures? Thanks!
