Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Guides

Facts You Didn't Know about the Chevrolet C1500 Suburban

  • The Suburban was originally intended as a military vehicle. The first unit came off the assembly line in 1936. Its use was intended for National Guard and Civilian Conservation Corps units. It shared a resemblance with commercial trucks and had provisions for seating eight passengers at most.

  • Having such a long history since its inception, the Chevrolet Suburban has a record of being a heavily modified truck. It has changed its appearance over 25 times, spanning twelve generations of models. The latest model is scheduled to be released in 2013.

  • For over twelve generations, the Chevrolet Suburban has had one main problem: fuel economy. With such large dimensions, heavy weight, and a powerful engine to match, no wonder the Chevrolet Suburban needs more gas per mile. According to the EPA, its MPG when driving in the city and on the highwayare 14 and 20 respectively.

  • With it having measurements of 222 inches and weighing 6300 lbs., it holds the record for being the longest non-commercial vehicle in GM's stable. It has also been the subject of criticisms such as inadequate garage space and off-center steering wheels.

  • The Chevrolet Suburban and the GMC Yukon XL has a similar history: they're basically twins who share the same name and identical appearances. The 'Suburban' name was dropped from the GMC name and was renamed 'Yukon XL' in 2000, but that didn't stop the similarity: today, they're both built in the same factory.

  • The Suburban, with its wide frame and its 'carry all, haul anything' reputation, has had a lot of uses. There was a time when it was used as a military vehicle. Today, the Suburban's uses range from being a police car, a fire chief's vehicle , an EMS fly-car, or even a luxury car a limousine.

  • The Suburban has also seen uses as a car for security. In fact, security forces for foreign dignitaries use them. The most popular security force to have a fleet of Suburbans is the US Secret Service, which uses black Suburbans. There have been occasions when these have been used to transport the President of the United States when he goes to less formal engagements.

7 Fun Facts About the Chevrolet Suburban

The Chevy Suburban is actually the longest continuous use auto nameplate in production. The manufacturing of this vehicle began in 1935 for the 1935 US model year and hasn't stopped ever since. This vehicle spans 11 generations, each of which is unique in its own right.


Today's Suburban is a popular choice for big families, but it was primarily intended for commercial and rural use. In fact, the original first-gen Chevy Suburban offered a station wagon body and was specifically built for National Guard units and Civilian Conservation Corps units.


Much of the vehicle's body was actually constructed from wood. Even the single sun visor on the driver's side was made out of wood. The materials used to construct the Chevy Suburban makes it look even more of an antique today and only goes to show how far this vehicle has come since its birth in the 1930s.


The Chevrolet Suburban is a war veteran. From 1943 to 1945, Chevrolet did not produce civilian vehicles due to the Second World War. The Suburban, however, was used as a military vehicle during this time. In 1946, Chevrolet picked up where it left off and continued to produce and improve top-notch Suburbans.


The Suburban has recently been used as police cars, fire chief's vehicles, and EMS fly-cars. In fact, when the President of the United States attends less formal engagements, the United States Secret Service uses fully-armored, black Suburbans as means of transportation.


It was only in 1998 that the Suburban, badged as the Holden, introduced a right-hand-drive version of the Suburban for the New Zealand and Australia market. This marked the venture of the Suburban into new territory, as well as the continuing growth of the Chevrolet brand.


The Chevrolet Suburban is so enthralled in US society that you're bound to see it in music videos, movies, and TV series. Suburbans can be spotted in several shows and movies like Daylight, Running Scared, Toy Soldiers, Law and Order, Numb3rs, and even in The Simpsons. You're likely to see this vehicle being used by law enforcement agents or government officials on TV.

Common Chevrolet Suburban Problems

Chevrolet has grown to be one of top auto makers in the country and around the world. The Suburban is a testament to the durable and reliable nature of Chevy vehicles, but no auto is without flaws. In fact, the Suburban has received its fair share of complaints over the course of its production. The 2007 Suburban was probably the worst, with several customers finding much to be desired with regards to the engine, interior accessories, and electrical components. To give you an idea of the major faults of this vehicle, the most prominent Chevy Suburban problems are tackled below.

Excessive oil consumption

Most prevalent with the 2007 Suburban were complaints regarding oil consumption. Customers said that they experienced significant oil loss between oil changes. Others have pointed out that the Check Oil Light would come on too often due to a lack of oil. As you may know, the lack of engine oil can lead to unwanted damage to engine components. Unfortunately, it would be quite costly to have this problem remedied. Some people would recommend that you have the engine replaced, that you have your cylinder heads replaced, or that you add a splash guard to the oil pan.

Electrical problems

One other common Suburban problem, which occurred mostly with the 2004 model, was the poor performance of the electrical system. There have been numerous complains of the speedometer malfunctioning, the battery dying, and the heat and audio control panel not responding. In addition to that, other users were displeased with the heated seats and power seat, which were defective. These problems really hampered the driving experience of 2004 Suburban owners. Luckily, Chevrolet was able to address such problems before releasing the succeeding Suburban.

Steering problems

Steering defects was another area of concern for the 2004 Chevy Suburban. Many drivers noticed an inconvenient knocking with any turn of the wheel. Furthermore, the car reportedly veered to the side while being driven, which really put passenger safety at risk. And lastly, motorists reported having trouble keeping the vehicle's front end aligned, a problem which was attributed to a faulty steering system.

Chevrolet C1500 Suburban Tips: Three Things That Need to be Replaced and When to Do So

The Chevrolet Suburban is one of the longest-running models in the United States. It's been the go-to vehicle of families or those who need class-leading passenger and cargo-carrying capacity and a solid towing capability. Your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban might be the light version, but you still get strong powertrain, stout underpinnings, and spacious seating, which offers comfort. However, no matter how great your vehicle is, it's going to be nothing if you don't know how to maintain it. Below are some maintenance tips for some of your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban components—what they're for and when to have them replaced:

  • Air filters

Your vehicle has two kinds of air filters—the cabin air filter and the engine air filter. Both of them are essential and both need replacement at a recommended interval. The cabin air filter is responsible for cleaning the air that comes into the interior of your vehicle through the heating, air conditioning, and ventilation system. Recommended replacement interval for this filter is every 12,000 or 15,000 miles. But it really depends on the kind of driving conditions that you take. It's better to check the filters and replace them if they become too dirty and cause airflow reduction in the HVAC system.

The engine air filter, on the other hand, is responsible for cleaning the air that enters the engine. Remember that the more freely the air enters the engine, the better its performance. Hence, you need to make sure that your engine air filter is always clean. Clogged and dirty engine air filter decreases acceleration by 6% to 11% according to a study conducted by the US Department of Energy. It is recommended to change this filter at the interval of 45,000 miles. This number should be decreased if you are in an area with severe driving conditions.

  • Brake Pads

The brake system is one of the most important components of a vehicle. It is the one responsible for stopping the vehicle when you need to, which also makes it necessary for safe driving. The brake system has several components including the brake pads. During normal usage of your Chevrolet C1500 Suburban's brakes, the brake pads wear out and become thinner. You need to inspect your brake pads and replace them if the thickness is less than 3mm. You have to replace the brake pads in pairs. For example, if you need to replace the ones at the front wheels, you need to replace both as is also the case with the rear wheels. Recommended interval for brake pad replacements is between 30,000 to 35,000 miles. However, it could be shorter for city driving.

  • Belts

Your vehicle's engine is composed of several mechanical accessories such as the water pump, an alternator, power steering pump, and AC compressor. All these accessories are being driven by a drive belt. The engine has one or two belts; these are made of durable rubber-based materials. Durable as they may be, they will wear out eventually. You have to check the belts for cracks, cuts, or missing chunks. You have to replace a damaged belt or you won't be able to drive your Suburban. Recommended replacement interval for these belts is between 40,000 and 70,000 miles.
