1996 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #4

Nov 272001


  • miles


A broken bolt on driver's side seat track anchor caused seat to move while driving. Dealer / manfacturer were notified. Feel free to provide any further information.

- Ocean Spring, MS, USA

problem #3

Feb 012000

Suburban 4WD

  • miles
The bracket securing the driver's seat broke. I know of at least 3 other people that have had the same problem. Each has had to have the bracket reinforced and re-welded. I do not think that this should be happening to vehicles this new. Also, none of the people who have had this same problem are over weight. These seats should not be breaking.

- Midvale, UT, USA

problem #2

Dec 061998


  • miles
Driver's seat brackets were loosening from the anchor frame. This caused the seat to be loose/wobbly whenever making turns. Took to dealer & informed not a manufacturer's defect. The problem of the seat is steadily getting worse.

- San Antonio, TX, USA
