problem #1

Sep 232003

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,900 miles


1. 2003 Suburban Z71, rattle and clunk in steering column, nothing loose in the steering just clunking noise while driving. The steering shaft has been replaced 3 times. 2. second row middle seat belt failed to retract and unable to fasten belt without force. Corrected 3. latches located on the back of the second row seats to hold up the third row floor boards when using third row have broken numerous times (latches are plastic which makes no sense) 4. paint on the rear bumper and left by gas tank fill rusted (this was corrected) 5. driver seat motor runs after vehicle turned off. This has been brought to the dealers attention many times and they were unable to duplicate problem. 6. rear access door weather striping stretched. 7. truck failed to start for numerous reasons other then dead battery. Fuel tank pump module went bad. Crank shaft position sensor went bad. The most recent of 1/20/07 has not yet been determined. This is a major problem as the truck is not reliable. Infact my 1994 Ford Explorer is more reliable then this truck problems began in 2003, starting with 2nd row seat belt issues 8. excessive squeaking from front end, numerous complaints made to dealer, belts replaced and pulleys cleaned several times then pulleys readjusted. 9. left rear door failed to open.
