  1. 2017+ actually. That's as far as I know anyway. 2015 definitely gives you ... Delicate stabilizer links Rear defroster detaches 20k Water pump / pulley 70k Transmission + megatron 95k - 105k Engine lifters/cam 100 - 110k Brake vacuum pump 50k Motor Mount rear drivers side 75k Coolant reservoir leak 75k A/C condenser crack on top drivers side every 60k Premature front inner tire wear , stay on top of wheel alignments Consumes oil more than average. Just some of the quirks. Pin that to your fridge under the #1 Dad magnet. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  2. I know this is a gm forum, and I'm a gm truck owner..... but not a fanboy . We have a lot to talk about in here because there's alot of common issues . Buying a 2015 suburban with 75k is like dating the hottest from your school , except at the 20 year reunion, 4 kids and 3 baby daddies later. The 2015s have a lot of issues and that's the perfect mileage for it them start raining down heavy on you . If possible, try to fork over the extra cash for a 2017 at minimum. New design in 2020 so you can get a nice deal if you hold out. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  3. My self and everyone I know who has this vehicle has this issue . I've experienced this on a 2011, 2013, and my current 2015. The heating has a mind of it's own, cant really figure it out after all these years. Temp can be perfect and then warm air starts coming from the vents , hard to regulate the temp unless the a/c is on . I have had success by putting the a/c on low for about minute , then turning it off . Dont put it on 60 , put it on LO for a minute or 2 , then shut it off . Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  4. If gm acknowledges every issue with these trucks , they do basically have to recall every single truck and give you a new one . I wonder if I can get my money back for my brake vac pump Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. The expedition seems to favor third row leg room rather than cargo . The panoramic roof is really nice , wish my suburban had that for sure. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. Well you see what happened with Volkswagen last year . Just like many companies that are trying to sell a product will exaggerate its capabilities for sales, until their card gets pulled . 26 mpg going downhill in neutral with the wind blowing behind you at 30 mph.

  7. It's pretty much a work truck (luxury car service) I do more idling than most also, yeah about a qt every 2k . I know acouple of other guys with the same 2015 and 16's , we all do it . Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. Sounds pretty normal to me . Mine is usually at 40 when driving and at about 20 - 25 at idle , depends how much oil you have in there . Its normal to see it get to 60 at a cold start. These trucks consume oil also , so be sure to check your oil religiously at least once a week , if not .... you'll definitely have the "Oh shit!" Moment when you pull out your dip stick and its dry as a bone . Adding 2 or 3 quarts between oil changes is the norm . Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. Didn't you see the commercial? Chevy is more reliable than Honda and Toyota
  10. Hey ,glad to see that you decided . I have black on black ,which I really like, but if I were to do it over I'd get the charcoal grey color and 22" wheels the same color as the car or at least with the wheel inserts the same color . On that note ... Black is really nice if the wheels ,grill and trim are also blacked out. It'll take away the airport taxi look so you wont look like me . ya know
  11. I'm guessing you're having an issue such as the brakes going down to the floor at low speeds , like in traffic , or parking. You said that you replaced the booster and vacuum? If it's the problem that I described, then that's a common issue with this truck , it's the brake vacuum pump . If you or your mechanic replaced it with a used one, then its probably also defective. Make sure that vacuum pump gets replaced with an oem pump from a 2017 and up , I'm pretty sure that your problem is still with that vacuum pump . Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  12. I saw some of the posts below and just wanted to confirm that its 100% the brake vacuum pump ..... been there. Shortly after , around the Sam mileage(not related) , the a/c condenser will fail . Itll be blowing cold in the back row but warm up front , just giving you a heads up Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  13. Hey peeps , my first time starting a topic in a forum . I have a 2015 suburban and I recently leveled my truck 2" (rancho rs7000mt in the front and Bilstein 5100 in the rear). It's pretty leveled , but the rear will sag if I throw a stick of gum in the back seat . Seems like I'm popping a wheelie if I have people in the third row or cargo. I know that I can get the 1" lift with spacers and such , but I'd really feel more comfortable just switching out the rear coils . I know that the bilstein B3 and Moog 81069 coils are available for the older models , but what's available for the 2015-2019's ? So my question is ...... What rear coil springs are available for a 2015 - 2019 suburban that'll give me a 1" rear lift ? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. I'm not going to pretend that I know much about trailer brakes except that they can be installed aftermarket, or how important that 3:42 axle actually is especially if you're only going to be towing a few times a year . I wouldn't opt for any of those so called suspension upgrades like magnetic ride or air, a headache down the line , I wouldn't be afraid of it either , those can be converted to a standard suspension pretty easily, Arnot , Rancho , Bilstein have some great deals and they out perform oem. Let's talk reliability lol . I've seen the good ,bad and ugly over the 166k , I can tell You what's going to fail at exactly what mileage . I use mine for a luxury car service, drive with the seats and cargo at capacity all the time and dont have any complaints of the performance under heavy load btw. I know plenty of other guys doing the same , we all repair the same exact things at the same mileage , just keep an ac condenser stabilizer links and brake vacuum pump handy after 60k, til you enter the wonderful world of rods and lifters at 100k. Dont get me wrong, it's a reliable vehicle, but you'll be replacing things you'd never expect to fail , and get a long life out of parts that you would . If you want superior reliability then buy a Land Cruiser.... yeah I said it, just keepin it real. Oh yeah , and the suburban is due for a redesign for 2020 , so might wanna keep that in mind since itll be available in another 8 months .
  15. Hey Victor , typing this while sitting in my 2015 suburban with 166k .My turn to put in my 2 cents to this matter . Get a suburban LT(bench seats) . Both have their pros and cons , but as a daily driver and for what you need it for , id definitely go for the suburban. It's more versatile as far as passenger capacity and you'll even get a more lengthy cargo area with the suburban because you can flip down both rows and not have the cargo area and cab divided. If you want more off road capability just put some Rancho rs7000 or 9000 shocks for a 2" lift and you're straight . Good luck
