    I've lost about 6 of these damn plastic, ill-fitting caps. Is there anyway to prevent? the dealers charge $25. per cap to replace.
    Help!

    Mine is an 02 Suburban LS, no issues (that are serious), 1300 miles, no noises or squeaks that cannot be found and resolved. I have the rattling seatbelt when my little girl gets out and does not give the belt time to 'untangle.'

    I have (maybe I'm not sure) some wind or road noise, maybe needs better seal at windshield or is road/tier noise, I can't fiure out which. But told dealer and they are most receptive to me bringing it in for a look.

    Basically I am about 95% satisfied to this short point in what I hope is long relationship.

    Last week, Edmunds rolled out new pricing pages. Along with this is a new "consumer ratings & reviews". This functionality lives in the "consumer opinions" area of the new vehicle detail page, and allows users to rate a vehicle on a number of different criteria (1 to 10 scale), as well as add his/her own free-form comments.

    If you have some time, we would really appreciate Town Hall members writing a review of their current auto, or a favorite make/model. It takes approximately a week for your review to appear on that make/model.

    If you have any questions, please let me know!

    Thanks!

    I had the same problem. Dealer cleaned out throttle body sludge. My truck had only 35,000 miles. Runs great, now.

    I recently purchased a new 2002 Tahoe LT. Everything is fine so far but the drivers side seems to be lower than the passenger side when parked. My wife noticed this first and I thought it was just parked on a slight incline. I continued to check this when the vehicle was parked on apparent level surfaces and, by golly, it does sit lower on that side .I measured and it appears to be about 1/2 inch difference. This doesn't sound like much and probably isn't but now it's bugging us both everytime we look at it. I hate to be so critical but at $40K the darn thing ought to be level. Has anyone noticed this on their vehicle and any suggestions for correcting it. I have checked the air in the tires and they are all the same.

    Mine has only 550mi on it and runs nicely w/ no problem so far except some little rattling noise especially on roads w/ rough surface. I like the look of the Z71 better but found the LT is better value due to more dealer discount & more options.
    But since I swapped out a new set of wheels & tires, my LT now looks even better than ever.
    FYI: I've talked to a GMC Yukon dealer before purchasing the Tahoe and he told me the Tahoe is better value than Yukon at this time (more discount) because Chevy is competing directly w/ Ford for the best selling title this year.

    Hi,
    I've just bought a '96 burb fitted with its original Delco radio-cassette sound system.
    It's really sufficient for me, the only thing I'd like is to add a CD changer...
    At first glance, I can see 4 possibilities, which one is the best ?
    1/ Is any CD/aux input socket available at the rear of the deck ? I think not as I could find no CD/aux switch on the front panel. In that case, what about those burbs coming with a factory installed CD player just below the radio ?
    2/ The second idea is to use a dummy cassette to put the CD signal thru the cassette playback head : I'm afraid the sound quality would be poor : any experience ?
    3/ The third idea, which does work, is using a converter between the CD deck and the antenna socket of the FM radio. The CD signal becomes an FM signal tuned to an unused frequency and it's OK (probably with some loss in quality as well)
    4/ Of course, I wouldn't like to use the 4th possibility : exchanging the original system for a standard ISO all-in-one sound system...
    Thank you in advance to anyone who could advise, all tips very much welcome ! Thanks
    Pierre (France)

    so far I have put in a K&N filter and a Flow master on my 1998 4wd 454. No money for headers. How about the "performance control module" by venom. Does this really help improve engine performance? and for $349 !! Any other ideas? thanks for the info

  • On long trips, I-95, I constantly have to correct a "tug" to the left on the steering wheel. tugging is present irregardless of lane (road camber); if I let go of the wheel it goes down the road in a straight line. Two front end alignments have not changed anything. It is as though I have to fight the power steering. Am I the only one?
  • looking to get either a 03 tahoe or 03 dodge ram.. not too sure which yet but any help on whch one is better would be great

    right now have a 2002 eclipse and i will be keeping her ( gonna make hera fast ride)

    Hello All- I recently had the driver's side-view mirror replaced on my brand-new 2002 Chevy Z71 Tahoe (<900miles) due to excessive vibration during regular driving. The part that was placed does NOT color-match my Black Onyx vehicle or original mirror. Furthermore, it's not self-dimming. I have two questions for anyone who can help...
    (1) Isn't the driver's side view mirror supposed to be self-dimming STANDARD on all 2002 Chevy Z-71 Tahoes?
    (2) The dealer's GM profile for my truck shows that the mirror they placed (cross-referencing my VIN# with the replacement mirror Kit#) is correct. Do these mirrors need to be repainted to match the correct color? Or does GM have pre-painted mirrors to match their car colors.

    Please advise.... this is driving me crazy as it's a new vehicle.

    Thanks,
    OJSosa
  • ABOUT 4 MONTHS ago i purchased a new 02 tahoe. I have been having alighnment problems. dealership fixed it twice but problem still persists. my steering wheel is also centered to the left. i am slowly finding other tahoe owners with the same problem. i am currently taking GM to arbitration to get a repurchase of my tahoe. email me at sanjose21ca@aol.com if you have the same problem.
  • 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!

    Thanx,

    Paul V.

    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.
  • 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,

    Jim
