The fluid level was good and it was not burned. Every time I brought it in it would be in the dealership for less than a day and I would be told that everything is okay. There are 6 choices for the 2002 Chevrolet Suburban Transmission Assembly!!! This transmission unit includes a transmission case, valve body, tail shaft and housing, torque converter automatic only , and all internal lubricated parts. Of course the car dealership, Leesburg Toyota used cars, doesn't help me at all!!! There was no warning or engine light and the transmission appeared fine although it was beyond repair. Transmission failed at 104,000 miles. And there's still room for stuff in back. Don't ever go to them!!! It has 64,000 miles and just stopped on a turn in the middle of an intersection.
The least-expensive base model is gone, but the Chevrolet Suburban continues to provide excellent value in a jumbo package. We sell only high quality used Chevrolet Suburban 1500 automatic transmissions, with 1-3 years warranty and free shipping. The truck has never towed a thing, the car is only used to drive children to school etc. They are suppose to be a respectable dealership but when the transmission blows after 8 months. Always had regular service on this vehicle at the dealership. This to me seems like something that should be fixed by the manufacturer. They would consider this to be a common problem with this type of transmission, a bad design according to the repair shop.
Out of nowhere the vehicle started acting funny and would not reverse and made horrible noises when I hit the gas or the break. You just can't beat the Chevrolet Suburban for its cavernous interior, strong torque for towing, off-road capability, and stable, comfortable ride for long-distance travel. Repair shop says the transmission shell and other components of the transmission was cracked. It's a great companion for long trips, even when towing a hefty trailer. Six or more people can travel in comfort, even in the third-row seat.
Transmission decided to go out. Our discount used Chevrolet Suburban 1500 transmissions come directly from a dependable network of modern junk yards. I drove the vehicle home the one mile from the stop sign in first gear, the transmission would not shift to second, after returning home the car would not go into reverse either. We have drove it under normal driving conditions, no towing nor did my aunt tow anything. The vehicle was not taken to dealership. Know one ever told me to change the transmission fluid. The consumer stated that the sun gear and planetary gear failed.
I called a trans shop in my area and they stated that with Chevy Suburban of my year give and take 3years both ways there is a very common problem with the seal in the trans that it wears too soon and trans oil leaks while driving down the road - the owner does not even notice it - because it gets blown away while driving. The transmission shop states that they have had several customers that have experienced the same problem with this transmission. No warning that it might have a transmission problem. Fold the seats down and this thing will move a mountain of cargo. Now my warranty is up and my transmission is broke.
We were almost in an accident because the vehicle stopped shifting while at highway speeds and barely made it safely to the shoulder. The Suburban was totally redesigned and re-engineered for 2000 and arrived with more powerful engines, a more rigid frame, re-engineered suspension that provided excellent handling, improved brakes and an upgraded interior. . The vehicle was vastly improved, and the improvements continued last year with even more horsepower for the 2500 model's standard 6. Chevrolet says there is nothing they can do as the warranty is for 3 years and 36000 miles. This is the best vehicle to buy for anyone who needs to haul six or more people and cargo at the same time. The transmission pump went out, blew the transmission.
Buying a used Chevrolet Suburban 1500 transmission from a non-reliable dealer is an unnecessary risk. I have no reverse, and it does not want to down shift on any forward gear. The fact that when I called the trans shop atomic transmissions they new right away what happened. I have a 2002 Suburban that since I purchased it in 2002 I have been complaining about the transmission not shifting right. Buy a recycled Chevrolet Suburban 1500 transmission and save thousands of dollars. With 36200 miles stoped at traffic light, light turned green and transmission blew up no reverse and awful noise trying to go forward to get off road.
