    Default 03-06 gm suvs

    I was wondering what problems people have with there 03-06 suburban, yukon or escalade. so far I have been through a fuel pump, a rear air compressor, front driver side wheel/hub bearing and a gauge cluster. seem like alot for an 06 escalade with under 100k. I have 2 escaldes so i replaced 2 pumps, 2 compressor, 2 hub bearings but only 1 cluster so far.

    All GM vehicles are junk! I could sit here all night and tell you the shit I see every day as a tech and it would make you sick. By the time a GM has 50k miles on it the repairs start 1 after another. Fuel pumps, cheep front end parts and if you have a 4x4 that gets an oil pan leak time to either pull the motor or the front diff to fix it. If they made a quality product they wouldn't be asking for a bailout. The bigest problem with them being a viable company is the image they have in the publics eye. As building CRAP!!! You don't see Toyota, BMW or Honda asking for help. HMMMMM I wonder why. Out of all 3 Ford will be the only 1 standing when the dust settles. Ya the people love the Hummers and Escalades and we have even cosidered getting 1. Just accept the fact they always need work.

    This is all because GM designs their vehicles for the first owner and the amount of the warrantee time, after that they don't care how quick it falls apart. GM interiors seem to be the worst for being shot by 80k miles, door handles break, seat-foam is broke-down, seems are pulling apart.

    Ford and Dodge seem to design the normal car for about 100k miles before things start to show wear.

    Honda, Toyota, etc. seem to design for more around the 200k mile mark.

    I just saw a 1995 Hyundai Sonata with 179k miles on it, original owned. The fabric interior was still in almost perfect condition, a few minor flaws but the seat foam and material still looked awesome. No sagging headliner and no broken interior items other than a window crank that didn't want to hold the window closed. I was quite impressed, considering that this little black lady never even took care of the car properly.

    We just rented an Expedtion EL. Much nicer than our Tahoe. We have not had any problems with our Tahoe yet, I just do not like the way it handles.

    Is it any coincidence that some agricultural types use the abbreviation GM for Green Manure???

    I have a friend who is big into urban agriculture and growing organic foods. He spent much time playing with poo and I think he enjoys it a little too much.

    I could have sworn he had a picture of him lying down in it, making angels, but this is all I could find. He looks too happy to be around that much poo if you ask me.

    No I do not believe it does-it is stored at my brother's place. I am not referring to the ride. I am talking about how the steering is "sloppy" and rocks (sways) when changing lanes. Most people that own them that I talk to don't really notice it, but it is obvious if you drive an Explorer or Expedition right after driving a Tahoe or Yukon.
