If your Chevrolet Suburban has recurring problems that won’t go away, it may be considered a lemon.

Under the California Lemon Law, a lemon is a vehicle with recurring problems that will not go away, despite a reasonable number of repair attempts by authorized repair facilities. These problems must negatively impact the use, safety or value of your vehicle.

Many owners and lessees of Chevrolet Suburban vehicles report problems that do just that. Learn more about common problems that 2013–Present Chevrolet Suburban, owners and lessees report in their vehicles. If one of these problems repeatedly appear in your Chevrolet Suburban, you may need to talk to a lemon law attorney about your case.

Transmission Problems

Recurring transmission problems are common in lemon law cases. Chevrolet Suburban vehicles are unlikely to be an exception.

Common transmission problems found in these vehicles include buffering noises, shaking, shuddering, jerking, vehicle vibration, shifting problems and transmission failure. In some cases, shifting problems may lead to rollaway vehicles.

If your Chevrolet Suburban is showing transmission problems, take your vehicle to a facility for repairs.

If your Check Engine Light is on, don’t ignore it. Your Chevrolet Suburban may have serious engine problems.

According to complaints submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Chevrolet Suburban vehicles can suffer engine problems such as rough idling, vibration, engine knocking, excessive oil consumption, engine stalling and engines dying while driving. If your Chevy Suburban has any one of these problems, get your engine checked out.

Brake Problems

Faulty brakes can make your vehicle hard to control. Get your brakes repaired before it’s too late.

If your “service brake assist” warning illuminates on your dashboard, you may have brake problems that shouldn’t be overlooked. Complaints submitted to NHTSA reveal that Chevrolet Suburban vehicles’ brakes can make grinding noises, have difficult stopping the vehicle, and stop working altogether.

If you have recurring brake problems that won’t go away, your Chevrolet Suburban may be a lemon.

Seatbelts and Airbag Problems

If your Airbag Warning Light illuminates on your dashboard, you may need to check on your safety systems.

Chevrolet Suburban drivers have reported multiple cracks in the dashboard near the airbag, which may point to other vehicle defects. Not only that, complaints to NHTSA report safety system problems, such as malfunctioning seat belts and airbags that failed to deploy during crashes. If your airbags or seatbelt do not work as intended, you are at an increased risk of injury during a collision.
