    Hi everyone,

    New here. Great Forum. Seriously considering purchasing the new Subarban for my growing family. Looking forward to doing some serious research before going to the dealership.

    Thanks!

    So from what I have read so far here and else where, sounds like folks have electrical issues with these trucks in general. So what what I should I prepare for or expect from a brand new Suburban? More specifically what issues I should look forward to in first 20K miles? I am new to chevy and this would be a first time purchase. What is more prone to fail sooner (if any).

    Thanks
