Having space for all the occupants and cargo is something that people look forward to when driving a 2022 Chevrolet Suburban. In fact, the automaker claims this large SUV has “enough room at the top for everyone.” Yet, customers are complaining about the dangerous tires and defective visibility that’s causing stress on the road.

2022 Chevy Suburban Tire Problems

The tires that a car rides on say a lot about the safety and handling of the vehicle. Yet, Suburban owners don’t feel safe with what’s included on the SUV.

One NHTSA complaint points out, “I purchased a 2022 Chevrolet Suburban on December 6, 2022 equipped with 4 Bridgestone Alenza A/S 02 tires sized 275 50R22. On December 21, on my way home I hit a bump. When I got home I could audibly hear air leaking out of the passenger rear tire. I called OnStar who sent a tow truck driver out to put the spare on. We could not find a nail or anything in the tire but there was about a 1.5 inch crack in the sidewall about 1 inch away from the rim with nothing sticking in it. I took it to the dealership where I purchased the tire and they ordered a replacement tire. They said that I could file a complaint with the State Department of Transportation if I wanted. It cost me about $328 to repair.”

The complaint goes on to say: “On February 12, around 9:00 pm, I was about an hour and a half away from home about to drive back when the tire sensor light came on saying the passenger rear tire had low air pressure. I pulled into a park and went to look and I again could audibly hear air leaking from the tire. I had not hit any bumps this time, but the tire was completely flat within 20 minutes. When the tow truck driver came to put the spare on, I explained to him what happened previously and that was the second time this had happened within 2 months of purchasing the vehicle. He looked at the tire with me and it had the same tear in the sidewall in the same location as the previous tire. There was no nail or object in the tire, just a 1.5 inch long rigid crack. I noticed that there had been a Bridgestone recall for this type of tire for size 275 55R20 in 2021 because of a pin hole in the sidewall. I believe that my tires are defective.”

For now, Chevy hasn’t issued any information on defective tires. All that’s been talked about is Service Bulletin #030310007K. In this communication, GM talks about vibrations, shaking and other characteristics of bad tires. Additionally, it wasn’t that long ago when GM was under investigation for possible class-action lawsuits because of what’s called “Chevy Shake.” When people make up a name for a car defect with the automaker’s brand in it, that’s a clear sign to stay away from the lineup.

2022 Chevy Suburban Visibility Problems

Seeing out of a large SUV is imperative for staying safe on the road ahead. Yet, the auto glass is causing some concerns for drivers and occupants of the Suburban.

Another NHTSA review reads, “I was driving on the interstate and my sunroof exploded. There were few cars around me and I was not under a bridge. I did not see anything coming at the car or see anything drop or fall behind us. Just heard a lot exploding noise.”

There’s nothing quite as scary as having the sunroof exploding while driving. It has the potential to cause a serious accident, all of which the automaker would be liable for because of the defect. However, Chevy isn’t taking ownership for now. Instead, the company is providing smoke and mirrors by talking about other problems, such as Service Bulletin #PIT5892. In this communication, Chevy admits that the wipers aren’t parking in the right position. New software needs to be installed to get them working correctly. While this Chevy SUV might have “room for everyone,” it can’t possibly land at the top of the competition because of these glaring defects. Instead, it should be listed as one of the biggest lemons for the model year.
