2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
We just bought an 03 Suburban Z71.
It's for my wife and she loves the
car! We were looking at smaller
imports (Touareg & FX35), but for les
than those, you get a loaded to the
brim full size 7-seater. We added a
10" DVD screen and Garmin navigator
and still right at $40K all-in. It
drives like a dream and can handle
anything. Those imports are very
nice, but just not practical if you
have small kids like we do. With 2500
on the odometer, no problems at all.
Avg 12.5 MPG in the city. If you stay
65-70 MPH (hard to do)on the highway,
you get 19 MPG. Bumping it to 75 MPH
reduces the MPG to 17 - it's on
regular gas though. We love this
Easy steering, throttle response, XM
Radio, great sounding Bose stereo,
sunroof, looks & size. At 19MPG on
regular on the highway, it's not bad
on gas either.
In-dash Navigation would be nice. Why
do they put matching vinyl in the 3rd
row seat? Why not leather?
