With its capable suspension, excellent powertrain and standard room for nine, the Suburban remains one of the best family-haulers available anywhere. Add Quadrasteer and the Suburban becomes an excellent tow vehicle as well.

It is easy to drive with great performance and gas mileage that I accept, but the thing was slapped together design-wise and put together poorly with cheap materials. The coat hook is placed in the wrong place and most all of the plastic covers for the seat tracks and one rear door light cover fell off. The rear door lights never have worked. The transmission soon failed after the 35,000.00 mile warranty ended and cost over $1,800.00 to rebuild. The ignition switch failed; that cost was $600.00 plus the car rental. A power window motor failed. The leather seat has not torn and has not come loose at a seam, but it is of such thin, poor quality it has worn though.

THIS IS MY 12TH SUBURBAN I HAVE
PURCHASED. I FIRST STARTED DRIVING
SUBURBAN'S WHEN WE STARTED A FAMILY AND
HAD SMALL CHILDREN. BUT AS OUR
CHILDREN GREW UP AND HAD FAMILIES OF
THEIR OWN I CONTINUED TO DRIVE A
SUBURBAN. FOR OUR LIFESTYLE THEY ARE
PERFECT AND ALWAYS VERY DEPENDABLE. AT
ONE POINT BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I WERE
BOTH DRIVING SUBURBANS. NOW OUR GROWN
CHILDREN ARE DRIVING SUBURBAN'S FOR
Half-ton models now feature standard Hydroboost brakes, a tire-pressure monitoring system and newly styled 16- and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Two-wheel-drive models with traction control now feature a locking rear differential, and the trailering package includes a 7-to-4 pin brake wiring adapter. For added safety, there is now a front passenger seatbelt reminder. Lastly, Chevrolet has lowered the output figures for the Vortec 8100 -- the engine is now rated at 320 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque.
