05 Suburban-cross country tested
By KF on
Vehicle2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
ReviewI drove my new LT from Mass to Colo and then Calif and back to Colo then home while visiting my 2 daughters for 4 weeks, and it performed flawlessly in all weather for 6,850 miles, and got 17.9 MPG for entire trip. I noticed front tires had inner edge scuffing when I returned and Dealer determined car was out of alignment from factory, so they aligned it at 9K miles and put two new tires on under warranty. I am very pleased with how it rides and handles.
Best FeaturesPower folding mirrors, (I had one broken at a carwash on older Subby..not cheap to get fixed) numbered keyfobs that recall your seating presets, stabilitrak/auto ride keeps car from leaning while cornering. Tri zone A/C & Heat, Dvd player, comfortable ride, and good handling-it'sfun to drive this!
Worst FeaturesHard to close last door unless I slam it with all windows closed (too airtight). I added backup camera system for $850. They shd offer it when new for this monster. I wish the gas tank was still 40 gals like my '99 GMC Subby. I often had to gas up 2 times per day on my cross country trip.
