2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've had this Suburban for almost 2 years and love it. I pick up me new Suburban next week. This has been reliable (45,000 miles already and only 1 minor problem covered by warranty), comfortable and great ride. Only downside is the gas mileage.


Best Features

Ride, comfort, and overall features.


Worst Features

3rd row seat should fold under the floor.

2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I really have to say that this SUV is wonderful. The heated seats, navigation and back up sensors (dealer installed) are wonderful. It is roomy and the DVD keeps my children quiet which is Priceless. The vehicle is a smoother one than my previous Expedition. The take off is much quicker and the seats are very comfortable. I would tell anyone with kids to buy this if you want peace of mind. The on star is a added security feature I cannot imagine being without.


Best Features

DVD, navigation system, heated seats, OnStar, and hands free calling.


Worst Features

Every Suburban owner should have the back up sensors they are wonderful.

Drives and rides like a large car. W use it instead of our car 90% of the time. If driven sensably we get 22mpg on long trips(55mph).


Best Features

In dash information on trip info, mpg, tire pres. etc.


Worst Features

Parking lot side door protection. Lift gate lock in up position.

Review

I purchased this vehcile for two reasons. First just always wanted one, I've always owned GM products from my '69 Camaro, '71 Chevelle, Sonoma pick up, to Grand Prix and multiple other vehicles. Second of all safety for my large family and towablity.


Best Features

Sun roof, glass lift in the back, tri zone, dvd,6 changer, OnStar, everything the truck has I'm in love with.


Worst Features

I'm a big guy so the third row isn't a problem getting it out. But some kind of fold down system would work better. Sometimes you need to haul goods at the last minute and can't leave the third row at the store or over a family members house.
