2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
OK I cheated... I rented one from
Enterprise on a recent trip. But this
car just blew me away. I started
measuring the garage the day we got back
to see if one would fit (answer:
barely). The sheer power of the vehicle
is impressive, especially given its
massive size. It was surprisingly easy
to control though, and responded very
well, even in 60mph crosswinds. "Vague
steering" the reviewer said? NO WAY!
Responsivenes is almost snappy for a car
this size. Interior is perfect blend of
comfort and utility, perfect for a
working car. Controls are EVERYWHERE;
but if you relax and think "where should
the so-and-so button be", then that
tends to be right where they put it.
Interior room Room ROOM! I've been in
smaller hotels. Did I mention the power?
And the handling. I just loved driving
this thing! Never have I seen such legroom.
Id like to see jump seats in the back.
We fit 12 into ours, but thats with
three teenagers in cargo. Other than
that everyone had plenty of room. Not
much can be done for the mileage, but
was better than I expected. Had fun
making tight turns in the parking
garage, but a small price to pay overall.
