My Third and Best Suburban
By MrBill on
2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Was a little disapointed that it was made in Mexico, but that has taken a back seat to being in love with the quality and workmanship. Would have loved for it to be union made, but think it is a great value for the bucks. I pull a 30 foot camper trailer and a boat with it for family trips. Pulled a 30 foot boat from VA to Grand Lake, CO without a single hiccup. Performed well at high altitude as at sea level. Good brakes coming down Berthoud Pass. All in all a home run for Chevy. Not a grand slam, but a solid home run!
The heated leather seats, followed closely by the DVD entertainment system, OnStar, and XM Radio. The seats are comfortable, but with the arm rest down feels a bit tight. Really love the moonroof and luggage rack. Back of the rack has a roller which makes getting the canoe on and off a breeze. A+
Make third seat a little less cumbersome to pull out. And beef up those little plactic clips for the floor panels in the back of the second seat. I broke on within a week of taking delivery and the second not long after. Still a very happy camper!
