2006 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 4dr SUV 4WD w/1WT (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this Z71 loaded except for the Nav system. Four trips over 600 miles each way in total comfort and luxury. Fun and comfortable to drive and ride in. Glad I chose this after driving and researching all the others in the large class. Small click under dash at steering wheel when spedometer hits 10mph. No one knew what it was until they finally discovered it was the brake system going thru a self check. Center bucket seats could be more easily adjusted for entry to the rear.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seating. Easy to reach and see all controls. Safe vehicle. Good mileage, 17-18 and 21-22.


Suggested Improvements

Adjustment to center captain seats for access to rear seat.

2006 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 4dr SUV 4WD w/1WT (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Did not expect to be driving this Z71 much but 4 roadtrips of over 1500 miles each over the last 7 months told me I made the right choice. Great looks, leather pkg is great and comfortable. Controls convenient. Fun to drive, soft with little to no noise. Used the 4WD for the 1st time while other family members spun their tires trying to climb a rock driveway. Routine dealership visits were suprisingly pleasant.


Favorite Features

Comfort and look, exterior and interior. Large captains' chairs and rear space.


Suggested Improvements

Stronger AC fan motor although the rear AC takes care or rear compartment well. Less plastic, more soft vinyl or leather.

Review

Overall, this is a great vehicle. Obviously, people buy this car for the size and room, gas mileage is a secondary factor, if at all. (This is why I gave a "relatively" high rating on fuel economy. Our kids love to ride in the 3rd row seats, and it is very easy for them to get in and out of the 3rd row because we have the 2nd row bucket seats. The ride is smooth, quiet, and enjoyable. The interior is very nice, but the '07 is much better (dash, leather, etc.). I like the exterior body style of the '06 better than the '07. When comparing to the Ford Expedition and Toyota Sequoia, the Chevy included more sandard features. The Ford and Toyota "nickels and dimes" you with the same features.


Favorite Features

This is a big car with room for 7 plus room behind the 3rd row for luggage, groceries, etc., without having to compromise the 3rd row seating. The LT is loaded with more features than we can mention. XM satellite was not a factor in our purchase, but now it is all my wife listens to! She loves it!


Suggested Improvements

PARENTS NOTE: 2nd row bench seat does not recline! This is why my wife and I decided on the 2nd row reclining bucket seats. We didn't want our kids' heads flopping forward while sleeping. Also, Chevy needs to figure out how to fold the 3rd row seat into the floor like the Ford Expedition.

Review

Overall, A great SUV. The room is great. Only negative for GM / Chevrolet is to get a better handle on the plastic interior. Letters fade, and just feel cheap. This is something that can be fixed. No mechanical issues at all..100% great, as this is the 2nd Suburban owned. A+ truck with a family. Apparently you did do something with the carpet as it is better than 2003. Get the plastics under control and things should be good.


Favorite Features

Room / 4WD


Suggested Improvements

Plastics, reverse signal.
