1500 LS 5.3 V8

2006 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
We purchased used from a dealer with 19,000 miles. We traded in our '03 Sequoia because we needed the additional seating and cargo room. Mechanically the car has been very good. My only complaint would be the alignment seems to need adjustment about every six months (we had it done in Dec and again in June). I rated the build quality at a 7 because I think the interior is very cheaply made. After owning a Toyota, it is very apparent to us how flimsy the plastic accessories are. All four of the plastic covers at the base of the seats are in need of replacement. Overall we like the interior space and seating. It also drives nicely, but GM is lucky Toyota doesn't build a bigger Sequoia.
Seating and cargo room in rear. Redesigned brakes seem to work very well and last well for a big vehicle. It also drives well for such a big SUV.
Keep the mechanical quality and build a better interior. The cheap and flimsy plastic interior is nowhere near the quality of Toyota. Design the third row seat to be wider. Toyota also has a much nicer third row seat.
