2006 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I started looking for an SUV months ago. I test drove Yukon XL & Sequoia before deciding on the Suburban. People that complain about the gas mileage are a bit delusional. For the size of vehicle & engine, it's pretty amazing, actually. I've been getting 16-17 mpg in horrible traffic conditions. I avg 21.4mpg on the hwy @60mph & 19.9mpg @70mph. My Tundra got 18mpg @70! It's more quiet & rides more smoothly than the Tundra or Sequoia, not to mention has a better turning radius. It's just a few inches longer, too, but has far more interior space. I admit it's not as luxurious as a Denali or Navigator, but I couldn't pass it up. If you're afraid of the size, don't be. You get used to it quickly

Best Features

-Lack of road & wind noise -Smoothness of engine & controls -Space! -Steering wheel controls for stereo, trip computer, Onstar, etc.

Worst Features

-Split third row seating (like the Tahoe). -Allow the second row 60/40 bench seat to recline
