2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Review

I've leased 3 Sbans since '00. The new '07 re-design is the best one yet but beware of the horrendously bad gas mileage and related GM lies. I've never been able to average more than 10.2 mpg in NY metro area driving. As far as FLEX fuel, there's none to be found anywhere. I felt the pain mostly when fuel went to $5/gal in '08. The 4- cyl mode never works unless going downhill, with a tailwind and completely empty. Problems with 4 door latches that cut your hands open, noisy seat belt tensioners, broken fuel door latch, poor carpeting (easily soiled), start-up knocking engine noise (rockers or mains not getting enough oil). Not keeping this one either, GMAC wants $34K and will not budge.

Favorite Features

Ride comfort, cargo room, winter weather toughness, offroad capabilities, strong full truck frame, good set of creature comforts, good local dealer support.

Suggested Improvements

Large I4 or V6 turbo diesel w/ 6-speed automatic like GM promised 4 years ago. Improving the ROI and not just raising prices for a mediocre vehicle. GMAC should make residuals negotiable which would save them money in the long run by not having to transport, dispose, auction...
