2008 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I took posession of my factory ordered Suburban the weekend before the GM labor strike. The quality of my unit should be an example - no problems noted so far. I test drove the Suburban, Yukon/XL and Hummer H2 over a several month period before deciding to order. The new exterior is pleasing, the interior is well designed and comfortable. Leather in Titanium soiled easy - later added Factory seat covers. Radio sounds great - GPS unit has worked flawlessly, though needs upgrade for new road construction in last year. Engine accelerates smooth...in-city driving 11MPG...highway cruise control driving 23 MPH at 55MPH, 19MPH at 65MPH, 16-17MPH at 75MPH. 4WD/Auto provides good traction in snow.
Heated leather bucket seats turned out to be nice addition. GPS has worked out well, use it often. XM radio (Disney) for kids. Ceiling vents in rear areas really move air with independent controls. You really have to have the rear camera option to ensure what is behind you - you feel secure backing.
Fold flat rear seats. Bring cup holders located in back of center console off floor. Potential hood damage (dents) can be caused by pushing down too hard when closing due to shock absorber - definely after adding wind deflector.
