2008 Chevrolet Suburban SUV LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Traded 05 Z71 Tahoe that was fully loaded for my LTZ. Great truck, getting 19ish on highway. Dark Interior color rocks, love the power everything, rides great, fun to drive, nav is great. Already had onstar & XM but they are still nice. Excellent quality & ride is great. Considered changing brands until I drove the new style. Great job GM


Best Features

4 buckets, nav, DVD, power lift gate & remote start & climate control is better than before.


Worst Features

I don't like the fact I have to stop to program a destination in the nav system. I know it is for safety, but my wife could type in the destination while in route.

Review

My 2000 Excursion diesel got totaled. I loved it even with 200K miles. I looked at the expedition XL but the MPG was 25% less then the Burb. I got an LT1 for $30,085 including added GM leather! Plus I got a $500 Lowes card. The sticker was over $40K great rebates! Although the ford rode much smoother and was more comfortable, the burb got better MPG and was about $7000 cheaper so I decided to try the Chevy. So far I really like it


Best Features

OnStar is pretty darn cool. Just a great looking truck


Worst Features

Two things I hate. the trailer hitch is surrounded by a painted bumper, no roon for touching the trailer. 3rd row seats do not lay flat, every other company's 3rd row do not require you to lug the big things out of the truck to get full cargo space. More 2nd row leg room, like the Fords please.

Review

Strong, quality SUV for the price. Owned a Durango and loved it, but the Suburban is considerably a better SUV. It has more than enough room for the family on long trips and has great towing capability. Looked long and hard before I decided to trade in. It gets better MPG, rides better, and more comfortable. Of course MPG is not the best, but it has features that crossovers to not. I added a K&N filter and it helped increase the MPG. Overall very satisfied with the Suburban.


Best Features

Power, towing, ride comfort, good quality interior, and lots of room.


Worst Features

Fold flat 3rd row, 6spd tranny (addressed on 09 models), darker seat colors.

Review

Traded my 07 Expedition EL for a LTZ White Diamond pkg Suburban for a cheaper monthly payment and better gas mileage. I'm getting worse gas mileage than before, 13.5 mpg mixed city & highway vs. 15.1 mpg with the Expedition. But with all SUVs I don't expect great gas mileage. I love this car more than any other SUV I've ever owned. It drives great, is great looking, comfortable & roomy, it is an all aound great buy-got a steal on it too. Fits my family of 5 wonderfully and is very safe! I have active fuel management and you never can tell when it switches from 4cyl to 8. I will not be buying another vehicle until this one is shot.


Best Features

White Diamond color looks great, DVD player, power steps, roomy interior, drives well, loads of options, backup camera, lots of safety features


Worst Features

Gas mileage (everyone's complaint), flat folding rear seats, all seats pwr, more storage in cargo area, 6-sp transmission, active fuel management doesn't save much gas, Bluetooth

The look of the vehicle.

Fuel economy. Spec said vehicle would get 20 mpg on highway, we only 17 mpg and we babied it. Really disappointed in fuel economy.
