2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My sister asked us to find her a
Suburban. Once we realized that this
would fit our needs we bought one. Up
until we purchased our Z71 I have been
a sport coupe advocate. After taking
the Z71 on two trips, I will never own
another car. It is comfortable, safe
and stable with plenty of room for all
of our luggage, a 90 pound chocolate
lab and will tow the camper we plan to
purchase.


Best Features

Towing capacity, Z71 sporty looks, comfort and safety.


Worst Features

Third row seating to fold flat. Gas mileage.

2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My 2003 Suburban 1500LT is extremely
comfortable on long trips. About 3-4
times a year, I make the 8-hour trip
from Indianapolis to Kansas City with
my wife and baby (presently 18 months
old) to see my folks. There's PLENTY of
room for our luggage and all the gear a
baby/toddler requires. The aisle
between the captain's chairs in the
second row make it easy to get to the
third row bench -- perfect for diaper
changes at questionable rest stops!

After 11 months of ownership, I've
encountered zero mechanical problems.
Let's hope I'm this happy after my
extended warranty expires.

I love this SUV.


Best Features

The power folding exterior mirrors are a must for getting into our tiny garage. The beast wouldn't fit otherwise!


Worst Features

I'd like to see a reverse-assist radar that beeps if you're about to hit the trash cans on the curb. (Or the mailbox, or the kid on the bike, or whatever.) The back of the Suburban is a long, long way from the driver's seat!

2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I'm on my 3rd 4WD Suburban. I love the
security of its size and weight (can
withstand quite an impact with little
or no injury to passengers), its high
seating (so I can see traffic ahead)
its reliability, its adaptability, and
all the creature comforts. I have
absolutely no trouble maneuvering it
into parking spaces or in traffic (it
just takes a little practice at the
outset). I have driven smaller cars
(compact to luxury) and never felt as
safe or secure as in my Suburban.


Best Features

Onstar system, Bose sound system, satellite radio, independent sound system (by headphone) in the middle/rear seat, size (seating and cargo), 4WD (I'm never stuck anywhere), security system,luxury appointments


Worst Features

I wish they would make the diesel model again....a lighted match thrown into a bucket of diesel is extinguished!

Review

The 2003 Z71 suburban I drive at the
present has been my most
enjoyable,easiest driving suv,that I
have driven or owned.One main thing
that has changed it is much easier to
park & get in smaller areas. I like the
outer design. Interior is great, only
wish TV. for gd.kids was'nt
optional.Would be a great selling
feature.As much as the average person
pays for this vehicle throw that in as
standard equipment, kids will have
parents buy this vehicle also some
women too.


Best Features

Roomy,mine has 4 bucket seats easy to get into back set of seats.Easy to park.


Worst Features

Make 3rd set of seats more comf. & to lay flat.
