2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this vehcile for two reasons. First just always wanted one, I've always owned GM products from my '69 Camaro, '71 Chevelle, Sonoma pick up, to Grand Prix and multiple other vehicles. Second of all safety for my large family and towablity.


Best Features

Sun roof, glass lift in the back, tri zone, dvd,6 changer, OnStar, everything the truck has I'm in love with.


Worst Features

I'm a big guy so the third row isn't a problem getting it out. But some kind of fold down system would work better. Sometimes you need to haul goods at the last minute and can't leave the third row at the store or over a family members house.

Review

I was on my way to pick up a Toyota Seq. and stopped at one last dealership. My wife fell in love with the Suburban and I have been stuck with driving our minivan ever since. We travel a lot with our 3 kids and always have a lot of gear. With kids, get the split bucket seats in the back for easy entry to the far rear seat. I have towed my 3,000 lb boat with a loaded truck on a 2500 mile trip and it was a breeze. It's been about 18k now and not a problem yet. We love the room, comfort, DVD system and the handling in the snow. I am very impressed. If it weren't for the employee pricing last year, I would have never stopped to check it out. I have owned Highlander, Camry, Odyssey, Audi


Best Features

Comfortable seats, lumbar support, huge storage, Bose stereo, DVD, quiet ride, easy controls, trip computer


Worst Features

DVD Screen blocks rear view from mirror, gas mileage, no jacks in far rear for wired headphones

Review

This is the most comfortable vehicle we've owned during the past 35 years. I feel safe when traveling the interstates!


Best Features

We like the comfort, reliability, and ability to see what's ahead!!!


Worst Features

In this day and age, we'd like more fuel economy; however, we bought this vehicle to perform certain tasks, and it does those well!

2005 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS Rwd 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

An awesome vehicle so far. The features alone on this model of Suburban are enough to be excited about. Heated seats aside, OnStar protects and XM entertains, while this cargo and people spacious SUV takes us to wherever we want, in style and comfort. This is in another class as far as Large SUV's are concerned. I have driven many and I always come back to the standard bearer. No one combines this much, luxurious combination, of driving features not costing 60k. More power could be had, but that withstanding,the best in its class.


Best Features

XM, OnStar, heated, memory,and adjustable seats.Cargo room Leather appts.


Worst Features

Put the 6.0 L in the LT's from here on.
