First time suburban owner
By BTZN on


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


We have owned our first Suburban for a few months (Z71 - RWD). Previously owned various minivans and outgrew the interior space. Needed something with power to pull a boat. First impression is that it is an excellent vehicle (but talk to me in 100,000 miles). Mileage leaves something to be desired, but you know that going in. My only complaint is the placement of the DVD system. When the screen is down it is right in the line of sight of the rearview mirror and is very distracting. DVD is also fed from the second row of the vehicle. In our minivans the DVD was controlled from the front. It is certainly not enough to warrant a red mark on an excellent vehicle, just an FYI.

Best Features

Bose Stereo, Drivers Information Center and memory settings, Comfortable seating.

Worst Features

DVD control in the front of the vehicle would allow for the screen to be mounted higher which would hopefully take it out of mirror range. Split rear seat would allow more variations of the cargo area.
