2006 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 4dr SUV 4WD w/1WT (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is an awesome vehicle. I don't have any complaints. This is however a very large vehicle, therefore cannot fit into tight spaces. The ride is smooth, and I haven't had any maintenance issues.

2006 Chevrolet Suburban LS 2500 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Since there wasnt an option for the LTZ i picked the 2500 option. Same engine, V8 6.0, but not a dually.
I bought this in 2014, 3rd owner, with only 74000 miles on it. Ran great, but the fuel pump went due to upstate NY rust problems. Then the tranny went. Got a rebuilt one, but then the radiator cooler exploded, and down went the tranny again. Replaced that at 106000. Now have 113+
Pit new michelins on it, and hopefully now is as good as new. Luxurious options throughout. Plenty of room for wife and 5 kids. Holds value, and the LTZ is unique and hard to find in this year.
Switched to a k&n filter for better mileage, now average about 14 city.
Typical other repairs, wheel hubs, brakes, all in all not too bad, after the transmission went.
I use only synthetic oil, and engine runs quiet.

Review

I bought a new surburban in 2006. After 60,000 miles, the transmission failed and I had to spend $3k on a new one. The vehicle was out of warranty and GM offered no assistance. I am extremely disappointed that after spending $50k on a vehicle that it needed a new transmission with so low mileage. This is my first GM car and my last. I have owned three nissans and one volov and the quality of the suburban is well below the others. I would advise shopping around.
