2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Consumes 1.5 qt of oil every 1000 miles since 47,000 miles. Have to take to dealership every 1000 miles for oil consumption test to get GM to warranty if they ever find a fix. They were supposed to have a fix Feb. 2009, now it is July 2010 and still no fix. Have a friend with a 2009 Suburban with same problem. Also have had battery drain problems.


Best Features

Seating. Exterior design.


Worst Features

Fix oil consumption problem. Fix battery/electrical problems.

2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I like the suburban, but the newly designed 4/8 cylinder gets worse mileage than my 2003 -HUH? The FACT that is drinks oil (but not enough for GM to care is rather disappointing to say the least. The tailgate does NOT open when the temps dip to sub zero (Minnesota)


Best Features

size, electric tailgate, radio has nice features


Worst Features

fix oil problem and tailgate non functionality in sub zero temps issue.

2007 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had 3 other suburbans, but this is my last. First of all they misrepresented this car when they first started advertising it as better fuel economy with a new engine that went between 4-8 cylinders as it needed around 17 MPG town and 22 on HWY. Big LIE! The best I have ever gotten is 16 MPG on Highway. Normally get 12-14 in town. My 2002 Suburban did 17-19 at all times. When I took it back in to dealership for this, I was told they really didn't get any better than mine was getting. Also, around 50,000 miles it started burning oil, 1 quart per oil change. I now have 100,000 mile on it and it burns 1 quart for every 1000 miles. Big problems with this vehicle. Save your money


Best Features

Drives well and is comfortable. Outside looks good


Worst Features

Fix Engine issues (oil consumption) Gas mileage was better in older suburbans than this one- go back to other engine. GM Give us credit on a new improved version of a suburban. This was an all time bad suburban compared to my past 3, which were great.

2007 Chevrolet Suburban LS 1500 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Seriously the flex fuel is a waste and also don't trust the back glass because it falls off and it will be your fault that it was not well built. Save some money for the tires and all the things that go wrong every time you service your car.


Best Features

do not have a favorite


Worst Features

listen to the people who drive these trucks, it's our money not yours. and please do something about the oil

Review

Ok, I have had a transmission replaced, blown head gaskets, burning oil excessively, air conditioning and heating control problems, door handle peeling (over $100 to replace), and battery drain issues! I can't stand it when you take a 45,000 car in for these issues and they concoct some B.S. about it being in spec and all we can do is keep an eye on it! The thought of the suburban is well intended but the actual reliability of this vehicle is a complete fail. But what's worse is the the excuses that the service departments give when they should step up to the plate and fix the problem!


Best Features

Nice design, Nice ride, great space.


Worst Features

Have Japanese auto makers build your engines and transmissions, because it's obvious that GM can't do it, then for the things that GM does produce have accountability for your company and it's employees so you don't continue putting out overpriced crap as products in the U.S.!
