Losing patience with Chevy fast!
By Dave on


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


I am as loyal a buyer as Chevy can have after buying 7 Suburban/ Tahoes but have ready to throw in the towel after the issues experienced with my 07 LTZ. It's now burning 1-3 quarts every 2K miles and it's going in for the new fix (waited 8 mos) tomorrow. If they resolve the oil issue I may be back. Otherwise I am turning it in for Ford Exp EL. It's the best design yet, but what good is it if its always in the shop? We love doing family vacations in it but have had too many problems: 1. excessive oil use 2. washer heater -removed my favorite option! 3. Erratic A/C 4. Chrome peeling off int. door handles 5. U-joint 6. 4WD switch breaks 7. Front bumper breaks in snow! 8. 16 mpg max

Best Features

Heater washer fluid (gone now!), auto mirrors, rain sensing wipers,auto tailgate, Auto 4WD, the big bad 20" alloy rims (Bridgstone Duellers last +80K mi!), safety features, room and ride.

Worst Features

Help me continue to buy American! Get rid of the 4/8 active engine and the frail front bumper! Lower the rear tow hitch. Fix the auto fold seat system -rarely works, bigger DVD screen. Improve reliability, MPG, & increase warranty coverage. Lower new prices, they are insane even if quality improves.

has anyone figured out why these pigs are burning/using all this oil? I have an 07 LTZ Burb with 82k miles, been burning oil for 2 years...oil is cheap, the car is not, what's up?
