Better Safe Than Sorry
By Scott on


2008 Chevrolet Suburban LT 1500 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Figured it time to upgrade from our 1994 Burb w/ 208k miles. Has been a true workhorse and reliable at that. Waited for second year of new model and we're completely satisfied with our LTZ, professional reviews spot on. The only option we didn't get was retractable steps. The engineering is solid, materials first rate and quality no longer an issue. As for the mpg, I work in a trauma center (ER) and suffice to say those in larger, late model vehilces with all the latest safety features predictably do much better. When one considers the cargo (family), the mpg becomes, at least of us, a distant secondary concern! Better safe, than sorry.

Best Features

Abundant safety features: OnStar, stability control, roll-over sensors, 360 degree airbags, anti-lock brakes, rearview camera. Quad capt (heated) seats -love pwr release, sound system rocks, OnStar impressive. Onboard telephone very clear. White Diamond Tricoat very nice & not typical black/white.

Worst Features

Second DVD screen for 3rd row seat, optional satellite TV like Caravan great for the family. Would love a diesel option but 5.3L is excellent. 110 volt power outlets. Extend bumper to bumper warranty to 5 yrs / 100k miles vice 3/36k (5/100k powertrain).
