"My family loved the truck. I had to sell it becuase of temporary financial crisis. But we would buy it again. My wife loved to drive it. We often took it camping, there is a lot of room in the back. I would say it great quality and reliability. Just needs a little more comfort."
"This my second Suburban, before that I had a Tahoe. These cars are very comfortable, especially for road trips. Love the back up camera. Didn't think I needed it, it is great. Handles excellent, especially in the snow. I have 4 children and as they keep getting bigger, we went to the quad seating (seats 7). No complaints about leg room etc. Love the computer system also. We get 15.8 on average. Mostly in town driving and road trips. Several drink holders and plug-ins for charging the toys. Love the remote start. Cool in summer and warm in winter. Didn't think that or the camera were important...my next one will have it also. Navigation system is entertaining in our small town and driving over the mountain."
"Great for field of view in traffic. I feel like my family and I will survive a crash much better than a smaller vehicle. The GM technology on this vehicle is superb. Nobody even talks about their tire pressure monitor system. It already saved us with a cut tire on a road trip. We get 16 MPG city and 20 MPG highway. Not bad for a safe large vehicle that will tow 10,000 Lbs. And if Arizona had more Ethanol available we would do our part for the environement. That's why we bought the FlexFuel option. When it snowed in Northern, AZ, we drove everywhere we wanted with 4WD. While other folks were stranded. This is my 2nd Suburban since 2000 and my dad had one when I was a kid. I'll buy another if we ever sell this one."
"I have the LTZ model 09 and it's the best SUV I have ever driven. Never thought I would leave Toyota 4 Runner. The 09 Suburban is one of the best equipped and performing SUV I have ever owned. The cherry on top has been the gas millage over 18 on the road wow."
"First problem started on day 1. When I first opened my sunroof, it kept moving back and forth and then it only stayed open 3/4 of the way. Secondly, there is a buzzing sound under the hood like the big fan inside the engine compartment is rubbing against something. Third, it feels like the transmission is not graping right away when I put it in drive. Forth, when I hit a bump in the road the Suburban will bounce a bit instead of feeling like it is staying firmly on the road."
"After having driven and owe Durangos, BMW X5 4.4, and Expeditions in the past....this is the best SUV I ever have....the Suburvan LTZ....It has it all....style, engine, power, space, excellent handling and driving. An last but not least...the EMFS which makes the engine switch from 8 cyl to 4 cyl automatically to save gas. Awesome...!"
"6-7 speed transmission wouls add major feathers to the fuel economy of this vehicle, especially in city driving, rear seat back supports should be adjustabe to make long distance journeys comfortable. It is better equipped than a MB GL 450 that is for sure.."
"Seats are uncomfortable. Rear seats are very uncomfortable. Can not contol rear heat/ac from front seats. Not enough foot room to get out of back seat.
When traveling on Interstate hwy. the vehicle is very noisy due to high speed.
Our third suburban and very disappointed."
"pros: soft ride, big space, heated seats, interior quality better than last model. great long travel vehical. winter driving performance much better than last model. vehical sway in corners much less. reverse video camara a must have.
Cons: long distance for braking. as expected poor city driving & economy. wind/road noise loud on interstate. video screen to bright at night even after ajustment. only sirius radio poor sound quality. engine cylinder shut off dosent operate often."
