2007 Chevrolet Suburban
There are 5 user reviews for the LT1 1500 4WD trim shown below
- Comfortable cab, good power, towing
- Numerous noises rattles. cheaply built. Seats are VERY HARD to remove
I am totally dissatisfied with this truck. Who engineers these products? I have had Suburbans in the past and i am completely disappointed with this one. The check/service engine light is on a lot. I thought this was one of the few decent GM products. The doors etc rattle more and more. The transmission is not well made. What were they thinking with the back seats? What a pain to get out. i have bought my last American built vehicle. Im sure i will get beat up when I trade it in. I should have spent a little more and bought a Sequoia, they seem to be far more reliable and built much better. I would not expect to have so many problems with a new chevy. It's no surprise GM & Ford are losing so many sales to Toyota and Honda....read morehide

- Fuel consumption is a lot better than other SUVs, comfortable ride
- Loose panels and parts
I just read the reviews and went out to see if my truck has loose parts and indeed, I found that the panel behind the side rear glasses and adjacent to the rear tail gate glass doors were about to fall off, I was not able to hear these two parts rattle while on the road probably because of the windows were closed. The right side running board was also loose and was not screwed in properly. Check the vehicle before you buy or purchasing one of this kind....read morehide

- Fuel economy (14 in "normal" conditions & 22 on our first interstate-only trip). Upgraded interior!
- Blind spots at side and rear pillars (but extra bulk improves rollover safety)
Amazing! The birth of our 4th child happened to coincide with the release of this beautiful new Chevrolet. We had planned to replace our aging Honda Oddesey with a Toyota Sequoia, until our next-door neighbors conviced us to check out the new Suburbans/Yukon XL's. Everything stated as a positive by others is dead-on: handling is great, safety features are wonderful (I recommend the full air-bag package), fuel economy is great for a vehicle this size and rivaled our Oddesey on the first extended trip, the dashboard looks like it was produced by a Japanese luxury automaker (lots of brushed alum and simulated wood-grain, lots of cargo room, and the overall appearance is stunning! Something my wife and I noticed after 20 miles -- we could hear the kids when they talked to us from the rear seat...it was that quiet inside. My only advice to buyers with lots of car seats for kids: Get the second row buckets and third row bench seating. While the second row bench does flip and fold for rear-access, is a real pain with a car seat/booster in it. I think the access between the buckets would have been a better choice for us.
I was a little hesitant to buy this in it's first year of production, but GM's 3/36 and 5/100 (powertrain) warranty convinced me. From what I have experienced so far, I made the right decision!...read morehide

- KILLER LOOKS, SMOOTH RIDE, GREAT FIT AND FINISH BOTH IN AND OUT.
THIS IS OUR SECOND SUBURBAN. WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT OVER OUR 99. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THE VEHICLE ITSELF WHEN IT COMES TO UTILITY AND PEOPLE MOVING. I TOW TRAILERS FULL OF CRUSHED ROCK, PEA GRAVEL, BARK, AND ROCK WITH NO HINT THAT I HAVE ANYTHING IN TOW. I HAVE THREE BOYS AND ALONG WITH THAT COMES FRIENDS, BASEBALL, FISHING, AND THE LIKE. THIS TRUCK (OR I SHOULD CALL IT CAR NOW, DUE TO THE WAY IN WHICH IT RIDES AND HANDLES) GOBBLES UP ANYTHING I THROW AT IT AND BEGS FOR MORE. WHAT OTHER VEHICLE CAN YOU REMOVE ALL THE SEATS AND HAUL ITEMS SUCH AS: 14 SHEETS OF DRYWALL, A FULL SIZE COUCH, 52 INCH PLASMA, A REAR DIFFERENTIAL, VERTICAL FILING CABINETS, A CHEST OF DRAWERS, SHRUBS, TREES, LUMBER, AND THEN WHEN YOUR DONE PUT THE SEATS IN, AND TAKE THE FAMILIY OF FIVE OUT FOR DINNER AND A MOVIE??? THE NEW 2007 IS SUCH AN IMPROVEMENT. THE INTERIOR FEATURES CHROME TRIMMED DIALS WITH RUBBER ACCENTS, BRUSHED ALUMINUM AND FAUX WOOD TRIM THAT ACTUALLY LOOK GOOD, GREAT SEATS, AND A WELL THOUGHT OUT GAUGE CLUSTER. THE RIDE IS ALMOST CAR LIKE SOAKING UP ALL THE DISTURBANCES THAT TRY TO SPILL YOUR STARBUCKS.THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST FAMILY VEHICLE THAT MONEY CAN BUY. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A VEHICLE TO HALL/TOW/AND TRANSPORT YOUR FAMILY...IN MY OPINION....CHEVY SUBURBAN...THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE!!...read morehide
