Excellent large family Truck

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

I love it! It's very roomy and comfy! The seats feel like you're sitting on your couch. There is soo much cargo space! I love how you can fold down the back seat or take it completely out to make more space! I wish that the thrillers row seating had the option to fold 1/3 down or 2/3 down at a time instead it being a bench seat but I've only REALLY needed that option a few times in the 1.5 years I've owned it so there is that.. I love that I have controls upfront for the back heating/cooling with the option to have it controlled in the back. We have four kids and the only downfall I have found is that there is only one tether hook in each row.. Overall, I am very pleased with our purchase! I'd recommend it for large families!

Great car but high gas expense.

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

Excellent vehicle for a family, bought new and it has lasted through three boys. Its has two hundred ninety seven thousand miles and has been a very reliable vehicle. As it has gotten older it burns through a lot of oil and gas but still gets me everywhere I want to be. The only recurring problem is with the electrical system. Front right daytime running light is always burned out, changed many times but not willing to pay the 800 dollars required to fix. USD to driving it across the country with very little problems, change the oil every 3000 miles and it will last a long time.

Chevy Suburban-Awesome family car for a reasonable price!

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

This car's large engine has a lot of get-up-and-go. It has required minimal repairs, despite its age and high mileage. The heated seats are a nice touch and 4WD features essential for winter driving. We have loved the towing capacity of this vehicle and its high clearance for driving in rural areas/dirt roads for camping. Feels like we can tackle just about anything. Our family of seven fits nicely in this large SUV, with plenty of cargo space to accommodate our stuff. We feel we've definitely gotten plenty of bang for our buck in the purchase of our Suburban.

Very roomy, 8 seater suburban

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

I love the room my suburban provides for our family of six. It's extremely roomy so the kids have their own space. The gas mileage is a downfall but that is what comes with a bigger vehicle. My suburban has quite a bit of rust unfortunately. The only mechanical issue I've had with it in the two years that I have had the vehicle is the air conditioning does not work.

Very versatile truck. Good for work and play

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

I love the size and versatility of this truck. I can fit 9 people plus cargo. Unfortunately these vehicles are very prone to rot and it is a constant battle to keep up with the rust. The seating is very comfortable with separate climate controls for front and back seating. The truck has a special transmission setting for towing

- Kathy A

Loving my family go wagon!

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

Large enough to do what's needed. Yet hard on gas. Good on highway but not an everyday travel around town vehicle. Love the fact can move things. Love the fact group outings and don't have to use multi vehicles.. This truck is very comfortable. The truck is used for long trips and is best for this.

- Peaches B

Chevy suburban very reliable.

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

Vehicle very comfortable four-wheel drive is good in the snow bad on gas engine will last up to 200 to 300 thousand miles transmissions in the Chevy suburban are weak and usually have to be replaced before the engine a used vehicle for family trips camping fishing hunting driving through the snow.

- Daryl F

The gas mileage on the interstate is unbelievable! I also have a DVD player

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

I love my suburban BUT I can say most of them have the 4l60e transmission and they don't last long. And I have noticed with my car and others the lifters in the motor make noise. But aside from that it's great to have. It fits my family of five comfortably and it's great for trips and general use.

- Chelsea M

My truck has a lot of room inside for my family so I love it !

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

My Chevrolet suburban is a great vehicle . I've had a few problems here n there but nothing major, always fixable and very affordable . live so far had to replace my throttle body and that cost me just a few hundred bucks, been running great ever since. Pricey for gas though, just saying !

- Hannah N

Poop, our suburban needs all new pieces

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

With the motor having 300,000 miles everything is breaking down. We just spent all our tax return replacing the fuel pump, tires and brakes. The interior is comfortable save for the worn down front seats. Parts and labor are expensive so try to do as much as you can yourself

- Chad L

Chevy suburban is the way to go.

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

Best reliable truck I've ever had. Good on gas, especially highway miles and is able to fit my large family. Makes it easier to go places and better for shopping. There is enough space that everyone doesn't feel cramped in it either. Wouldn't trade this truck for anything.

- Alicia S

it's seat warmers are even stronger, definitely perfect for freezing nights

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

The truck is very comfortable and fits many. Issues are with how old the vehicle is that both the radio and movie system in the truck both do not work. Inconvenience but the most important thing is that it drives. So otherwise, it's a pretty trusty truck for a long time.

- Mackenzie H

My car runs many miles even though it is shown that there is barely any gas.

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

My suburban has been to the mechanic and it's always a different problem and it's not really accurately described to me. I fix the car from one problem and then I have to go and ask what the problem is again because it is hard to determine what is wrong with the car.

- Maria N

8 passenger comfortable ride

2003 Chevrolet Suburban LS

I love my suburban. Repairs can be costly. So far I've had to replace several parts, but I've also had it for 8 years. Very comfortable and seats up to 8 people. Has been very dependable. Lots of room and space. Gas usage is not bad at about 20 miles a gallon.
