Safe, spacious and easy, no better family vehicle than our Chevrolet Suburban.

My 2008 Chevrolet suburban is by far the best vehicle I've had since I started driving. I purchased this vehicle when it was already 8 years old, it had only one previous owner who kept it in great condition. After 3 years of driving and maintaining this vehicle I have come to believe that I could not be comfortable in anything smaller with a family of our size. I have 5 children and the suburban fits everyone comfortably with room to spare. The interior of my suburban is leather which makes it easy to clean which is essential when you have children. The children really enjoy the stereo system, the speakers project sound very well throughout the vehicle offering great sound for them to sing along to. The A/C has not faltered at all since we purchased the vehicle, with regular maintenance of course. The cargo area is large enough to carry my double stroller and still provide enough room for groceries and/ or other items. The safety features of the suburban give me great peace of mind. The locking features for the rear doors and windows are especially helpful when traveling with children. My suburban is over ten years old and with proper maintenance I have had no problems with any of the mechanical aspects of the vehicle. It still runs like new, being very quiet and efficient. Although it is a very heavy vehicle, I have never had any reason to doubt the brake system on the vehicle which reassures me of the safety of the suburban. Our family is in very good hands on the road.

Suburban ltz fully loaded, wonderful for a large family!

We love our suburban! It is spacious enough for our family of five and large dog. We have the ltz which comes with a DVD player, and that is a must for us for longer road trips. The vehicle performance, comfort, features and reliability are great. We haven't had any major issues with the vehicle at all. We have found that routine maintenance (breaks for example) is pretty costly due to the quality and size of parts. Unfortunately a lot of rust spots have popped up (but we live in a state that utilizes a lot of salt for the roads in the winter) and unfortunately it is way too costly to have the rust repaired. Other than that we love the vehicle and plan to own it for many years to come.

Chevy Suburban, the ultimate family luxury vehicle

My suburban, in my opinion, is the ultimate family vehicle. It can seat up 7 passengers comfortably. My kids and their friends enjoy the two DVD screens in the back while taking long trips. When the vehicle is in park, the front screen also shows the movie. We enjoy the power windows and locks, the four heated seats, the sunroof. The back hatch is easily opened from the front seat with the push of a button. This has been a very reliable vehicle that has never left my family stranded. Very easy to drive. I thought when I bought it that it would be hard to park it because of the size but I got used to it really quick and it hasn't been a problem.
